Slated to commence daily operations on 17 December 2018, the new A350-900 will operate as SQ279 from Singapore to Adelaide, and return as SQ278, from Adelaide to Singapore, subject to regulatory approval.

The new A350-900 medium-haul aircraft will be fitted with 303 seats across two classes, with 40 seats in Business Class and 263 seats in Economy Class.

 Equipped with the airline’s recently launched new regional Business Class and Economy Class cabin products, the Business Class cabin boasts a 1-2-1 seat arrangement, providing every customer with direct aisle access, while the Economy Class cabin will be arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration.

The A350-900 will be fitted with the latest Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system designed with a new user interface that offers a more intuitive user experience and navigation options.

Customers will receive content recommendations based on their preferences and viewing history, while KrisFlyer members can continue to bookmark and resume content, as well as customise and save preferences and playlists for their subsequent flights. KrisFlyer members and Business Class customers will also have access to additional in-flight entertainment content choices.

Complementing this experience, customers can select their choice of playlists from the SingaporeAir mobile app prior to the flight, and transfer these selections to myKrisWorld by pairing their personal electronic devices with the onboard system via Near-Field Communication (NFC).

Furthermore, customers will have access to high-speed in-flight WiFi service onboard the new A350-900. The aircraft will be equipped with Inmarsat GX Aviation’s broadband connectivity system, offered through SITAOnAir.

Following Adelaide, the A350-900 medium haul aircraft will also be deployed to Brisbane next year, subject to regulatory approval.

Singapore Airlines ordered a total of 67 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, 21 of which are already in the fleet and have been fitted with Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class, long-haul cabin products.
