Air Canada has announced it will introduce a new international Premium Economy cabin for travellers seeking enhanced comfort and service on international flights as it continues to modernise its widebody fleet with the addition of five new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Complementing its Economy and Executive First options on international flights, Air Canada’s new Premium Economy cabin will offer travellers a wide range of benefits including a dedicated cabin featuring larger seats that are wider, providing more recline, with seven more inches of legroom than Economy and are never more than one seat from the aisle (due to a 2-4-2 configuration).
Passengers will also be offered premium meals with complimentary bar service and priority check-in and baggage delivery at the airport.
Air Canada’s Premium Economy cabin will be introduced on Air Canada’s Montreal-Paris flights effective 11 July 2013.
Additional routes offering Premium Economy will be added over time as new aircraft enter the carrier’s mainline fleet.
Air Canada will also expand and modernise its international widebody fleet with the addition of five new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
In addition to two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft previously announced that will be delivered in June and August 2013, Air Canada today announced that it will add three new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to be delivered in November and December 2013 and February 2014.
