Singapore Airlines looks to ‘redefine premium air travel’ with new luxury cabins
Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new cabin products which will be fitted to its Airbus A380 fleet starting from next month. This follows an extensive four-year development programme.
Using the theme of “Space made personal, experience the difference”, the new cabin offerings provide more space and privacy in all classes, featuring bespoke elements designed especially for Singapore Airlines.
The new cabin products, displayed for the first time today, will enter service next month on the first of five new A380 aircraft entering the fleet. Retrofit work will also take place on 14 existing aircraft, to ensure product consistency across the airline’s entire A380 fleet.
The new Singapore Airlines A380 will be configured with 471 seats in four classes, featuring six Singapore Airlines Suites and 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, as well as 44 Premium Economy Class seats and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck.
The research, design, development and installation of the new products on 19 Singapore Airlines A380s represents an investment of about $850 million.
Singapore Airlines Suites
The six suites, tucked behind the front cabin of the upper deck, include sliding doors, lavish furnishing and a full-flat bed with adjustable recline and plush leather chair, enabling customers to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest in bed without the need to convert the bed from a sitting position. For couples travelling together, the beds in the first two suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed. When not in use, the bed can be stowed completely, creating even more space within each suite.
Two of the suites include lavatories, one of which has a sit-down vanity counter.
The new suites were designed by Pierrejean Design Studio and manufactured by Zodiac Seats UK.
