Hongkong: From 9 August 2015, customers will go through an entire new experience while travelling in Singapore Airlines. The flyers travelling on select flights from Singapore to Sydney will be the first to experience new cabin class, which will subsequently be made available to other destinations served by the Airline’s Airbus A380s and Boeing 777-300ERs, in addition to the future fleet of Airbus A350s.
Premium Economy Class will be slowly made popular in other sectors, including Beijing, Delhi, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, London, Mumbai, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo and Zurich in the latter part of 2015 and early 2016.
“We have been heartened by the highly positive public reaction to our new Premium Economy Class since our plans were announced last year,” said Singapore Airlines’ CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.
Each seat has a width ranging between 18.5 and 19.5 inches and offers an eight-inch recline for more ease and comfort. Complementing this is a sleek 13.3-inch full HD monitor, the largest in its class. Active noise-cancelling headphones will be provided to enhance the in-flight audio experience.
