SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines has unveiled its highly-anticipated new cabin products which will be fitted to its Airbus A380 fleet starting from next month, following an extensive four-year development programme.
Riding on the theme of “Space made personal, experience the difference”, the new cabin offerings provide more space and privacy in all classes, featuring intimate and bespoke elements designed especially for the Singapore Airlines customer.
The new cabin products will enter service next month on the first of five new A380 aircraft entering the fleet. Retrofit work will start in late 2018 on the 14 existing A380s that will be fitted with the new products, with all targeted for completion in 2020.
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 US$850 million.
Singapore Airlines’ A380s currently serve Auckland, Beijing, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Mumbai, New Delhi, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Sydney, and Zurich.
