Singapore Airlines’ new A380 cabin products debuts in Sydney

19 December, 2017

Customers travelling between Singapore and Sydney have become the first to experience Singapore Airlines' all-new cabin products, with the entry into service of its recently-delivered Airbus A380 aircraft equipped with the new seats and in-flight entertainment system.

The aircraft entered into service as flight SQ221, which departed from Singapore at 2047 hrs local time on 18-Dec-2017 (Monday) and arrived into Sydney at 0743hrs local time yesterday. The Blue Swan Daily was in attendance to witness the historic event and get a closer look at the new aircraft.

Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President South West Pacific Philip Goh said: "In 2007 Sydney was the launch destination for the world's first ever commercial flight of the A380 when SQ380 made it's maiden journey from Singapore to Sydney. A decade on and we are once again pleased to host our brand new A380 with new cabin all new cabin products. I am sure our customers will enjoy the increased space and privacy that these new cabin products deliver across all cabin classes."


Each Suite is furnished with a separate full-flat bed with adjustable recline and plush leather chair, enabling customers to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest in bed without the need to convert the bed from a sitting position.

For couples travelling together, the beds in the first two Suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed. When not in use, the bed can be stowed completely, creating even more personal space within each Suite.

Business Class

Measuring 25 inches in width, the Business Class seat, which has two side wings for back support, reclines directly into a comfortable full-flat bed (78 inches). Customers may also stretch out fully in a 'sun-deck' position to watch movies on the 18-inch high definition touch-screen monitor.

A unique feature of the new Business Class seat is that it has a carbon fibre composite shell structure, as compared to conventional aircraft seats which use metal as the primary support structure.

Seats in the Business Class cabin are arranged in a forward-facing, four-abreast (1-2-1) configuration that offers all customers direct access to the aisle.
