A premium full service carrier and the world’s most awarded airline, Singapore Airlines is one of the best options for UK travellers flying to the Asia-Pacific region. The airline is known for its superior yet friendly inflight service, providing customers with a home in the sky each time they fly.
With its hub being the multi-award-winning Changi Airport, flight sector lengths are optimised for UK travellers getting rest on connecting flights to their final destination. This region is the airline’s heartland, with Singapore Airlines and its partner airlines, SilkAir and Scoot, currently operating a network spanning 138 destinations in 37 countries; many of which are Asia-Pacific destinations.
In the UK, Singapore Airlines flies from both London Heathrow and Manchester Airports, operating the newest aircraft types within the fleet. London Heathrow offers four flights daily and includes services operated by the newest A380s featuring all-new cabin products. From Manchester, Singapore Airlines flies five times a week to both Singapore and Houston, operating the modern A350 aircraft.
All aircraft departing the UK feature Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class seating, while flights from London also feature First Class or Suites, depending on whether they are operated by A380 or Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. Whichever cabin customers fly, they can expect a high standard of care and service, which is epitomised by the airline’s iconic Singapore Girl in her distinctive sarong kebaya uniform designed by Pierre Balmain 50 years ago. From a generous 32” seat pitch and cabin layout in economy, to champagne served in premium economy, a Book the Cook meal pre-order service for all cabins except economy and state-of-the-art inflight entertainment systems throughout, customers can look forward to a comfortable journey. Plus, customers departing London in First or Business Class can enjoy the airline’s popular SilverKris Lounge facilities in Terminal 2B.
During its 70-year history, the airline has developed a reputation for innovation, including being first to fly the iconic A380 in 2007 and, more recently, being first to fly the Boeing Dreamliner 787-10. The latest addition to the airline’s regional fleet introduces brand new cabin products, including fully lie-flat business class seating on its shortest flights for the first time. Already operating to Osaka, Japan and Perth, Australia and Bali, Indonesia, more Asia-Pacific destinations of up to eight hours from Singapore will gradually be announced.
Meanwhile, the airline’s A350 aircraft also continue to fly to new destinations, with Christchurch, New Zealand, being the latest to receive the upgraded product. It means the Christchurch route will feature a premium economy cabin for the first time, benefitting UK and European consumers who can now fly the full distance in the same cabin class.
In addition to its own extensive network, Singapore Airlines partners with a number of other airlines to further expand accessibility to some of the region’s best destinations. Partners currently include other Star Alliance carriers, Air New Zealand, Virgin Australia and Fiji Airways to further ensure Singapore Airlines remains one of the best ways to fly when visiting anywhere across the Asia-Pacific region.
