Swiss is joining its sister carriers Lufthansa, Austrian and Brussels Airlines in introducing a premium economy cabin to its B777 fleet.
The new product will be configured in three rows of 2-4-2 for a total 24 seats in the cabin, and will offer 20 per cent more seat pitch, 25 per cent more recline, and 10 per cent more width compared to economy.
The carrier said that work would begin to retrofit aircraft in the winter of 2020/2021, with the product available from spring 2021.
The airline said that its premium economy offering will be “a newly developed seat providing extensive legroom and movement”.
Swiss said it was responding to growing demand for an air travel product between economy and business class, and said it had been “encouraged by the positive experiences with such a product at Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines”.
