Lufthansa’s new Premium Economy Class is now available for booking on flights flown by Boeing 747-8 aircraft.
From December 10, the Premium Economy Class will have guaranteed availability on all flights served by the new jumbo. Destinations that can now be booked for onward connecting flights from Frankfurt include Buenos Aires, Chicago, Hong Kong, Mexico City, São Paulo, Seoul, Beijing and Washington, D.C.
From late January 2015, the first retrofitted A340-600 aircraft are scheduled to take off from Munich for Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo and from late April 2015 retrofitted A380-800 aircraft are planned to fly from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, New York, Miami, Houston, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore.
To mark the start of Premium Economy ticket sales, a range of special promotional return fares are on offer for UK passengers travelling from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. These include £909 to Seoul, £949 to Hong Kong, £999 to Beijing, £1,099 to Sao Paulo and £1,199 to Buenos Aires. Fares are inclusive of all taxes and charges and can be booked up until June 12 for travel between December 10 and March 28, 2015.
The carrier's general manager UK & Ireland, Christian Schindler, said: “We have had an incredible response to our Premium Economy Class since its launch. With the attractive introductory fares this new travel experience is now within more reach, allowing our customers to benefit from up to 50% more personal space. The design and features of the seat are based on extensive passenger surveys and workshops with sales partners. More than 1.5 million passengers per year will be able to enjoy a new travel experience with the installation of 3,600 seats in all 106 long-haul aircraft in just one year.”
