Singapore Airlines has unveiled its new A380 cabin products, following a four year development programme. The new products will be retro-fitted in its existing 14 Airbus A380s, starting this December. This will ensure product consistency across the Airline’s entire A380 fleet and ride on the theme “Space made personal, experience the difference”. Passengers flying in the five new A380 aircraft entering the fleet in December will be the first to enjoy the experience.
The new A380 cabin products
Designed to provide more space and privacy in all classes, the new features are designed especially for Singapore Airlines’ customers. The new A380 will be configured with 471 seats across four classes. Apart from six Suites and 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, the main deck will cater for Premium Economy and Economy Class passengers. The research, design, development and installation of the new products on all nineteen Singapore Airlines A380s represents an investment of about USD850 million.
