Premium Economy by Cathay

Cathay Pacific Airways is making its popular Premium Economy Class seats available to passengers on 22 regional routes from 27 October 2013.

“Our Premium Economy Class has been very well received by our long haul passengers, with many telling us that it is a genuine upgrade in the travel experience as well as being good value for money”, said Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management James Tong.

“A total of 74 of our long haul aircraft are now fitted with Premium Economy and, as a third of their flying time is on regional routes, it makes great sense to make Premium Economy available on regional flights”, he added.

Cathay Pacific first introduced Premium Economy on routes to/from Europe, North America, Australia, the Middle East and India in March 2012.  It is a separate cabin class with 26 and 34 seats (depending on the aircraft type).  These offer higher levels of comfort with a 38-inch seat pitch – six inches more than Economy Class – and a greater recline angle.  In-seat features include a large meal table, cocktail table, footrest, a 10.6-inch personal television, an in-seat power outlet, a multi-port connector for personal devices and extra personal stowage space.  Passengers enjoy an increased baggage allowance of 25kg, dedicated check-in and priority boarding. www.cathaypacific.com
