Singapore Airlines’ Airbus A330-300 aircraft, featuring the Airline’s latest product and service offerings, will soon operate on selected routes serving the Middle East, West Asia and North Asia.
From 28/29 March 2010, the Airline will commence A330-300 services to Abu Dhabi, Jeddah and Kuwait (the latter two points via Abu Dhabi) as well as Male. From 28 April, A330-300s will be deployed to Fukuoka and Taipei, and from 1 May the aircraft will serve Colombo.
The services will replace the Airline’s Boeing 777 operations on the routes. Detailed schedules are listed in the Annex.
A330-300 aircraft will also be progressively deployed on other regional and medium-haul routes later this year as part of Singapore Airlines’ ongoing product enhancement efforts.
The Airline currently operates A330-300 services to and from three Australian cities, namely Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, and two Japanese cities, namely Nagoya and Osaka.
The Singapore Airlines A330-300 is configured in a two-class layout with 30 Business Class and 255 Economy Class seats.
The Business Class cabin is laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration featuring a new seat specially designed for regional and medium-haul routes. The seat converts to an incline lie-flat bed and offers enhanced levels of comfort, privacy and functionality.
The Economy Class cabin is laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration. Featured are the new-generation Singapore Airlines Economy Class seats, currently also available on the Airline’s Airbus A380 and B777-300ER aircraft. They are ergonomically designed to provide customers an unsurpassed level of comfort, with more personal space and increased legroom.
All seats feature the new KrisWorld, Singapore Airlines’ award-winning inflight entertainment system, and in a world first, iPod and iPhone connectivity in every seat, including Economy Class.
Singapore Airlines currently has nine A330-300s, with another 10 due to be delivered by the end of this year.
