Brussels Airlines earlier this month introduced its premium economy class, Economy Plus, on flights from Africa, the US or Canada.

Located in the first four rows of the economy cabin, Economy Plus features 32 seats in total providing extra leg room and a 20-degree recline instead of the eight degrees in economy. Passengers who buy the product will also receive complimentary champagne and chocolates, an amenity kit and a linen pillow.

To celebrate the launch, the airline will give 20 000 of its customers a free upgrade to economy plus in July and August.

As part of its product revamp, Brussels Airlines has also upgraded all its A330 economy class seats. “The combination of the backrest and the headrest did not offer ideal comfort for long flights and has now replaced the entire backrests for better support and the best comfort,” the airline said.
