Nok Air, the low-cost arm of Thai, has introduced a “Nok Premium Seat”.
The Thai airline now allows passengers to book the first five rows or the two rows by emergency exits and pay a premium for those seats. Those seats offer slightly more legroom.
Nok Air (DD) previously allowed passengers to pick these more convenient seats at no extra charge.
The airline says it is to make passengers feel more comfortable, private and special.
The new premium seats are distinguished from the regular black ones by yellow covers slipped over the headrests.
Patee Sarasin, CEO of Nok Air, said:
“At Nok Air, we always give priority to safety but one thing that we never stop to offer to all of our passengers is to improve on board services to make our passengers feel more comfortable. And now we have launched Nok Air’s latest new service, Nok Premium Seat that can be easily reserved on Nok Air website with remaining of free seat selection service for regular seats.”
Passengers can reserve the service directly when booking the flight on www.nokair.com,
Nok Air’s 189-seat Boeing 737-800s carry 42 premium seats each.
The airline still allows passenger to select other, regular seats at no charge.
