Wide range of in-flight offerings on Singapore Airlines’ new A380s

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Customers travelling on Singapore Airlines’ latest Airbus A380 aircraft, featuring the Airline’s newly launched cabin products, can look forward to a wide range of in-flight offerings including soft furnishings, amenities, an exquisite dining experience and highly advanced in-flight entertainment system.

The finer touches

Created for a distinguished few, each of Singapore Airlines’ Suites will feature a plush mattress bedding, two pillows and a fluffy cotton duvet, complete with embroidery crafted by the French luxury brand, Lalique. Complemented with a stylish sleeper suit, slippers, eyeshades and socks, customers can lounge in comfort before drifting into a peaceful sleep in their private cabin in the sky, says the airline in a statement.

The relaxed and contemporary setting in Business Class is enhanced by a stylish combination of padded bed sheets, blankets as well as a larger pillow. These soft furnishings provide a relaxed atmosphere on board, bringing greater comfort for customers as they work or unwind during the flight.

Luxurious in-flight amenities

According to the airline, Suites customers on selected flights will receive an amenity kit with toiletries and perfumes or a unisex kit containing lifestyle items, specially designed and created under the co-brand partnership with Lalique. Each of the separate his-and-hers amenity kits will consist of a fragrance, lip balm and a specially designed pouch. In addition, the ladies’ set includes a face moisturiser and hand cream while the men’s set includes a body lotion and aftershave balm.

The unisex kit containing lifestyle items is designed as a collectable item, featuring a Lalique candle, scented soap, and lip balm and body lotion. For a limited period only, the lifestyle kit will also include a miniature ornamental crystal fish from Lalique. The design of all three amenity kits will be refreshed regularly, says the airline.

Suites customers can freshen up in the two stylishly-furnished lavatories with a special citrus-scented facial mist, body lotion and fragrance by Lalique. Business Class customers can look forward to a pampering treat, with a range of Penhaligon’s washroom amenities available on board such as hand lotion, facial mist and fragrance, according to the statement.

Customers travelling in Premium Economy Class will receive an amenity kit featuring a special A380 livery to commemorate the launch. The amenity kit consists of a toothbrush, toothpaste and anti-slip socks. In Economy Class, customers on selected flights will receive an amenity kit which includes a toothbrush, toothpaste and socks. Children’s amenities from Disney will be available in all cabin classes for our young customers.

Exquisite in-flight dining experience

According to the airline, to further enhance the culinary experience, Suites customers will dine with Wedgwood service-ware and Lalique-designed crystal glassware. With every meal complemented by a selection of fine wines and champagnes specially put together by a panel of wine experts, customers will be spoilt for choice.

As part of Singapore Airlines’ commitment to enhancing sustainability practices, Suites customers can look forward to meals created by the International Culinary Panel (ICP), featuring more sustainable ingredients and fresh local produce. The new menus will be initially introduced to Suites customers on selected routes, and progressively made available in other classes, says Singapore Airlines.

In the Business Class cabin, customers can look forward to an even more refined service and dining experience with all meals served on Narumi-designed chinaware. Coupled with Singapore Airlines’ world-class service, customers will enjoy a truly delightful experience as they wine and dine on board.

Krisworld in-flight entertainment system

According to the airline, customers flying on the new A380s entering Singapore Airlines’ fleet in the coming months will be offered even greater control over their in-flight entertainment (IFE) experience with the launch of myKrisWorld, a new IFE interactive feature.

This personalised IFE experience includes features which are new in the industry, making the Airline the first to offer these to customers. Such features include content recommendations based on customer preferences and viewing history, and KrisFlyer members being able to bookmark and resume content, as well as customise and save preferences on myKrisWorld for subsequent flights.

KrisFlyer members travelling across all classes can also select their choice of playlists from the SingaporeAir mobile app prior to the flight, and transfer their selections to the onboard system when they connect to myKrisWorld to continue with their IFE experience, says the airline.

KrisFlyer members, as well as Suites and Business Class customers, will also have access to additional in-flight entertainment content choices. In addition, KrisFlyer members travelling in Suites will be able to control the lighting in their private cabin and save their lighting preferences for future flights.

In-flight connectivity

Customers can also experience high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi service on Singapore Airlines’ new A380, the world’s first GX-enabled A380 aircraft. The aircraft will be equipped with Inmarsat GX Aviation’s broadband connectivity system, offered through SITAONAIR.

Currently available on selected Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in Singapore Airlines’ fleet, this service will be progressively introduced on aircraft that are equipped with SITAONAIR’s Internet and mobile in-flight connectivity, adds the airline.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
