Singapore Airlines Offers Well-grounded A380 Dining Experience
Giant-airplane-turned-restaurant is part of a suite of limited-time opportunities for die-hards who miss traveling
September 30, 2020
As other airlines take off on “flights to nowhere,” Singapore Airlines is taking a more grounded approach, launching Restaurant A380 @Changi, an exclusive dining experience inside one of the airline’s Airbus A380s, the world’s largest passenger aircraft.
Guests can choose from special menus for each cabin class, including signature international cuisine, as well as from the airline’s Peranakan menu designed by Singaporean Chef Shermay Lee.
Limited slots for an exclusive pre-launch tour of the A380 will also be available. All diners will receive KrisShop discounts, a goodie bag and additional gifts if they turn up in traditional heritage wear. Restaurant A380 @Changi will operate on Oct. 24 and 25. Reservation will be accepted starting Oct. 12.
Restaurant A380 is one of three Discover Your Singapore Airlines experiences. Over two weekends in November, Inside Singapore Airlines will offer behind-the-scenes tours of the carrier’s training facilities featuring more than 70 years of SIA’s history. Guests will get an opportunity to speak pilots and cabin crew, and find out more about the intensive training that they undergo.
There will be crafts for children and a chance to dress up as SIA cabin crew, and take home their own SIA sarong kebaya uniform. Adults can choose to operate a full flight simulator, taste some award-winning premium in-flight wines and choose from a selection of the most popular meals served onboard SIA flights. Bookings open Nov. 1, and the tours will be held on Nov. 21, 22, 28 and 29.
A third Singapore Air experience is SIA@Home to give customers a chance to enjoy an SIA in-flight dining experience in the comfort of their own home. They can choose from 10 menus featuring exclusive First Class and Business Class meals, complete with wine or champagne. Limited edition dining ware and amenities are also available depending on the package. The special cabin crew concierge service for SIA@Home bookings opens on Oct 5.
“With Covid-19 drastically reducing the number of flights operated by the SIA Group, we have created unique activities that would allow us to engage with our fans and customers during this time. These experiences offer something for everyone – from frequent flyers who miss our world-class in-cabin products and service, to couples and families who want an exclusive dining experience, and parents who are after an enjoyable activity-filled day with their children during the school holidays,” said SIA chief executive officer Mr Goh Choon Phong.
All three experiences will be exclusively available for booking via the KrisShop website. KrisFlyer members can redeem their miles to pay for these experiences or earn miles on their purchases. More information on the Discover Your Singapore Airlines experiences can be found at singaporeair.com.
