Cathay to Expand Premium Economy

Cathay Pacific is to begin introducing Premium Economy class across its Middle East routes from October.

In addition to being wider, the Premium Economy seat has a larger table and includes a 10.6-inch TV screen with noise-cancelling headset. A power outlet with multiple adaptors enables tablet and mobile devices to be charged while on board.

Customers of Premium Economy are entitled to priority boarding and check-in at dedicated counters, as well as a 25kg bagge allowance—up from the 20kg in Economy.

All flights departing from its Hong Kong base to the region will see a gradual introduction of the enhanced seating from the following dates:

October 28—Dubai (daily)

December 3—Riyadh-Bahrain (twice weekly)

December 5—Bahrain-Riyadh (twice weekly)

January 1—Riyadh-Abu Dhabi (weekly)

January 5—Abu Dhabi-Riyadh (weekly)
