Singapore the world’s best airline in 2019. Innovation, new product and world-renowned inflight service have combined to give Singapore Airlines the prestigious AirlineRatings.com 2019 Airline of the Year award.
From the world’s longest route to revamped cabins and apps that allow frequent flyers to save entertainment preferences and spend points at local businesses, Singapore has emerged an industry leader.
The airline has launched new aircraft variants such as the Airbus A350-900ULR, now flying non-stop between Singapore and New York in a premium seating configuration, and the Boeing 787-10 as part of a strategy to maintain a young and efficient fleet.
It is spending millions to revamp aircraft cabins with a new product that includes a beautiful A380 first class product and new regional and long-haul business class suites.
The airline also took out the prestigious First Class award for its impressive Suites product.
The six Suites in this stylish cabin at the front of the upper deck of the airline’s flagship Airbus A380s are designed to be the equivalent of small hotel rooms.
The spacious Suites offer privacy with sliding doors, a massive swivel armchair, a 32 -inch touchscreen monitor that can also be swiveled and a separate foldout flatbed measuring 76 inches by 27 inches.
The suites come with plenty of storage, and the cabin is served by two well-appointed and roomy bathrooms, one of which sports a vanity/dressing area.
A similar thought has also been given to seats in the airline’s business, premium economy, and economy cabins.
Even the airline’s new regional business class suite reclines into a fully-flat bed with direct aisle access from every seat and ample storage to stow laptops and accessories.
Its Singapore Girl branding is among the best known in modern aviation and has become synonymous with inflight excellence.
“In our objective analysis Singapore Airlines came out number one in many of our audit criteria, which is a great performance,” AirlineRatings editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas said
“For years Singapore Airlines has been the gold standard, and now it is back to its best leading in passenger innovations and new state-of-the-art aircraft models.”
