Sydney first location to see Singapore Airlines’ brand-new A380 cabin items
Singapore Airlines’ day-to-day Sydney service will be the very first to see the airline company’s brand-new Jet A380 cabin products, with the first of its brand-new aircraft equipped with the revamped seating due to start flying the path on December 18.
The airline company will be unveiling its new Suites, business class, premium economy and economy class seat items on November 2 following 4 years of development, and will be outfitting an overall of five A380s with the new products. It’s anticipated that the airline company’s 19 existing A380s will be entirely refitted with the new products over the coming years, though no timeframe has been announced.Of the airline
‘s five day-to-day flights on the Sydney path, just 2 of them are currently zipped the A380 (the others are zipped the Boeing 777-300ER and 777-200) and it will be the airline company’s SQ221 and SQ232 flights that will initially see the new superjumbo. The Sydney-bound flight (SQ221) leaves Singapore at 2040 and shows up the following morning at 0740, while the return leg (SQ232) leaves Sydney at 1215 and shows up in Singapore at 1735.
Additional locations for the brand-new A380 products will be unveiled in the coming months. Singapore Airlines currently flies the aircraft on its Beijing, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Mumbai, New Delhi, New York City, Osaka, Paris, Shanghai and Zurich routes.Singapore Airlines has
been relatively tight-lipped about its brand-new offerings on the superjumbos, though there has been speculation that the 12 first class seats used by its present fleet of A380s will be cut in half to simply 6 on the new airplane. The very first class cabin is also expected to be moved from the lower to the upper deck of the aircraft.The airline’s current Suites items, which are just readily available on board the A380, are popular, though rates for the seats can be rather expensive when not using frequent-flyer points redemptions. For example, a return Suites ticket from Singapore-Sydney with a one-week stay in mid-January currently opts for simply over S$ 8,600(US$ 6,320 ). In related news, the airline company recently began flying its A350 on its third of four daily flights to Brisbane.Meanwhile, the airline company’s brand-new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner– the very first of the new aircraft to be delivered to any carrier– presented in South Carolina previously this month, ahead of its delivery to Singapore Airlines in the very first half of next year.
