    Singapore Airlines A350XWB Will Feature Thales Avant IFE and High-Speed Wi-Fi

    Thales’ AVANT Android based system offers a flexible architecture which allows Singapore Airlines to constantly introduce and easily integrate the latest apps their customers demand.

    The fleet will be equipped with Thales latest AVANT monitors, which are the most lightweight ever deployed in the market, and feature full high-definition video and an integrated Avii, Thales’ most modern Android smartphone-like touch controller, in premium cabins. Navigating menus with Avii is intuitive and the device can act as a second screen so passengers can, for example, watch a film on the big screen while playing one of the game apps on the handset or monitoring the flight map.

    Why SIA’s A380 Premium Economy is Taking Longer to Install than Planned

      Singapore Airlines will delay the launch of some of its highly anticipated Premium Economy (PEY) launch on some A380 aircraft because of installation delays which double the lead-time to completion from 7 days to around 14, the airline confirms.

      “We had expected to have seven retrofitted A380s in service by now but at present we have three serving Sydney, Hong Kong and London routes. The original plan was for all 19 to be completed in the first quarter of 2016 (calendar year), but this has now shifted to the second quarter,” an airline spokesperson tells Flight Chic.

      A Well-Timed Stitch Reveals the Quality of Singapore Airlines’ New Premium Economy

      Singapore Airlines’ new Premium Economy cabin, revealed last week, has many attractive features to offer customers, both in the hard product and in its soft offerings and the quality of this product is best reflected in the skilled timing of its stitches.

       Having seen the seats when they were revealed by Singapore Airlines I can say that, from an aircraft interiors design perspective, the perfection of details–even down to the accuracy and measure of the stitching pattern that decorates the new seats–best reflects the quality and longevity of Singapore Airlines’ newest product.

      In collaboration with its design firm JPA Design, London, Singapore Airlines customised the same ZIM Flugsitz seat that Lufthansa selected for its new Premium Economy cabin. But the designer and the airline have proven that by adding custom fittings, elegant trim and master tailoring one can clearly differentiate a baseline seat structure.
