SIA to introduce new Suites and business class in 2017

22 May 2015 by Clement Huang

Singapore Airlines (SIA) customers can look forward to a new generation of suites and business class products in 2017.

Executive vice president, commercial, Mak Swee Wah, said the new seats would be available on the next batch of A380s but declined to comment further on design details.


SIA operates a fleet of 19 superjumbos, with orders for a further five. These are slated for delivery in 2017, and will come fitted with the new products.

While little is known about the new products, Nicholas Ionides, SIA vice president, public affairs, confirmed that the next generation Suites would be “an entirely new design from the ground up”.

Business class on the A380

The airline began making minor aesthetic changes to the SIA Suites product last year, e.g. replacing the burnt orange-coloured seat with black leather to match tones seen in B777-300ER products launched in 2013 (see here).

As the launch customer of the A380, SIA introduced its existing cabin products back in 2007, making them almost a decade old. The current SIA Suites product was the work of French luxury yacht designer Jeal-Jacque Coste, while business class was devised by SIA’s long-time collaborator, JPA Design.
