KLM Unveils New Premium Comfort Cabin

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has unveiled its new premium economy cabin. The “Premium Comfort Class” is an intermediate cabin that offers more space, luxury, service options, comfort and privacy than Economy Class, at lower prices than World Business Class.

Depending on the aircraft type, the capacity of Premium Comfort Class will vary from 21 to 28 seats, which will be wider than standard seats and offer more legroom, besides a larger screen and a footrest. Premium Comfort seats can also recline further than Economy Class seats.

Boet Kreiken, executive vice president of KLM customer experience, said: “We have great expectations for this new Premium Comfort Class, based on extensive market research. The new class will meet the wishes of business passengers as well as leisure travelers, strengthening KLM’s standing as a global network carrier offering an appealing and varied range: World Business Class, Premium Comfort and Economy Class. It also reaffirms our partnership with Delta Air Lines, Air France and Virgin Atlantic on North Atlantic routes, where we can now combine all products on all routes.”

Premium Comfort offers a distinctive catering concept. On intercontinental services, one or two hot meals will be served, depending on the duration of the flight. There will always be a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian dishes. After the meal, passengers will be offered coffee, tea, liqueur and ice cream. A range of snacks and cocktails will also be served between meals. In line with the airline’s sustainability goals, the catering materials in Premium Comfort are reusable (cutlery, bowls and plates made of lightweight polypropylene), while those that are non-reusable are made of recycled PEF.

The Premium Comfort Class experience will start at the airport, where passengers will have more flexible baggage arrangements and SkyPriority privileges, including preferential check-in and boarding.

The first aircraft equipped with Premium Comfort Class will operate on routes to North America. It is anticipated that passengers will be able to book Premium Comfort to a growing range of destinations towards the end of the July 2022.
