This marks the debut of Premium Economy cabins on Air India's narrowbody planes, catering to the preferences of modern travellers.

Air India plans to extend this three-class configuration to its entire fleet of full-service narrowbody aircraft within the next year. Existing planes are being progressively retrofitted, while new aircraft will be delivered with these upgraded cabin options.

Campbell Wilson, CEO & Managing Director of Air India, said, “The introduction of a three-class cabin to Air India’s narrowbody fleet and commencement of interior refits are important steps in the journey of enhancing the flying experience."

"The upgrade of the narrowbody fleet, which operates on domestic and short-haul international network, complements the upgraded widebody experience now available on our A350 fleet and new B777s, and on all other widebodies as they are refitted over the next two years. This comprehensive upgradation of Air India’s physical product is an important component of transforming into a world-class airline," he added.

Business Class passengers will enjoy spacious 40-inch seats with extensive recline, adjustable armrests, footrests, and advanced tray tables with multiple charging points.

Premium Economy offers larger seats with superior upholstery, wider pitch, and enhanced meal options served in upgraded crockery, promising a superior travel experience. Economy Class seats are also designed for comfort, with ergonomic features and convenient amenities.

This move by Air India is expected to appeal to travellers seeking enhanced comfort and amenities on shorter routes, reinforcing its position as a leader in the global aviation sector.
