"Singapore Airlines is a global company dedicated to providing air transportation services of the highest quality and to maximising returns for the benefit of its shareholders and employees."
Singapore Airlines has come a long way since our founding in 1972, evolving from a regional airline to one of the most respected travel brands around the world. We fly one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world to destinations spanning a network spread over five continents, with our Singapore Girl as our internationally-recognisable icon providing the high standards of care and service that customers have come to expect of us.
We have made a habit of leading the way, and along the way developed a reputation for being an industry trendsetter. Our ever-growing list of industry-leading innovations includes the following firsts:
- First to offer free headsets, a choice of meals and free drinks in Economy Class, in the 1970s
- First to introduce satellite-based inflight telephones in 1991
- First to involve a comprehensive panel of world-renowned chefs, the International Culinary Panel, in developing inflight meals in 1998
- First to offer audio and video on demand (AVOD) capabilities on KrisWorld in all classes in October 2001
- First to operate the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight between Singapore and Los Angeles in February 2004 on the A340-500, and then surpassing the record (in terms of distance) later that year with the non-stop service to New York (Newark), in June 2004
- First to fly the A380 from Singapore to Sydney on 25 October 2007
In February 2004, Singapore Airlines inaugurated its first A340-500 by setting a record for the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight from Singapore to Los Angeles. The Airline bettered the record just months later, in June 2004, when it launched the non-stop Singapore to New York (Newark) flight. ·
In October 2006, Singapore Airlines launched a comprehensive suite of new generation cabin products comprising the world’s widest First and Business Class full-flat seat products, a new Economy Class seat, and the next generation of the award-winning KrisWorld inflight entertainment system. ·
On 15 October 2007, Singapore Airlines took delivery of the world’s first A380 at the Airbus Headquarters in Toulouse. · Singapore Airlines was the first airline to operate out of Changi Airport Terminal 3 in January 2008.
The Airline currently operates out of both Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. · In May 2008, Singapore Airlines created history again by being the first carrier to operate an all-Business Class service between Asia and the USA with its launch of all-Business Class non-stop flights from Singapore to New York (Newark). Three months later, in August 2008, the Airline introduced this all-Business Class non-stop service to Los Angeles. · On 21 January 2009, Singapore Airlines received the first of 19 new A330-300 aircraft in Toulouse, France.
The aircraft is configured in a two-class layout, with 30 new Business Class seats and 255 Economy Class seats.
Singapore Airlines’ Economy Class has always captivated travellers around the world. In the 1970s, customers enjoyed many unique and value-added services that were previously unheard of, such as a choice of meals, free drinks and free headphones.
