KLM Royal Dutch Airlines customers can now book Economy Comfort on flights within Europe.
From December 1st onwards, Economy Comfort will be available on flights operated by Boeing 737 aircraft, which includes seven UK departure points serving Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
The new Economy Comfort offering allows up to 3.5 inches more legroom and the backrest can recline 40 per cent more than in Economy class.
Further benefits include in-seat power and faster disembarkment after landing as Economy Comfort seats are located at the front of Economy Class.
From the UK, Economy Comfort is available on Boeing 737 aircraft operating from seven departure points: Aberdeen, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London Heathrow, Manchester and Newcastle.
Economy Class passengers can purchase an Economy Comfort seat for an additional fee of £16 to £25 each way, depending on the duration of the flight.
Flying Blue Elite members benefit from a discount on Economy Comfort.
Erik Varwijk, managing director, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, said: “KLM Economy Comfort responds to the desire of passengers in Economy Class to have more choice in comfort.
“Previously, we conducted all Economy Comfort on intercontinental routes, and seats with more legroom. The big success shows the large customer demand for further differentiation.”
