From March 28, A330-300s will serve Abu Dhabi and Jeddha and Kuwait (via Abu Dhabi) as well as Male. From April 28, these will also be put on Fukuoka and Taipei services, and from May, the aircraft will used for Colombo.
These A330s replace the currently used Boeing B777s. They feature SIA’s latest products in Business Class such as the inclined lie-flat beds laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration and fewer seats in this cabin. In Economy Class, passengers enjoy an enhanced IFE that holds six times more movies than in the B777, larger screens, more legroom and iPod and iPhone connectors. Lavatories onboard are also wheelchair friendly.
A330-300 services are also found on services to and from three Australian cities namely Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, and two Japanese cities Nagoya and Osaka.
More of this enhanced aircraft will be progressively rolled out on other regional and medium-haul routes as part of SIA’s continuing efforts to raise the bar on customer service.
