SIA brings back A380 service to JFK
After a nearly two-year absence Singapore Airlines announced today the return of its A380 Superjumbo aircraft to New York’s JFK Airport from March 27, 2022, operating to Frankfurt with continuing service to Singapore.
The A380 will also debut the airline's newest First Class Suites to the U.S. market for the first time, offering semi-private cabins with expanded personal space.
“After nearly two years of restrictions, we are seeing tremendous demand for international travel, and that includes premium cabins,” said Joey Seow, Regional Vice President – Americas for Singapore Airlines in today’s announcement. “In addition to a new Business Class, we’re excited to bring our newest, most luxurious Suite cabin to U.S. travelers for the first time, offering a new standard in comfort aboard the world’s largest aircraft.”
The new Singapore Airlines A380 is configured with 471 seats in four classes: six Suites and 78 Business Class seats on the upper deck, as well as 44 Premium Economy Class and 343 Economy Class seats on the main deck. The six semi-private Suite cabins offer privacy doors, an independent swivel chair and a stand-alone bed with hotel-style evening turndown service. Four of the Suites can also be combined to form double Suites for couples travelling together. Suites passengers are offered a choice of Dom Perignon or Krug Champagnes, sleeper suits and premium amenities from Lalique, as well as meals served on fine linen and Wedgewood China.
The new Business Class seats can be combined to create fully lie-flat double beds, all forward-facing and with direct aisle access. All cabins also enjoy upscale cuisine, extensive inflight entertainment and the famous Singapore Airlines cabin crew service.
