Singapores "Presidential" all-new cabin
They previewed the prototype of their new A380 cabins, early last month.
But Singapore Airlines opened the doors to the real thing, last week, after the first of its brand new fleet landed in Changi Airport.
Fresh from a 13-hour flight, the sparkling Airbus A380 touched down at 10am GMT+8 after completing its maiden voyage from the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse, France.
The aircraft is the first of five new A380s ordered from Airbus, and the first to feature all-new cabin products.
Capping the end of a huge $850 million upgrade for the commercial carrier, the plane's arrival was marked with a greeting ceremony, which allowed by aviation fans and industry figures inside for a sneak peek.
On board, they got to view the stunning new suites, and include double beds for maximum comfort.
Each aircraft has six suites tucked into the front cabin of the upper deck, and they are more akin to five-star hotel digs than airline seats.
Singapore Airlines describes them as a ‘personal oasis complete with lavish furnishing and finishes’.
Each suite is furnished with a separate full-flat bed with adjustable recline and plush leather chair, enabling customers to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest in bed without the need to convert the bed from a sitting position.
Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong, who was at Changi Airport to welcome the aircraft, said: 'The Airbus A380 is a favorite among our customers and we are especially proud to be taking the travel experience to the next level with our new cabin products.
