Singapore Airlines has today announced that London and Hong Kong will be the next destinations to be served by its newest Airbus A380 aircraft, featuring its recently unveiled new cabin products. The airline has always been seen as providing a high quality inflight service and these new cabins continue to offer incredible comfort and service for long haul flights.
Starting from the 16th February 2018, the aircraft will operate as SQ322 (Singapore-London) on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. From the 17th February 2018 to the 5th April 2018, it will operate as SQ305 (London-Singapore). With effect from the 7th April 2018, the new aircraft are scheduled to operate as SQ317 (London-Singapore) on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
From the 18th February 2018 to the 6th April 2018, the new A380 aircraft will also be deployed on services to Hong Kong, operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays as SQ860 (Singapore-Hong Kong) and SQ863 (Hong Kong-Singapore). With effect from the 8th April 2018, the aircraft are scheduled to operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays as SQ856 (Singapore-Hong Kong) and SQ861 (Hong Kong-Singapore).
These new cabin products were publicly unveiled last year in November and debuted on the 18th December 2017 to Sydney following the delivery of the first of five new A380 aircraft from Airbus.
In the Double Suites, the centre divider between rooms makes way for a luxurious double bed. At a touch, the mood lighting in these private bedrooms change to one of five settings. Or, you can individually finetune all 10 light sources from your control panel to suit the time of day or the activity. You can even save your personal settings through your KrisWorld account and they’ll even greet you automatically on your next flight.
The new cabin products will initially be fitted to the five new A380 jets, following which retrofit work will commence on 14 aircraft that are already in service.
In First Class you’ll find bone china tableware from Wedgwood laid out on crisp linen on your personal dining table. This provides a supurb location to enjoy the sumptuous meal from the inflight menu. Or, you can get a main course crafted by the airline’s acclaimed International Culinary Panel of chefs from around the world.
The new A380 cabin products seat up to 471 customers in four classes, with six in Suites, 78 in Business Class, 44 in Premium Economy Class and 343 in Economy Class.
