SIA plans US$325 million upgrade for 19 B777-300ERs

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is investing US$325 million to upgrade 19 Boeing 777-300ERs in its fleet, installing onto them the latest generation of cabin products that were unveiled last year (see story). They were the result of two years of development with design firms including BMW Group Designworks USA and James Park Associates.

The new seats and inflight entertainment (IFE) debuted last October in London, when the airline welcomed guests onboard a newly delivered Boeing 777-300ER at LHR Terminal 3 (see story). The aircraft was one of the eight new jetliners confirmed to offer the upgraded cabins, but this latest investment programme will see the airline's entire B777-300ER fleet offering the revamped inflight experience.

Installation work is scheduled to commence in early 2015, with completion expected for September 2016. “Feedback about our next generation cabin products has been extremely positive and our customers have been asking for them to be fitted on more aircraft. We have listened,” said SIA executive vice-president commercial Mak Swee Wah.

The new cabin products are currently available on some of the daily services to London Heathrow and Tokyo Narita.
