British Airways celebrates 15 years of premium cabin service in Singapore


British Airways had announced on 29 Jun 2015 announced special fares for its customers in Singapore to celebrate the 15th anniversary of its World Traveller Plus premium economy.

Customers can take advantage of great value fares to Sydney from S$1,215 in World Traveller Plus, the airline’s premium economy cabin.

In addition, the airline is also offering special fares in its World Traveller Plus to London from S$2,415 and from S$2,815 for those looking to travel to New York in extra comfort.

The special return fares are valid for travel between June and November 30, 2015.  The sale ends on July 15, 2015.

British Airways was the first global airline to introduce the fourth class-configured service in 2000. This followed extensive research that showed customers wanted more comfort and quality at an affordable price. 

British Airways has invested £110 million (SG$220 million) in its new World Traveller Plus premium economy and World Traveller economy cabins which are featured on the Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER. Both types of aircraft are used on British Airways’ flights between Singapore and London.

The innovative World Traveller Plus cabin features wider seats, 30 per cent more legroom than World Traveller economy, a footrest, increased recline position, hammock headrest and a cocktail table. In addition, customers can enjoy choosing from the Club World business class entrée menu. It also offers a double baggage allowance of up to 46kg.

Over 1.2 million passengers travel in our World Traveller Plus cabin each year. It’s a great option for cost-conscious business travellers and discerning leisure passengers looking for greater comfort, space and privacy at an affordable price. Robert Williams, British Airways Regional General Manager, South East Asia

British Airways operates two daily services between Singapore and London and a daily service to Sydney.  From December 2015, the airline will be increasing its A380 operations between Singapore and London to a daily service.

All flights to Europe and North America will go via Terminal 5, the airline’s state-of-the-art home at London Heathrow. Terminal 5 is exclusive to customers of British Airways and its sister airline, Iberia, and serves as a gateway to British Airways’ extensive European and North American route networks.
