Today is the day Singapore Airlines kicks off flying its first Premium Economy Class cabin from Sydney International Airport.
Off the back of a two-year development program and an investment of roughly US$80 million, the new cabin welcomes travellers with a fresh, contemporary design, along with a range of in-flight offerings.
Sydney is the first destination that will fly the Premium Economy Class, which boasts seats of 18.5 or 19.5 inches in width, depending on aircraft type, and with an 8-inch recline and a seat pitch of 38 inches.
Together with active noise-cancelling headphones and a sleek 13.3-inch full HD monitor – the largest in its class – customers can look forward to an enhanced in-flight entertainment experience.
Other features include a full leather finishing, calf-rest and foot-bar for every seat, individual in-seat power supply, two USB ports, personal in-seat reading light, cocktail table, and more stowage space for personal items.
Premium Economy Class provides an extensive range of food and beverage offerings, which includes the Premium Economy Book the Cook service, enabling advanced ordering of a selection of main courses.
