Singapore Airlines adds another Airbus A350 to Perth

By David Flynn, June 3 2019

Singapore Airlines is continuing its rolling upgrade of flights to Australia, with Perth set to see a second Airbus A350 from July 1, 2019.

The advanced jet, which boasts Singapore Airlines' latest flat-bed regional business class seats in what the airline calls a 'medium-range' configuration, will slot into daily flights SQ214 (departing Perth at 5.10pm) and SQ223 (wheels up from Singapore at 9.30am).

SQ226/SQ213 already hosts an A350, with a Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner rostered onto SQ216/SQ215.

This leaves just one daily flight on the Star Alliance member's older Airbus A330, and its days are surely numbered.

The Airbus A350's 40 business class seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 layout, providing every passenger with direct aisle access, with access to inflight WiFi if you need to work rather than rest – or luxuriate over your Book the Cook meal – on the quick five-hour hop.

AusBT review: Singapore Airlines' new regional business class

Singapore Airlines intends to roll out lie-flat beds across its entire fleet from 2020, from the longest of globe-spanning trips to short hops such as Singapore-Kuala Lumpur on SilkAir, which will be adopting new flat-bed business class seats on its factory-fresh Boeing 737s.

this is good news.i might consider this for my next trip to singapore.adelaide to perth on virgin australia and connect onto the sq214 and go nonstop coming home which is the sq279 on the same kind of plane.the departure time ex adelaide if i am only going as far as singapore is a deal breaker in why i am choosing my routing.
