Business-class seats are manufactured by Stelia Aerospace and are arranged in a forward-facing 1-2-1 staggered configuration. Each seat will recline directly into a 76” fully-flat bed, giving passengers enough space, storage options and comfort, even while travelling on the shortest routes.

Economy class seats are designed and built by RECARO. Seats are arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration and have an ergonomically-designed contour backrest that provides greater comfort, with a six-way adjustable headrest with foldable wings to provide more neck support.

All customers on the new 787-10s will also have control over their inflight entertainment (IFE) experience through myKrisWorld. 

The new 787-10s will also be equipped with inflight wifi supported by Panasonic’s Global Communication Services and GSM phone services provided by Panasonic’s wholly-owned subsidiary Aeromobile.

David Lim, general manager India, Singapore Airlines said, “Singapore Airlines is delighted to start services on this latest generation aircraft to Chennai. In line with our commitment to product and service excellence, the comfort of the Boeing 787-10 combined with our award-winning inflight service will provide Indian customers with unparalleled travel experience.”
