KLM to Introduce a New Premium Comfort Class Product From July 2022
At the Dutch Open on Friday (May 27th), KLM Royal Dutch Airlines Introduced their new Premium Comfort Class product, an intermediate option between Economy and World Business Class. Guests booking the new option will enjoy new seats, service and catering.
On Friday (May 27, 2022), KLM announced the introduction of their new Premium Comfort Class, a booking option between Economy and World Business Class. Customers traveling in Premium Comfort will enjoy new seats designed by Collins Aerospace, as well as distinctive service and catering options. The seats will be wider than Economy Class, while offering more legroom, a generous recline, a larger IFE screen and a footrest. Premium Comfort Class capacity will be between 21 and 28 seats depending on the aircraft. The reconfiguration of the cabins will be carried out by KLM Engineering & Maintenance specialists at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
In Friday’s announcement, KLM’s Executive Vice President – Customer Experience, Boet Kreiken, 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 travellers, 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.”

The Premium Comfort Class experience will start at the airport with more flexible baggage arrangement and SkyPriority, including preferred check-in and boarding. Once in flight, guests traveling in Premium Comfort will also experience a distinctive catering concept. Depending on the duration of the flight, intercontinental customers will enjoy one or two hot meals with a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian dishes, followed by coffee, tea, liqueur and ice cream. Additionally, a variety of snacks and cocktails will be served between meals, with a range largely selected from items previously popular in World Business Class. The first Premium Economy Class equipped aircraft will operate on transatlantic routes to North America, and then a growing range of destinations, from July 2022.
