On Wednesday (January 25, 2023), Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) announced that they have extended their Premium Economy Class to their Airbus A340-300 fleet. The first completed aircraft, registration HB-JMB, departed Zurich for Johannesburg on Tuesday evening, January 24, 2023. All four of SWISS’ A340s will feature Premium Economy by April 2023, at which time customers can book Premium Economy on routes from Zurich to Johannesburg, Hong Kong, and Chicago.

In Wednesday’s announcement, SWISS’ Chief Commercial Officer, Tamur Goudarzi Pour, said,

“Our new Premium Economy Class has rapidly established itself as a hugely popular way of travel. And the highly positive feedback that we’ve received from our customers – on the greater seating comfort, the enhanced service, the wider choice of meals and the quality of the food – has only strengthened our resolve to offer this top-quality product on more of our routes.”

SWISS previously installed Premium Economy Class on their Boeing 777-300ER fleet, with the first aircraft completed in February 2022. The carrier was the first Lufthansa Group airline to introduce the best-in-class Premium Economy seat, which sets a new standard in comfort with a pitch of almost a meter, and a 48 cm. width.
