Singapore Airlines to install lie-flat business class seats throughout its fleet
Singapore Airlines, a member of Star Alliance are planning to roll out lie-flat beds across its entire aircraft fleet, not only for long haul flights but even short flights like Singapore- Kuala Lumpur.
As part of the integration of SilkAir into the Singapore Airlines brand – SilkAir currently being the regional arm of Singapore Airlines and operated as a separate carrier – the move aims to provide consistency in business class, wherever each passenger is headed. Thompson Aero Seating will supply Singapore Airlines their new forward-facing business class seats on the new B737’s and will follow an alternating layout which will provide direct aisle access for most passengers plus some Vantage Throne seats for solo flyers. The airline plans to begin that transition process in 2020 when the first lie-flat bed is scheduled to take flight aboard a SilkAir Boeing 737 jet.
