In a significant move, Emirates Airlines, in 2021, announced the modification of 105 of its modern wide-body aircraft to incorporate the "Premium Economy Class" product, along with enhancements to other cabins. Following the completion of this retrofit program, the airline's fleet will feature 111 Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft equipped with premium economy-class seats. Emirates became the first carrier in the region to offer a premium economy-class cabin.

The premium economy class provides passengers with individual seats, each offering dimensions of 40 inches in length and 19.5 inches in width. The seats recline by eight inches, providing a comfortable cradle position with ample legroom. Covered in stain-resistant cream leather with embossed detailing and a wood frieze similar to business class, these seats prioritize both style and comfort. The seating arrangement includes a six-position adjustable headrest, legrest, and footrest. Each seat also features a 13.3-inch video screen, one of the largest in its class.

Emirates Airlines is set to enhance its operations in Australia, with plans to serve its second daily flight between Dubai and Brisbane using an Airbus A380 from October 1. Additionally, the airline will resume the second daily flight between Dubai and Perth with a Boeing 777 on December 1, 2024. By doing so, Emirates aims to meet the growing demand for international travel through Dubai and support air connectivity for both passengers and cargo, contributing to Australian industries and trade.
