ust as it did with the Airbus A380 a decade ago, Singapore Airlines (SIA) has again chosen Sydney to debut a new product offering.

The NSW capital will be the first city to receive SIA’s new seats across all four classes to be introduced on its Airbus A380 fleet, with flights offering updated suites, business, premium economy and economy cabins due to begin on December 18.

SIA said its early evening service from Singapore to Sydney, the SQ221, as well as the lunchtime flight from Sydney to Singapore, the SQ232, would have the new products that are a result of four years of development.

The Star Alliance member and Virgin Australia partner operates up to five flights a day between Sydney and its Singapore hub.

SIA’s latest cabin products are being introduced as the airline prepares to take delivery of five new-build Airbus A380s. These will be for replacement of existing A380s, with the fleet to remain at 19 aircraft.

Sydney was SIA’s inaugural route when the Airbus A380 superjumbo made its commercial debut in October 2007.
