The WOW factor

5 reasons to fly with Singapore Airlines

Emma Healy November 23, 2018

Your journey to and from your chosen destination is an important part of creating the perfect holiday, and Singapore Airlines can be relied upon to make your flight flawless.

With flights from the UK, via Singapore, to some of the most popular destinations in the Philippines, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the USA, Singapore Airlines will take your getaway to the next level. You’ll experience an array of features and benefits which guarantee comfort and relaxation throughout your journey – here’s five reasons why you’ll love this multi-award-winning airline:

1. Impeccable service

With customer service at its core, Singapore Airlines is proud to offer an onboard experience that stands out for all the right reasons.

Whether you opt for Business Class or Premium Economy, across every cabin type, you’ll experience seamless intuitive, friendly service with a personal touch.

New recruits receive a four-month training – twice as long as the industry average – which spans every aspect of service, from meals and making wine recommendations to cultural sensitivity toward travellers from different countries. 

Worn with pride, even the crew’s uniform is exceptional and distinctive, having been designed by Parisian fashion designer, Pierre Balmain, and featuring a sarong kebaya crafted from Asian batik fabric.

2. Space to relax and unwind

Singapore Airlines’ Premium Economy service offers a truly luxurious experience. Cabins are configured in a 2-4-2 layout which – although less economical for the airline – provides a sense of increased space and a greater width, per passenger, of up to 19.5 inches for added comfort.

Seats have a built-in calf-rest and foot-rest and can be reclined by up to eight inches; in addition, if you choose not to sleep, your seat has two USB ports, an adjustable reading lamp, and the ports and power supplies for your electronic devices.

3. World-class in-flight cuisine

The menu aboard a Singapore Airlines Premium Economy flight is a cut above the rest. With true international flair, courtesy of menus created by eight world-renowned chefs, you’ll choose from an array of tantalising options including lobster Thermidor, pad Thai, or sirloin steak, paired with Champagne or wine from an expertly composed list.

4. Free stopovers in Singapore

With Changi Airport as the airline’s hub – and the majority of flights stopping here - you’ll have the opportunity to break up your journey and extend your trip with an exciting little Singapore stopover.

Changi Airport really is like a destination in itself: whatever you want to take from your time in the airport, Changi delivers. The airport offers a combination of stylish designer retailers and world cuisine, along with restful gardens (complete with koi pond and butterfly garden), deluxe lounges, cinema, gaming zone, and play areas for children – it feels as though every type of traveller has been considered, even if they’re only here for a few hours.

Take longer in Singapore and explore this sparkling sovereign state, your eyes ricocheting from views of soaring skyscrapers and bustling people to green spaces and serene botanical havens. Shop, eat, and soak up the culture of Singapore. 

5. Connecting excellent destinations

Singapore Airlines offers flights between a number of spectacular far-flung destinations, allowing us to tailor make your perfect multi centre holiday: from Singapore you’ll have the option of more than 100 destinations in over 30 countries.

How about contrasting Singapore and Bali? Fly directly from the UK to Singapore (via one of four daily flights from London, or five weekly flights from Manchester) and soak up the atmosphere in this vibrant island country. A two hour flight will take you to barefoot paradise in laid-back Bali, for a retreat of turquoise waters lapping at white sand beaches, ancient temples, and stunning sunsets.

Singapore Airlines also offers a non-stop flight from Singapore to Los Angeles and from Manchester to Houston, Texas, which opens up many more options for global discovery.
