Sheridan Designs Exclusive Bedding for Qantas
Those flying in Qantas First Class suites will be treated to an even better night’s rest, thanks to the airline’s new range of luxurious bedding products. Exclusively created by Australia’s premium home and lifestyle brand Sheridan, the swanky bedding range is the first step in the airline’s A380 fleet cabin upgrade, in addition to features like new contoured cushioning and entertainment screens with higher resolutions.
Customers will be spoilt for choice by a pillow menu of three styles to suit different comfort needs, including the lightweight and soft Ultimate Comfort Pillow as well as the Memory Foam Pillow. Crafted with natural and luxurious materials in neutral and earthy tones, the Sheridan bedding ensemble is designed to match the First Class cabin interior.
Children under two of age and traveling on all international services in all cabins, will be able to enjoy soft baby blankets in pure cotton. The Sheridan designed baby blanket will be available in Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First on all international services and the new bedding ensemble will be available in First Class on A380 services to London, Dubai, Los Angeles and Dallas/Fort Worth progressively from early October 2017.
SIA Partners Lufthansa Group To Launch New Flights
Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Lufthansa Group have confirmed October 1, 2017 as the launch date for their joint venture co-operation covering flights between Singapore, Australia and Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium.
Customers can choose from a wider range of travel itineraries and fare products that will be progressively offered by the airlines under the joint venture agreement.
Since November 2015, when both airline groups signed the joint venture agreement, they have expanded capacity between Singapore and both Germany and Switzerland. This includes the introduction of new SIA-operated flights between Singapore and Dusseldorf in July 2016. In March 2017, SWISS deployed its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on daily flights between Singapore and Zurich. Lufthansa has also announced plans to re-introduce services between Singapore and Munich from March 2018.
Cebu Includes Tax In Fares
Cebu Pacific, the Philippines low-cost airline, is now including the cost of its Domestic Passenger Service Charge (DPSC) in all ticket quotes. Typically known as the terminal fee, the inclusion is required for domestic flights operating out of airports managed by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
Passengers who are only transiting through the 33 CAAP-managed airports are exempted from paying the DPSC. Depending on the airport, CAAP terminal fees can range from USD$1 to USD$4.
Cebu Pacific passengers have also been given the option to pay the travel tax on international flights of USD$32, plus a handling fee of USD$2 when they book their flights online, via www.cebupacificair.com, or through Cebu Pacific ticket offices.
Passengers who are exempt from the tax, or are eligible for reduced travel tax, can still book, pay and confirm their flights on Cebu Pacific, but will need to present valid tax exemption documents upon check-in.
