Singapore Airlines has unveiled new first-class suites for its Airbus A380 fleet. The revamped, first-class cabins are reduced down to six suites from 12 and according to SIA, this is to give a sense of “exclusivity and intimate privacy.”
Behind its artistically-designed sliding door lies 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. For couples traveling together, the beds in the first two Suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed. When not in use, the bed can be stowed completely, creating even more personal space within each Suite.
Each seat is upholstered by world-renowned Poltrona Frau in fine leather and is fully adjustable using an electronic control side panel which can accommodate a variety of sitting and lounging positions. The swivel capability of the chair (between 135 and 270 degrees) with recline up to 45 degrees provides added flexibility for dining and relaxation.
Each Suite also has a 32-inch full HD monitor that can swivel for the different viewing angles in seat and bed modes, a full-sized personal wardrobe, customised handbag stowage compartment, amenity box lined with soft leather, specially designed carpet and a feature wall with mood lighting – all exquisitely crafted to give a touch of luxury and intimacy.The exclusivity of the Suites cabin is further accentuated by its two stylishly-furnished lavatories, one of which has a sit-down vanity counter.
Singapore Airlines revealed the update on Thursday, offering a first look at the new Singapore Airline Suites, the first of which will be available to passengers flying on the Singapore-Sydney routes later next month. The new suites were designed by Pierrejean Design Studio and manufactured by Zodiac Seats UK.
