From October, 2015, customers travelling on flights from Singapore to Delhi and Mumbai will have the chance to experience the services of the carrier’s new cabin class – Premium Economy.
Singapore Airlines will shortly introduce a new cabin class – Premium Economy – on its flights to Delhi and Mumbai. On Singapore-Delhi flights, the new cabin will be available from October 13, whereas for the Mumbai route, the airline will offer premium economy seats from October 21.
Select flights to Sydney, however, will be the first ones to feature the new cabin class. On Singapore-Sydney flights, Premium Economy will be available from August 9; the bookings for the same are already open, as per their press release.
The Premium Economy on India routes will be available on Airbus 380; the aircraft currently operates on Delhi and Mumbai routes.
Singapore Airlines has plans in place to introduce the new cabin class on several other sectors. Flights to cities like Beijing, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, London, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo and Zurich will gradually have the option of the new travel class.
“We have been heartened by the highly positive public reaction to our new Premium Economy Class since our plans were announced last year,” said Singapore Airlines’ CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.
“Many of our customers’ suggestions have been incorporated into the new product, and we are confident it will be well received by travellers who are looking for more features – in the seat design, in-flight offerings and exclusive privileges – all underpinned by the exceptional service that SIA is well known for, both on the ground and in the air,” he added.
Singapore Airlines was the first carrier to operate the jumbo A380 aircraft to India. SIA, along with its low-cost wing SilkAir, runs more than 90 weekly flights from 11 key Indian cities, including New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Hyderabad, Coimbatore, Visakhapatnam, and Thiruvananthapuram.
