The first of Singapore Airlines’ refitted Boeing 777-200ER aircraft flew from Singapore to Amsterdam today, drawing a warm reception from customers. At an arrival welcome event held at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on 14 Jan, trade press corporate customers and agents alike gave a thumbs-up to the refitted cabin products.
In Business Class, the richly upholstered leather seat reclines up to 125 degrees and unfolds into a 76-inch full-flat bed, providing greater space and comfort. Also featured on the Airline’s Airbus A340-500, A380-800 and B777-300ER fleets, the forward-facing, four-abreast 1-2-1 configuration offers all customers direct access to the aisle. The award-winning KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system features a 15.4-inch LCD monitor and an extensive selection of audio and video programmes.
To be extended to a further nine B777-200ER aircraft, the cost of this cabin upgrade programme is valued at nearly SGD$95 million.
Upgraded B777-200ERs will be deployed to more destinations in Europe and to points in India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand as additional aircraft are refitted.
