Travelers flying between these two cities will be able to experience the airline’s new regional business-class seats.
Singapore Airlines has announced that Adelaide will be the launch destination for its new Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft. The costal capital of South Australia is home to renowned museums, long beachfronts, and various festivals, making it a popular destination both for domestic and international travelers.
Come December 17, the new aircraft will operate as SQ279 from Singapore to Adelaide, and return as SQ278 from Adelaide to Singapore.
Not only does the aircraft have higher ceilings, larger windows, and an extra-wide body, it also comes with lighting designed to reduce jetlag.
Fitted with 303 seats across two classes, 40 in business class and 263 in economy class, the aircraft also features the airline’s newly launched regional cabin products.
Business-class passengers will be able to enjoy Stelia Aerospace-designed seats that can recline to form a fully flat 76-inch-long, 26-inch-wide bed, with all seats offering direct access to the aisle due to a 1-2-1 configuration. Whether travelling alone or with a partner, adjustable dividers at the center seats allow a customized level of privacy.
Meanwhile, the economy-class cabin is arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration, with seats that come with ergonomically designed contour backrest and a six-way adjustable headrest with foldable wings to provide more neck support.
Most notably, the A350 aircraft will be fitted with the latest Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system, which is designed with a new user interface that offers a more intuitive user experience and navigation options.
Plus, passengers will have access to a high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi service onboard the new A350-900, allowing them to stay connected as they fly.
