SIA to debut A350-900 on Singapore-Adelaide

Singapore Airlines has announced Adelaide as the launch destination for its new Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft.

Singapore Airlines has announced Adelaide as the launch destination for its new Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft. Slated to commence daily operations on 17th December, the new A350-900 will operate as SQ279 from Singapore to Adelaide, and return as SQ278, from Adelaide to Singapore, subject to regulatory approval.

The A350-900 will be fitted with 303 seats across two classes, with 40 seats in Business Class and 263 seats in Economy Class. The Business Class cabin features a 1-2-1 seat arrangement, providing every passenger with direct aisle access, while the Economy Class cabin will be arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration.

The aircraft will be fitted with the latest Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system, designed with a new user interface that offers a more intuitive user experience and navigation options. Passengers will also have access to high-speed in-flight WiFi service. The aircraft will be equipped with Inmarsat GX Aviation’s broadband connectivity system, offered through SITAONAIR.

Following Adelaide, the A350-900 medium haul aircraft will also be deployed to Brisbane next year, subject to regulatory approval.

The new Business Class seats, manufactured by Stelia Aerospace, can recline directly into full-flat beds. The new Economy Class seat has been designed and built by RECARO and also offers passengers an enhanced in-flight experience with 11.6” full high-definition touchscreen monitors.

Singapore Airlines ordered a total of 67 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, 21 of which are already in the fleet and have been fitted with Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class, long-haul cabin products.

In October this year Singapore Airlines will launch the world’s first A350-900 Ultra Long Range (ULR), re-starting non-stop flights between Singapore and Newark. The ULR aircraft will be fitted with 67 Business Class seats and 94 Premium Economy Class seats.
