Passengers flying to Adelaide from Singapore can soon travel on the new Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft. Singapore Airlines (SIA) has slated Adelaide as its launch destination, with daily operations set to commence on 17 December 2018.
The Airbus A350-900 features a host of improved features, including higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra-wide body for greater comfort and lighting designed to reduce jetlag. The aircraft will be fitted with 303 seats across two classes, with 40 seats in Business Class and 263 seats in Economy Class.
Business class seats are arranged in a forward-facing 1-2-1 staggered configuration to provide each passenger with direct aisle access, and each seat reclines into a 76” fully flat bed. Economy class seats have an ergonomically designed backrest and a six-way adjustable headrest with foldable wings for better support.
All passengers will have access to the latest Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system, which includes a new user interface that offers a more intuitive experience and navigation options. Furthermore, KrisFlyer members and Business Class customers aboard the Airbus A350-900 will have access to additional inflight entertainment content choices.
Following its maiden route to Adelaide, the Airbus A350-900 will be deployed to Brisbane next year, subject to regulatory approval.
