Air New Zealand has taken its Premium wins at Skytrax one step further.
The airline has today announced that its award-winning Premium Economy will soon be available on the airline’s Tasman, Pacific Island and Bali services.
At the Skytrax World Airline Awards overnight, the carrier scored gold for the World’s Best Premium Economy Class, as well as Best Premium Economy Class airline seat.
And now anyone travelling on its Boeing 777 and 787-9 Dreamliner operated Tasman, Pacific Island and Bali services can book the fares, effective from October 25.
Air New Zealand’s chief sales and commercial officer Cam Wallace says that it had previously been difficult to offer Premium Economy as a product given the mixed bag of aircraft flying the short haul routes.
“With the arrival of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, refurbishment of our Boeing 777-200 fleet and exit of the Boeing 747-400, we now have a consistent Premium Economy offering across our twin aisle wide body fleet,” he said.
“We know many of our customers enjoy the extra space and comfort when travelling Premium Economy on our long haul services and we’re looking forward to extending this product to shorter flights.”
Air New Zealand’s Premium Economy on Tasman, Pacific Island and Bali services is similar to its long haul product and includes a range of benefits, including greater space and premium food as well as additional baggage allowances, premium check-in and priority boarding.
