Singapore Airlines hit the Skies this May with their new Boeing 787-10 aircraft
One of the world’s leading airlines has recently unveiled their plans to extend their aircraft family by ordering 49 brand spanking new Boeing 787-10 wide body aircrafts. Although Singapore Airlines already have a great relationship with Boeing and currently fly 787-8 and 787-9 aircrafts through their subsidiary, obtaining this new ‘Dreamliner’ will score them the hat trick! This will make them the first airline to fly all three Dreamliner models!
The new Boeing 787-10 aircraft seems to score highly in all areas, not only is it 16 feet longer than its previous model (increasing its on board capacity), but it is also is said to be 10 per cent better in fuel and emissions than its competition, making both Singapore Airlines and their customers happy!
The new aircrafts will feature just two classes, 36 Business Class seats and 301 Economy, furnished with a new cabin interior that will entice you to fly.
The best features on the Business Class seats in the new aircrafts are that they convert into fully flat 76 inch beds and some seats even have an adjustable divider that can be used to increase privacy. Additional perks include the 1-2-1 configuration giving every Business class passenger direct aisle access and luxurious ‘Alcantara’ padding which is said to be also used in sports cars! Definitely in keeping with the high standards that Singapore Airlines are known for!
Economy seats on the B787-10’s also boast some lovely features, with ergonomically designed seats, six way adjustable head rests, in seat power supply and lots of storage!
Excited by the new B787-10 aircrafts? Well, you don’t have long to wait! Singapore Airlines will be commencing their new aircrafts’ services in May 2018 with two scheduled destinations, Osaka in Japan and Perth in Australia. More destinations are to follow as they increase their fleet but they will mainly be used for medium haul routes of 8 hours or more within the Asia Pacific region.
