KLM Debuts New Economy Comfort Seats

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has officially launched its new Economy Comfort zone.
 
A seat in the new Economy Comfort zone offers passengers almost four inches of more legroom and allows them to recline twice as far as a standard seat. Economy Comfort passengers will also be able to disembark first, because the zone is in the front section of the Economy Class cabin. The service and meals in Economy Comfort are the same as those in Economy Class. Every day, KLM will have more than 1,500 Economy Comfort seats available.
 
With Economy Comfort, KLM extends its range of seating options for passengers travelling Economy Class. Passengers could already opt for seats with extra legroom and for a seat in a row of two.
 
The fee for an Economy Comfort seat will range from $118 to $221 for a one-way trip, depending on the distance covered. Flying Blue Platinum members and passengers flying on a fully flexible Economy Class ticket can reserve Economy Comfort seats free of charge. Flying Blue Gold members will get a 50 percent discount and Flying Blue Silver members will get a 25 percent discount.
 
Once passengers have booked a ticket, they can reserve an Economy Comfort seat via the ‘Manage My Booking’ tab on www.klm.com from 90 days before departure. Bookings can also be made via telephone reservation or at the ticket offices or when passengers check-in online via www.klm.com. Economy Comfort seats can also be booked at the airport, via the self-service kiosks or at local customer service desks (Note: Not available at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol).
