Singapore Airlines’ Premium Economy Class
Brisbane: The steady growth in the adoption of premium economy class by travellers is still to be felt in the corporate travel market as most companies are yet to incorporate it into their company travel policies according to a report into the seating class.
The report, which was produced by 4th Dimension, Flight Centre Travel Group's (FCTG) business travel consulting division, found that despite the increased demand, product availability remains sporadic, potentially inhibiting its desired growth. This is especially evident in the corporate market, as business travel policies remain skeptical to propose premium economy.
Premium economy was pioneered by Taiwan’s EVA Air in the early 1990s and is being progressively rolled-out by airlines on medium and long-haul aircraft around the world.
