SWISS will be offering more Premium Economy seats on its new Airbus A350-900s than on other long-haul aircraft in its fleet. Compared to the A350s of parent airline Lufthansa, the seat count will be significantly lower to offer customers more space and comfort.

SWISS said on September 11 that it has finalized the cabin configuration of the A350-900, which it will introduce in 2025. The twin jet will replace four A340-300s. Despite their age and imminent retirement, the airline refurbished the cabin of the A340s earlier this year and added 21 Premium Economy class seats. Its twelve Boeing 777-300ERs have 24 Premium Economy seats.
