Singapore Airlines has announced that London and Hong Kong will be the next destinations to be served by the airline’s new Airbus A380s – which feature all-new products in first, business and economy class.
The service to London will begin on February 16, 2018, with flight SQ322 departing Singapore on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Two days later, on February 18, the new A380s 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).
BusinessClass was present when Singapore Airlines publicly unveiled its new cabin products – including the revolutionary First Suites, complete with double bed and leather armchair – in early November, and you can read all about the day and our thoughts on the new products here.
The new A380 cabins then debuted on December 18, 2017, to Sydney following the delivery of the first of five new A380s from Airbus.
The new cabin products have initially been fitted to the five new A380s, following which retrofit work will commence on the other 14 A380 aircraft that are already in service.
SIA’s A380s offer up to 471 customers over four classes, with six First Suites, 78 Business Class seats, 44 Premium Economy Class seats, and 343 Economy Class seats.
