The Singapore Airlines A380 is now serving New York’s JFK Airport, with the inaugural flight departing JFK, January 16th at 8:10 p.m. The world’s largest commercial aircraft introduces the industry’s only Double Suites, a private cabin equipped with a double bed for two passengers, as well as a host of enhanced seating, entertainment and dining options in every class, to travelers from the New York area.
With only two Double Suites available on each aircraft, the Singapore Airlines Suites offer the luxury of an unprecedented level of personal space inflight. Each private cabin offers a 23-inch video screen with more than 1000 on-demand entertainment options, the industry’s only choice of Dom Perignon or Krug Champagne, down duvet turndown service at bedtime, personal care amenities by Kiehl’s, and exclusive sleeper suits designed by Givenchy. Coupled with the service of Singapore Airlines’ award-winning cabin crew, SIA Suites’ dramatically generous cabin size provides customers with a luxurious travel experience in a class unlike any other. Single Suite cabins are also available for solo travelers, offering the same privacy, amenities and features.
SIA has also announced an expansion of its partnership with JetSuite, the nation’s fastest-growing private jet company, for travelers connecting to SIA A380 services at JFK. This expanded relationship enables Singapore Airlines to offer special rates on domestic and international private jet connections for travelers at airports located within 1,000 miles of JFK.
The SIA A380 superjumbo aircraft, operating as flight SQ26, is scheduled to make its maiden touchdown in New York’s JFK at 11:10 a.m. local time. The Big Apple is the tenth destination in Singapore Airlines’ network and its second point in North America, following LAX, to receive the world’s largest commercial aircraft. Singapore Airlines was the first carrier to operate the A380 in October 2007. The Singapore Airlines A380 will operate daily flights between Singapore and New York JFK (via Frankfurt) following the inaugural service. Flights from Singapore leave at 11:55pm and arrive at JFK at 11:10am. Flights from JFK leave at 8:10pm and arrive in Singapore at 6:50am two days later.
