World’s Best Premium Economy Class Airline Seat


Some airline carriers offer Premium Economy, a separate class of seating and service, which differs from standard Economy, typically sits between Business Class and Economy. Premium Economy is found mostly on international flights and, compared to standard Economy, offers about 5-7 inches of extra legroom as well as additional amenities. A Premium Economy fare is generally 65% less expensive than a Business Class fare.

TURKISH AIRLINES has won top accolade for the Best Premium Economy Class Airline Seat at the Skytrax 2012 World Airline Awards held at Farnborough Air Show.

Turkish Airlines has recently been named as “Best Airline in Europe” as well as “Best Airline Southern Europe” and “Best Premium Economy Seats” by Skytrax in the 2012 awards. One of the fastest growing airlines in the world, Turkish Airlines flies to more than 200 international destinations and over 40 domestic points within Turkey.

The carrier has recently introduced a premium economy cabin on some of their long haul flights (Beijing, Sao Paulo, Toronto, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hong Kong and New York). Comfort class offers that little bit of luxury at a reasonable price with extra legroom, enhanced onboard catering and better in-flight entertainment.

Turkish Airline welcomes its passengers with aperitif drinks or beverages, nuts and Turkish mezzes. The most important feature of the service in this class is using the porcelain service equipment and linen cloths which are equivalent to Business Class.
