02 November 2017 – Singapore Airlines announced today that its eagerly awaited new cabin products will be fitted to its entire Airbus A380 fleet, including retrofit work on 14 aircraft that are already in service.
The announcement was made today in Singapore at the global launch of the Airline’s new cabin products, which will start entering service next month on the first of five new A380s on order with Airbus. Retrofit work will start in late 2018 on the 14 existing A380s1 that will be fitted with the new products, with all targeted for completion in 2020.

A decade later we continue to receive highly positive feedback about the travel experience on the aircraft,” said Senior Vice President Product & Services, Mr Marvin Tan.
