Canadian low-cost airline WestJet will introduce a premium economy class on its aircraft from July of this year. The airline will install four rows of premium economy seats in its Boeing 737 aircraft.
The seats will offer 36-inch seat-pitch and extra legroom for passengers. The airline has already completed the installation of the seats in the aircraft, according to Flight Global.
However, it is yet to finalize an in-flight entertainment system as well as the pricing structure for the new seat category.
WestJet, which has a codeshare deal with American Airlines, is Canada’s second largest airline and flies to 85 destinations in North America and the Caribbean.
