SIA uses new A330-300 on Brisbane route

31 Mar 2009

Singapore Airlines is now flying its new Airbus A330-300 aircraft, using the Singapore-Brisbane route to showcase the innovation and mark the 25th anniversary of operations to the Australian gateway.

The aircraft is configured in a two-class layout, with 30 new Business Class seats and 255 Economy Class seats. Progressively, the product will be introduced between Singapore and other cities in Australia (Adelaide and Perth), followed by Japan (Nagoya and Osaka).

This aircraft type has been especially designed for regional and medium-haul routes, offering enhanced levels of comfort, privacy and functionality. The seat converts to an incline lie-flat bed. The cabin is laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration (distinct from the existing Boeing B777 on these routes, which is in a 2-3-2 layout).

Economy Class features 255 seats, in a 2-4-2 configuration. These are the new generation SIA Economy Class seats, also available on the Singapore Airlines Boeing B777-300ER and A380 aircraft. Ergonomically designed, these provide customers with improved comfort, more personal space and increased legroom.

The A330-300 also offers iPod and iPhone connectivity in every seat, including Economy Class, a first for any airline.
