Singapore Airlines upgrades Christchurch daily services – Singapore Airlines is delighted to announce that its daily service from Christchurch to Singapore will be operated by a refitted 777-200ER from 9 February 2014. The upgraded seats and cabin interiors form part of NZ$94.4 million investment programme to provide customers with additional space and comfort as well as consistency across Singapore Airlines’ long haul fleet.
In Business Class, the richly upholstered leather seat reclines up to 125 degrees and unfolds into a 76-inch full-flat bed. Also featured on the airline’s A380 and 777-300ER fleets, the forward-facing, four-abreast 1-2-1 configuration offers all customers direct access to the aisle. The award-winning KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system also features a 15.4-inch LCD monitor and an extensive selection of audio and video programmes.
In Economy Class, personal LCD monitors will be upgraded to 9 inches from 6.5 inches. Seat covers, designed by Givenchy, will also feature soothing colours as well as richer and softer fabrics, similar to those found on Singapore Airlines’ A380s and 777-300ERs.
Edwin Chiang, Singapore Airline’s General Manager New Zealand, said this cabin upgrade reaffirms the airline’s significant commitment to Christchurch.
