Singapore Airlines will deploy its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, with new cabin products, on routes within Asia and Europe, in addition to the USA.

The aircraft will be delivered progressively from November, and will enter commercial service on the Singapore-Paris route in early December 2006.

All new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will be fitted with Singapore Airlines’ new range of cabin products with increased levels of comfort, including the largest First and Business Class seats with fully flat beds, a more spacious Economy Class, and an enhanced KrisWorld inflight entertainment system featuring over 1000 options, plus a suite of office applications.

The deployment of the new Boeing 777-300ER from December 2006 to mid-2007 will be as follows:

Month Between … Frequency
December 2006 Singapore – Paris Daily
Singapore – Hong Kong Once daily (SQ862/861)
Singapore – Milan – Barcelona 3 times weekly
January 2007 Singapore – Zurich Daily
March 2007 Singapore – Seoul – San Francisco Daily
May 2007 Singapore – Frankfurt Once daily (SQ326/325)

Further announcements about deployment of the aircraft beyond mid-2007 will be made in due course.

Mr Sak-Hin Chin, General Manager New Zealand, said the schedules will extend the reach of the airline’s new cabin products to other regions within six months.

“We’re very proud of the products we have developed for the new Boeing 777-300ER. They set the highest standards for our customers, and we are deploying them as quickly as possible across key regions in our network to allow customers to take advantage of them.”

“The flights we have chosen are popular with our business customers, who will welcome the extra comfort features, space and privacy of our new Business and First Class.”

“Our Economy Class customers will also notice the improvement in seat design, creating more room, as well as features which make the journey much more comfortable for them,” added Mr Chin.
