Singapore Airlines will offer lie-flat Business Class seats on all flights to and from Australia, effective 1 November. The move coincides with the launch of Airbus A350-900 services on Singapore Airlines’ Singapore-Melbourne flights SQ247/8
Singapore Airlines’ Regional Vice President Southwest Pacific, Philip Goh said the introduction of the A350-900 to Melbourne was the final piece in the product consistency puzzle for both Melbourne and Australia.
“We are very excited to be able to offer our customers a level of product consistency and service across all Singapore Airlines operated services to and from Australia,” Goh said.
“From 1 November every one of our 141 weekly flights from our six destinations across Australia will provide customers the opportunity to enjoy a lie-flat Business Class seat, while those travelling from Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra will also have the choice of Premium Economy on every flight.”
The announcement follows Singapore Airlines’ confirmation last month that SQ247/8 will increase to five times weekly from 1 January, providing more travel options and connectivity to Wellington, Singapore and beyond.
The A350-900 features 42 Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 layout providing each customer with direct aisle access.
Premium Economy Class features 24 seats in a 2-4-2 layout providing extra comfort, choices, and privileges for passengers. Economy Class features 187 seats in a 3-3-3 layout.
Singapore Airlines has a total of 67 A350-900 aircraft on firm order. As of 1 August 2019 it has taken delivery of 38 A350-900 aircraft, with the first aircraft having entered the fleet in March 2016. The airline currently operates one of its multi daily Melbourne service with the A350-900 aircraft.
