Singapore Airlines (SIA) last week released Premium Economy, its newest class of travel, for sale with the official introduction date fixed for 29 August.
The new seats will be available on all five A380 flights between Heathrow and Singapore, whilst Manchester originating passengers can book from 23 September.
The class will be available on all the airline's Airbus A380s and Boeing 777-300ERs, in addition to the future fleet of Airbus A350s.
The total investment for the new cabin class is estimated at US$80m.
The seat width will range between 18.5 and 19.5 inches and offer an eight-inch recline for more ease and comfort. Noise-cancelling headphones will complement a 13.3-inch full HD monitor.
The food and beverage range will also be extended offering passengers the opportunity to select from the Premium Economy ‘Book the Cook’ service featuring popular dishes. Champagne will be offered, in addition to a selection of wines, throughout the flight.
On the ground customers will have a baggage allowance of 35kg, priority check-in and baggage handling.
With both its First Class and Business Class products SIA has set a very high standard which others have often failed to even equalise. It is late into the Premium Economy but you can be pretty certain that the final offering will be very competitive. www.siapremiumeconomy.com
