If Your Hotel Is on the Ground, You’re Not Flying Singapore Airlines

The carrier's new luxury suites come with visitor's quarters

From serving Michelin-starred meals to offering jet lag-free flights, Singapore Airlines has made taking in-flight amenities to new heights its schtick. Passengers aren’t complaining.

That’s why it is far from shocking that Singapore Air is the one slinging a new line of flying hotel suites that are yet again raising the bar for in-flight accommodations.

Rolling out next month on the carrier’s fleet of Airbus A380 superjumbo jets, the swanky double or single-occupancy suites feature comfortable beds, reclining leather swivel chairs, 32-inch HD touchscreens paired with noise-canceling headphones and personal wardrobes.

When not in use, the beds can be folded away to free up space so passengers can host visitors and stow-away ottomans and mood lighting are included in Singapore Air’s sweet suite package.

The airline — which also unveiled new business- and economy-class seats — says the new suites were designed to meet demand for more privacy, personal space and convenience.

“Singapore Airlines set new industry benchmarks for premium full-service travel when we introduced our first A380s in October 2007,” according to Singapore Air SVP Marvin Tan. “The introduction of our all-new cabin products is intended to ensure we retain our product leadership position. The significant investment in the new product and service offerings demonstrates that we are always listening to our customers.”

Currently serving Auckland, Beijing, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Melbourne, Mumbai, New Delhi, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Sydney and Zurich, each A380 will have six of the suites.
