Toulouse, 11th April 2018 – STELIA Aerospace has been selected by world-leading carrier Singapore Airlines to develop a bespoke Business Class seat for its new Boeing 787-10 fleet.
The new B787-10 fleet of Singapore Airlines is configured with 337 seats in two classes, featuring 36 Business Class seats and 301 Economy Class seats. The new Business Class seat has been developed by STELIA Aerospace specifically for Singapore Airlines, focusing on ensuring the best passenger experience.
14 customised features have been developed in partnership to meet passenger expectations and this new Business Class seat offers many enhancements, providing customers with more comfort during flight:
- Full-flat 76” long beds
- A generous seat pitch of 44” and a 20” seat width (up to 26” when retracting the armrests)
- Regular-shaped footwell (height 12”, opening width 16”, depth 25.5”)
- Adjustable dividers between alternate rows of centre seats (full-height and mid-height) to customise the level of privacy
- Lowerable armrests.
Other thoughtful features include more stowage space, integrated reading lights and a large meal table. The interior trimmings of each seat have also been given a touch of luxury with Alcantara padding, a material used to fit the interiors of sports cars, providing a natural cabin noise cancellation and consequently enhancing the “cocoon” effect.
In terms of in-flight entertainment, Business Class passengers enjoy a more personalised and interactive KrisWorld experience, on an 18” full high-definition touchscreen monitor.
In addition, all Business Class customers enjoy the convenience of direct aisle access.
Thierry KANENGIESER, VP Cabin Interior, STELIA Aerospace, said: “This new Business Class bespoke seat has been closely developed for months with Singapore Airlines as their best in class, world leading, new business class seat. Singapore Airlines is well known for setting the industry standards and this seat includes features that ensure passenger comfort for medium or long haul. We are very involved in customising to meet our customer’s needs and expectations, and this new bespoke seat offers high comfort level combined with modern styling”.
