KQ enhancing the travel experience for its economy class passengers

Economy  class passengers that fly Kenya Airways are in for a treat. The Kenyan carrier has said it will  be introducing an Economy Comfort seat, which is set to enhance customer comfort and experience.

Economy Comfort features increased seat pitch of 9cm more than the average Economy Class seats.

The Economy Comfort seats are located in the first three rows of Economy Class hence availing 27 seats per aircraft.

Additionally, passengers traveling in these seats will enjoy more benefits such as a reserved overhead cabin for their carry-on luggage, special inflight products and priority disembarking from the aircraft.

“Our new Economy Comfort with increased seat pitch will ensure our guests have an additional option on how to travel. The B787 Dreamliner aircraft have therefore, been modified accordingly to what we are calling Economy Comfort,” KQ Chief Commercial Officer Ursula Silling said during the announcement.

The product offering will support the airline’s network expansion initiatives. KQ now has more long-haul routes on its network such as New York, Rome and Geneva in addition to Amsterdam, London, Paris, Bangkok, and Guangzhou.
