Austrian Airlines expands Premium Economy Class

Published on : Saturday, October 16, 2021

Starting next spring, even more Austrian Airlines passengers will be able to fly long-haul flights in the Premium Economy Class booking category. The travel class, which was introduced in 2018, will be expanded on the domestic airline’s entire Boeing 767 fleet from its current 18 to 30 seats per aircraft.

“As a genuinely Austrian airline, we carry ‘Premium’ in our hearts. With the expansion of the Premium Economy Class, we want to offer better travel comfort to even more passengers on long-haul routes,” says CCO Michael Trestl. “This travel class appeals to all those who want a bit more comfort and service on long-haul trips yet still want to fly on a price-conscious basis. This is how we want to make the travel experience for each passenger individually customizable and improved.”

The conversion of the Austrian Boeing 767 fleet will be carried out in the first quarter of 2022. With the summer flight schedule of 2022, the three B767 aircraft that primarily serve destinations in North America will fly in the new cabin configuration. The heart of the Premium Economy Class is a seat specially made for the Lufthansa Group, which offers passengers more legroom and comfort on their journey compared to Economy Class. In addition, passengers in this travel class can check in two pieces of luggage, each weighing up to 23 kilograms, free of charge and enjoy a culinary high-class program with a three- to four-course menu on board.
