High-Flyers: Singapore Airlines Receives Boeing’s First 787-10 Dreamliner
Singapore Airlines becomes the world’s first airline to introduce the new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, a next-generation aircraft with a variety of enviable cabin products. Read on to find out the perks of travelling on this aircraft.
Be one of the first passengers to book a flight on the world’s first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Singapore Airlines has just welcomed the largest version of the aircraft to its fleet in Singapore, with an aim to redefine your experience on flights that are up to eight hours long.
Forty-nine aircraft have been ordered, but for its maiden flights in May, Singapore Airlines has chosen two routes: Singapore to Osaka and Perth. The 787-10 has been designed with the latest technology in the two on board classes: Business and Economy. With plans to invest US$350 million in the initial 20 787-10s, a whole new generation of cabin products, such as fully-flat beds, direct aisle access for all Business Class flyers, and six-way adjustable headrests in Economy Class, await travellers on board. This is a 68-metre-long aircraft, the longest variant of Boeing’s Dreamliner range, built for a more tranquil experience with 787-10 technology that allows a smoother ride and less turbulence, windows that can be dimmed electronically, and cleaner air.
REDEFINING BUSINESS CLASS TRAVEL
Each of the 36 seats in the Business Class cabin recline into 76” fully-flat beds to provide utmost comfort on the shortest of flights. The forward-facing, 1-2-1 staggered configuration ensures that each passenger gets direct aisle access without compromising the comfort of fellow passengers. The adjustable dividers between two centre seats are perfect for couples, for they can be pulled down at convenience. If you’re a business traveller, you’ll find a business panel with in-seat power supply and USB ports, an integrated reading light unit, and ample stowage space for electronic items. Sit back, relax, and enjoy world class cuisines as you view the latest in world entertainment on your personal 18’’ HD touchscreen monitor powered by Panasonic’s latest eX3 system.
UNPARALLELED IN-FLIGHT EXPERIENCES
KrisFlyer members will now be the world’s first flyers to customise and save preferences from a collection of more than 1,000 movies and TV shows on myKrisWorld for their upcoming flights.
