With effect from December 2009, passengers travelling in Economy Class on all intercontinental flights operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can choose seats offering greater comfort.
The new Economy Comfort zone offers up to 10cm more legroom and back supports that can recline twice as far. Economy Comfort passengers can also disembark quicker after landing because their seating zone is located at the front of Economy Class.
Depending on the distances involved, the price of the new zone will amount to between €80 and €150 for a single leg of the journey. Flying Blue Platinum members and passengers travelling on a full-flex Economy Class ticket can book Economy Comfort seats without a surcharge. Flying Blue Gold members will be offered a 50% discount and Flying Blue Silver members 25%. The service in Economy Comfort will be the same as that in Economy Class.
Economy Comfort seats can be booked from the end of November on klm's websites or at the airport using the self-service check-in or transfer kiosks.
