Singapore Airlines Travel Massive Event - Something for Everyone

On October 25, 2016, Singapore Airlines hosted a Travel Massive Event at the Tiato Kitchen Market Garden in Santa Monica, CA. SIA representatives James Boyd, VP of Public Relations-Americas, and Amy Sarto, Head of Marketing Communications and Development-Americas, served as invaluable resources to gather further information about the event.

Beverages and Korean-inspired hors d’oeuvres, as well as excited chatter and the chance to view SIA cabin changes, made this an interesting and fun-filled evening. As an added bonus, SIA offered one lucky participant a free flight to Seoul and a weekend in a luxury hotel. Lots of crossed fingers in that room.

Every year, SIA sponsors a “social media meet-up,” usually timed when the airline has something special to share with the public. The current meet-up was to celebrate the launch of SIA’s second daily service on October 23, 2016 from LAX to Seoul, Korea, ending at their hub destination, Changi Airport in Singapore. This new daily service, SQ7, departs Los Angeles at 5:15 p.m., arrives in Seoul at 10:30 p.m., and, after a brief layover, terminates in Singapore at 6:55 a.m. (two days after the LAX departure).

 SQ7 passengers fly on the Boeing 777-300 extended range aircraft, which seats 264 and is equipped with four cabins to accommodate their Economy Class, Premium Economy Class, Business Class, and First Class passengers. As you might expect, amenities – and prices – increase up the class ladder starting at approximately $850 (depending on special dates, offers, and season).  The airline is especially proud to introduce their new and luxurious First Class, designed by Los Angeles-based BMW Design Works.

Launched simultaneously with SQ7 is SIA’s resumption of its nonstop flights from the U.S after a hiatus of three years. On October 23, 2016, SIA also launched SQ31, a nonstop flight from San Francisco, CA to Singapore. The SQ31 flies on a new Airbus A 350-900 aircraft. Updates include an air filtration system which replaces cabin air every two to three minutes, higher cabin pressure useful in reducing jet lag, and greater fuel efficiency due to light-weight materials and a very aerodynamic design. Clearly, it sounds as if the future is upon us. In 2018, SIA is planning to increase nonstop flights to Singapore originating in Los Angeles and New York. Singapore Airlines has a clear vision of the future and wants all of us to join them. In keeping with what’s happening in the world, SIA wants to be sure that social media are ready and willing to share their dream.

The Travel Massive Event also featured SIA’s new business class seats - the widest in the sky - which allow ample comfort at the optimal pitch of 51 inches – and, on top of that, recline into a full flat bed. With perks too numerous to mention, these seats offer maximum comfort and make traveling long distances a breeze. If luxury and comfort are important to you, you’ll love these luxurious, buttery smooth seats.

As the world’s most awarded airline, Singapore Airlines is bringing the latest updates in flight design and comfort and wants everyone to appreciate how true luxury feels. Let’s hope that you get to sample SIA’s newest offerings in the very near future.
