Singapore Airlines has launched Airbus A330-300 flights between Singapore’s Changi Airport and  Brisbane International Airport.

The arrival of the aircraft into Brisbane coincides with the 25th anniversary of the airline’s operation of services into the city, and the first flight was met by Singapore Airlines Chief Executive Officer, Chew Choon Seng, and the new Queensland Minister for Tourism, The Hon Peter Lawlor MP.

The Singapore Airlines A330-300 is configured in a two-class layout, with 30 new Business Class seats, and 255 Economy Class seats.

 The new Business Class seat has been especially designed for regional and medium-haul routes, offering enhanced levels of comfort, privacy and functionality. The seat converts to an incline lie-flat bed. The cabin is laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration (distinct from the existing B777 on these routes, which is in a 2-3-2 layout).

Economy Class features 255 seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration. These are the new generation Singapore Airlines Economy Class seats, also available on the Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380 aircraft.

The Singapore Airlines A330-300 also offers iPod and iPhone connectivity in every seat, including Economy Class.

All seats feature the new KrisWorld, Singapore Airlines inflight entertainment system.

Singapore Airlines has currently four A330-300s in fleet, with another fifteen A330-300s due to be delivered between now and 2010. Progressively, the planes will enter service between Singapore and other cities in Australia (Adelaide and Perth), then Japan (Nagoya and Osaka).
