Air India Introduces Premium Economy Class on Limited Flights

Air India has announced the launch of its new Premium Economy class, which offers customers an elevated travel experience with superior cabin features and top-notch inflight services. This new cabin option is now available for booking, with travel starting on May 15, 2023, and makes Air India the first and only Indian airline to offer four cabin classes - First, Business, Premium Economy, and Economy.

Initially, Air India's Premium Economy class will be available on select routes serviced by its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, including Bengaluru-San Francisco, Mumbai-San Francisco, and Mumbai-New York. Campbell Wilson, CEO and MD of Air India, stated that the airline is excited to offer a unique Premium Economy experience to customers who want an upgraded but affordable flying experience, and the airline plans to expand this option to many more routes in the near future.

Passengers travelling in Premium Economy will enjoy several added benefits, including fast-track airport experience with dedicated check-in counters, priority baggage tags, and early boarding. The separate, spacious cabin features 48 leather-upholstered seats with memory foam, offering extra legroom, adjustable headrests, and footrests for comfort. Passengers also receive a complimentary TUMI amenity kit, including flight socks, an eye mask, lip moisturizer, and a pen, as well as noise-cancelling headphones for use with Air India's in-flight entertainment system.

Onboard dining in Premium Economy includes a welcome drink, a menu of three meal options served on fine chinaware, and a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. This new Premium Economy class reflects Air India's commitment to modernizing its fleet and transforming into a global carrier of world-class products and services.
