Our friends over at InsideFlyer Denmark were invited to be on-board Singapore Airlines’ first departure from Copenhagen to Rome recently. It is not every day that a long-haul equipped wide body aircraft (in this case an Airbus A350) from a premium carrier is used on an intra-European route, so we thought it would be fun to share the experience with UK readers too…
To mark the event, the aircraft was given the traditional ‘water salute’ when departing Copenhagen.
From the inside of the plane it looked like this:
With three separate cabins in a configuration consisting of 42 lie-flat Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy Class seats and 187 spacious Economy Class seats, passengers on board SQ352 could enjoy the great service Singapore Airlines offers on their long-haul routes – even on this short flight to Rome. There is full service for all 3 classes and that means something to eat and drink, included in the ticket price. The same goes for luggage allowance too.
We are very pleased with the warm welcome and response from the Scandinavian travelers, who have responded very positively to our new route offer between Copenhagen and Rome. As always, all fares at Singapore Airlines include 25 kilos of checked baggage and meals on-board. This means that travelers don’t need to worry about bringing their extra sandals or hiking boots and get off to a great start to their well-deserved vacation. Refreshments and inflight entertainment are of course also included.
Erwin Widjaja, General Manager Nordics for Singapore Airlines
A small event was held in the gate before the departure and in general people were just happy to see as many passengers as there were on this first departure.
We value our cooperation for more than 40 years and look forward to the extra flexibility and service that SIA offers travelers via our Nordic hub in here Copenhagen.
Senior Director of Airline Sales and Route Development, Morten Mortensen, Copenhagen Airport
The route is currently scheduled to operate 3 times a week, operated with a wide-body Airbus A350.
The cabin itself is very spacious and it always feels nicer to be on a large aircraft.
We will be sharing a full review of the Business Class experience provided on the flight soon, so watch out for that!
Are you tempted to try out this new route?
