Taking luxury on planes to the next level, Singapore Airlines is adding Suites – complete with full beds and bathrooms – to its A380 fleet.
Each Suite is now furnished with a flat bed with an adjustable recline and a separate chair. 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 space within each Suite.
Each Suite also has a 32-inch full HD monitor that can swivel for different viewing angles, a full-sized personal wardrobe, customised handbag stowage compartment and amenity box. The Suites cabin also features two lavatories, one of which has a sit-down vanity counter.
The new cabin products will enter service next month on the first of five new A380 aircraft entering the fleet. Retrofit work will also take place on 14 existing aircraft to ensure product consistency across the airline’s entire A380 fleet.
The research, design, development and installation of the new products on all 19 Singapore Airlines A380s represents an investment of about US$850 million.
The new Singapore Airlines A380 will be configured with 471 seats in four classes, featuring six Suites and 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, as well as 44 Premium Economy Class seats and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck.
