Singapore Airlines announces the launch of Boeing 787-10 services to India


Singapore Airlines (SIA) is pleased to announce the introduction of
its Boeing 787-10 services to India. It was the world’s first airline to take delivery of Boeing’s newest Dreamliner variant in March 2018 and will also be the “first to fly” it to India. The inaugural Boeing 787-10 service will depart from Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi at 0955 hours on 28 October 2018. The daily scheduled flight SQ401/402 will be served by this new aircraft while the daily scheduled evening flight SQ403/406 will continue to operate on the Airbus A380 aircraft.

Constructed using lightweight composite materials, the 68-metre 787-10 is the longest variant of Boeing’s Dreamliner range of aircraft. With exceptional operating efficiency and advanced
technology, the newest addition to the Airline’s fleet is designed to offer a more tranquil cabin experience. Customers can look forward to customisable lighting preferences with large electronically dimmable windows, cleaner air, and a quieter and smoother ride.
SIA is the largest customer for the 787-10, with firm orders for 49 of the type. It is fitted with the next generation of regional cabin products which is redefining air travel for flights up to eight hours. The 787-10s are configured with 337 seats in two classes, featuring 36 Business Class seats and 301 Economy Class seats. SIA invested US$350 million in the introduction of the new regional cabin products on an initial 20 787-10s. The cabin products feature fully-flat beds and direct aisle access for all Business Class customers, ergonomically-designed contour backrests with six-way adjustable headrests in Economy Class, and personalised in-flight entertainment (IFE) experience for all customers through myKrisWorld.


Business Class
Manufactured by Stelia Aerospace, the new regional Business Class seats on the 787-10s are arranged in a forward-facing 1-2-1 staggered configuration to provide every customer direct
aisle access. Each seat measures up to 26” in width with retractable armrests that can be raised and lowered. Whether travelling alone or with a partner, adjustable dividers at the centre seats provide for a customised level of privacy to suit individual preferences. With each seat able to recline directly into a 76” fully-flat bed, Business Class customers can rest in more comfort, even on the shortest flights. Customers will have more options to relax in their seat while being entertained by KrisWorld, SIA’s award-winning in-flight
entertainment system, on their personal 18” full high-definition touchscreen monitor, powered by Panasonic’s latest eX3 system.
Customers can also look forward to other features to enhance their travelling experience, such as ample stowage space for personal items, a business panel with in-seat power supply and USB ports, and integrated reading light unit with adjustable lighting intensity.

Economy Class
Designed and built by RECARO, the new Economy Class seat also offers an enhanced in- flight experience. Arranged in a 3-3-3 configuration, each of the 301 Economy Class seats on the new 787-10s has an ergonomically-designed contour backrest that provides greater comfort, with a six-way adjustable headrest with foldable wings to provide more neck support. Economy Class customers can also enjoy an enhanced entertainment experience on their personal 11.6” full high-definition touchscreen monitor, as they browse from the selection of more than 1,000 movies, TV shows, audio programmes and games on KrisWorld. Other features that Economy Class customers can look forward to include personal storage space for small personal items, a coat hook, USB port and in-seat power supply.

In-Flight Entertainment Experience
All customers on the new 787-10s will also have greater control over their in-flight entertainment (IFE) experience through myKrisWorld, allowing for world-first IFE personalisation. Features of myKrisWorld include content recommendations based on customer preferences and viewing history, and KrisFlyer members being able to bookmark and resume content, as well as customise and save preferences for subsequent flights. SIA is also the first airline in the world to offer a series of games from Toca Boca and Sago Mini on KrisWorld. Initially available on the 787-10s, this popular entertainment option will progressively be made available on other aircraft types in the Airline’s fleet. The new 787-10s will also be equipped with in-flight WiFi supported by Panasonic’s Global Communication Services and GSM phone services provided by Panasonic’s wholly owned subsidiary Aeromobile.

“In line with our commitment to product and service leadership; our endeavor is to provide Indian travelers with an unparalleled travel experience. The Boeing 787-10 aircraft offers the product comfort of long-haul flights even on our short-to-medium haul sectors,” said
Singapore Airlines General Manager India, Mr. David Lim.
