SIAEC and Airbus Complete First Cabin Retrofit for Singapore Airlines’ A380 Fleet

SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC), in collaboration with Airbus Services, recently completed the first of 14 A380 full-cabin retrofits for Singapore Airlines (SIA).

The extensive retrofit programme, which was announced in November 2017, sees the cabin products selected for SIA’s five recently delivered A380 aircraft installed on the airline’s in-service aircraft.

The airline’s widely-acclaimed new A380 cabin offers more personal space in all classes.

Singapore Airlines' refitted aircraft now accommodates a total of 471 passengers, with six private Suites and 78 Business Class seats (pictured) on the upper deck and 44 Premium Economy Class and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck. Click to enlarge.

Singapore Airlines was the first to fly the A380 in commercial service in October 2007 and today operates a fleet of 19 A380s.
