Singapore Airlines unveils new hotel suites in the sky

Already a particular favourite among Wexas clients, Singapore Airlines has just announced exciting new developments for its A380 premium cabins.

First Class

Singapore Airlines has a track record in firsts. As the original airline to fly the double-decker Airbus A380, it introduced the superjumbo suite category to the world. Now, almost a decade on, it’s announced its second generation of first class.

Aimed squarely at competitors Etihad and Emirates, the new suites are more than twice the size of their predecessors, with Singapore Airlines having halved the number available from 12 to six.

Expect everything from a 32-inch HD screen and electronic blinds to a personal wardrobe, Bose noise-cancelling headphones and a Lalique amenity kit. There’s even a vanity table, complete with LED-lit mirror.

It’s all wrapped in raised walls, providing delightfully secluded privacy. And, the new seat is particularly impressive – a 21-inch-wide leather armchair by Poltrona Frau that tilts and swivels to your heart’s content. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the curated dining; expect the likes of lobster dishes designed by celebrity chefs.

Then, when you’re ready to doze off in the supplied Lalique pyjamas, your attendant will set up your bed with plush pillows and cotton duvet. While, at six foot four, there’s more than enough room to spread out, those travelling with a partner are especially well accommodated. The dividers roll down, creating a truly expansive suite that features a double bed.

And, the lucky six will be served by two bathrooms – a privileged ratio. While both are impressively oversized, one even comes with a sit-down vanity counter.

Business Class

Singapore Airlines have also reimagined their lie-flat business class offering, with a cocoon-like seat affording travellers increased privacy. A 1-2-1 configuration ensures generous space; seats are 25 inches wide a feature a giant 50 inches of legroom.

There’s also an innovative option to draw down the privacy divider, forming a double bed. Of course, each seat still comes with its own power plug and 18-inch touchscreen.

Premium Economy

Not to miss out, Premium Economy has also enjoyed a refresh. Along with an eight-inch recline, each seat is 19.5 inches wide and feature 38 inches of pitch. The oversized footrests are a nice touch, as are the noise-cancelling headphones.
