Singapore Airlines new cabin products redefine premium air travel

Singapore Airlines unveiled its highly anticipated new cabin products, which will be fitted to its Airbus A380 fleet, following an extensive four-year development programme.

The interior of the Business Class cabin showcases a modern yet organic colour scheme featuring a selection of soothing and sumptuous leather and fabrics, in addition to lightweight carbon composite materials.

A larger back shell on every seat creates a cocoon-like feel for more privacy while the centre divider can be fully lowered to form double beds, making the two centre seats an ideal choice for customers such as families travelling together.

A unique feature of the new Business Class seat is that it has a carbon fibre composite shell structure, as compared to conventional aircraft seats which use metal as the primary support structure.  This thinner base structure allows for better optimisation of the seat and creates more under-seat stowage space to accommodate a full-sized cabin bag and laptop bag or handbag.

Seats in the Business Class cabin are arranged in a forward-facing, four-abreast (1-2-1) configuration that offers all customers direct access to the aisle.  JPA’s clever use of design allows the cabin layout to feature an extra two rows of business class seats, without compromising on passenger’s personal space.

Other features include a business panel equipped with USB ports and in-seat power, reading lights with adjustable brightness level, mood lighting, enlarged dining table designed for flexibility in dining positions, as well as stowage space for personal amenities with a thoughtful design that puts everything within easy reach.
