The airline Swiss will renew its long-haul fleet with the help of Airbus A350-900 aircraft. The carrier has now announced that it will offer an enlarged premium economy class on board the new arrivals.
In the Swiss configuration, the Airbus A350-900 will have 242 seats. Of these, 38 will be in the premium economy class. This means that this transport class will have more capacity than existing long-haul aircraft. The company explains, among other things, that it would respond to increasing demand.
Swiss is expected to introduce the first Airbus A2025-350 in 900. Initially you will receive five copies from the factory. The airline has now determined what the passenger cabin of the brand-new aircraft should look like and has thus reached an important project milestone. This decides how the cabin areas will be divided, including the arrangement of seats, aisles, washrooms and kitchens. It is also clear how many seats will be available in each travel class.
In addition to premium economy, 45 business class, three first class and 256 economy class seats will be offered on board the Airbus A350-900 aircraft. Chief Commercial Officer Tamur Goudarzi Pour said: “Thanks to the well-thought-out interior design in all classes on our aircraft, our guests will benefit from a completely new travel experience that is second to none from 2025. We will be the only well-known airline in the world to continue to offer First Class on all long-haul aircraft. We will also continue to expand the share of our very successful Premium Economy Class. Swiss is clearly positioning itself as the “leading premium airline” in Europe.
