Emirates’ Economy Class customers can now enjoy even more personal space and privacy with the ability to purchase three adjoining seats.

Emirates’ Economy Class customers can now enjoy even more personal space and privacy onboard with the ability to purchase up to three empty adjoining seats on their flight.

According to a press release by Emirates, the airline will offer these seats to all Economy Class customers holding a confirmed booking. Customers will not be able to pre-book empty seats, as these are subject to availability. Moreover, empty seats will only be offered for purchase at the airport check-in counter prior to flight departure, and costs range from AED 200 to AED 600 (US$ 55 to US$ 165) per empty seat, plus applicable taxes depending on the flight sector.

Emirates introduced this new seat product on the back of customer feedback, addressing the needs of a range of customers seeking extra privacy and space while still flying in Economy Class. This includes couples who wish to have the entire row to themselves (maximum of three seats in the same row), parents travelling with in-lap children, or those who simply want the added assurance of more space while travelling during pandemic times.

In addition to the new empty seat option, Emirates currently offers a variety of seat products for Economy Class customers to choose their favourite seat based on their travel needs:

  • Extra legroom seats: exit row seats offering additional space but subject to safety requirements;
  • Twin seats: seats in a row of two at the back of Emirates’ Boeing 777 aircraft, and on the upper deck of Emirates’ 2-class Airbus A380 aircraft;
  • Preferred seats: seats in the first section of the cabin and on the upper deck of a two-class A380;
  • Regular seats: all other Economy seats.

These seats, available via Emirates.com, Emirates contact centres, at airport check-in, onboard, and through travel agent partners, are offered for free or at a charge, depending on the customer’s Emirates Skywards membership tier, fare type, time to departure, and other special needs. Visit our page on emirates.com for more information.

Emirates has also introduced handsome discounts on excess baggage rates, to assist customers flying on essential trips to take home what they need most. Discounts range from 35% up to 60% off normal rates depending on the sector. And must be pre-booked and pre-paid up to 4 hours before flight departure via emirates.com, through contact centres or at an Emirates sales office.
