Emirates celebrates one year of Premium Economy in Singapore


Emirates marks one year of Premium Economy in Singapore, carrying 26,000 passengers on nearly 730 A380 flights to destinations like London, Paris, and New York.

Emirates celebrates a year since the debut of its Premium Economy product in Singapore, having so far carried 26,000 passengers in the Premium Economy class on nearly 730 four-class A380 flights between Singapore and Dubai from June 2023 to May 2024. The airline’s latest product was especially popular among families and solo travellers from Singapore, with top outbound destinations including London, Dubai, Paris, Barcelona, and New York.

Emirates’ latest product can be experienced on flights EK 354 and EK 355 between Singapore and Dubai, as well as beyond Dubai to 15 other destinations where Emirates’ four-class A380 operates. The world-class product takes passenger comfort to new heights with an extensive suite of features that transforms the journey itself into a destination.

Rashed Alfajeer, Emirates’ Country Manager for Singapore & Brunei, said: “We are delighted to commemorate the first anniversary of the launch of Emirates Premium Economy in Singapore. Our latest product has won multiple accolades and serves as the ideal middle ground between Economy Class and Business Class, offering travellers a more comfortable and luxurious product choice but at a lower fare than Business Class. Ever since the launch, we’ve noticed a positive and steady demand on the Emirates’ Premium Economy product which have led to a favourable seat load factor. We are committed to offering our passengers the distinctive Emirates experience whenever they fly with us, and will continue innovating to provide elevated customer-centric and future-forward services.”
