Nearly 120 years has passed since the first ever flight by the Wright Brothers in 1903 and the fascination that followed with flying continues today. Modern, comfortable aircraft and more destinations to travel to has made the world feel smaller and brought more people together as the fascination with air travel continues to grow.
Fast forward over a century later, air travel is no longer a rare commodity, with millennials averaging 7.4 flights a year while an average business traveller takes 6.8 flights a year. The excitement and novelty of travelling 30,000 feet in the air may be wearing off, but that does not stop Singapore Airlines, the world’s most awarded airline in the world, from keeping the wanderlust flying high.
Why They Are the Number One Airline in The World
Singapore Airlines aim to take you on a journey, a journey that will transform your very concept of what it is to fly and what it is to be valued. For nearly a quarter of a century now, Singapore Airlines knows that travel isn’t just about getting their customers from A to B. It’s about getting them to a state of mind that is based on contentment and satisfaction. When you travel with Singapore Airlines, you feel you are getting above and beyond what you expected and beyond what others are getting, it’s an ethos that keeps winning them awards – Best Airline in the World, Best First Class and Best Business Class in Asia, Best First Class Seat in the world, and more in the recent Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards 2019.
The Cabin Crew
Singapore Airlines cabin crew undergo 14 weeks of intensive training, the longest crew training programme in the industry. Even in the digital age of automation, nothing can replace the personal, warm service of a crew – especially when you’re flying home after an intense business meeting. It is no wonder Singapore Airlines was awarded World’s Best Cabin Crew at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2019. Nonetheless, the airline embraces and continuously invests in technology – not to replace its people but to elevate their legendary service.
