From 11 May, Singapore Airlines’ daily flight between Singapore and Melbourne will be operated by an all new Airbus A350-900.
The change in aircraft means there will be an increase in Premium Economy options, with three of the four daily flights from Melbourne now offering the new cabin.
The Airbus A350 is fitted with 253 seats with 42 seats in Business class, 24 in Premium Economy class and 187 Economy class seats.
Singapore Airlines Regional vice president, Mr Tan Tiow Kor, said the deployment of the A350 on a regular basis to Melbourne from May was good news for Victorian customers.
“We have seen good demand for our Premium Economy product in Melbourne,” Mr Tan said.
“I am sure the addition of a third flight that offers our Premium Economy cabin will be warmly welcomed by customers, as will the decision to operate the A350 on a daily basis.”
