MUNICH—Air Berlin announced Friday that it will double the size of its business-class cabins on short-haul flights. Previously, business class occupied only the first row of the aircraft.

The new business-class section will be comprised of two rows. Passengers will be guaranteed an empty middle seat and 32” of legroom. The seats will otherwise be the same, as they are currently on intra-European flights.

Business-class passengers will receive a pre-departure beverage, as well as a selection of food and beverages during the flight. Passengers will also be provided a pillow.

“Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback, we decided to expand the offer to include the second row of seats as well, and are open to the idea of expanding it even further in future,” said Götz Ahmelmann, the airline’s chief commercial officer.

The additional business class accommodations will be placed into service and be available for purchase starting September 1, 2017.

Business-class passengers will also receive priority boarding and have access to a priority check-in desk, a dedicated security lane, and the carrier’s lounges. Air Berlin business-class passengers can rebook at no additional cost, or have their ticket refunded in the event of a cancellation.
