Singapore Airlines launches Business Class Only Flights to New York

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 16 May 2008

Singapore Airlines has launched its new all-Business Class service to New York (Newark).

The newly reconfigured Airbus A340-500 is fitted with 100 of the airline’s new award-winning Business Class seats. Each leather-upholstered Business Class seat measures 30 inches (76 cm) in width; almost 50% wider than most other products in this class. The seats are arranged in a 4-abreast, 1-2-1, layout, with every seat having direct access to the aisle. When it is time to sleep, the new Business Class seat converts into a fully-flat bed.

The conversion of all five of the airline’s A340-500s to an all-Business Class seating is being carried out in phases. For now, the all-Business Class A340-500 operates three times weekly, with daily services to New York scheduled to begin end June. By late September 2008, Singapore Airlines will also fly the all-Business Class service to Los Angeles daily.

Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice-President Marketing and the Regions, Huang Cheng Eng, said the all-Business Class service is in response to demand from corporate travellers.

“Our direct flights to the US have always been well-received. With this newly reconfigured aircraft, we will be increasing our Business Class capacity, and offering our customers travelling to the US, the opportunity to experience our award-winning new Business Class seat.”
