Singapore Airlines Air Flight Deals around the World

Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines is a global company dedicated to providing air transportation services of the highest quality and to maximising returns for the benefit of its shareholders and employees. We have come a long way since our founding in 1972, evolving from a regional airline to one of the most respected travel brands around the world. We fly one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world to destinations spanning a network across six continents, with the famed Singapore Girl as our internationally-recognisable icon providing the high standards of care and service that customers have come to expect of us.

In February 2004, Singapore Airlines inaugurated its first A340-500 by setting a record for the world’s longest non-stop commercial flight from Singapore to Los Angeles. The Airline bettered the record just months later, in June 2004, when it launched the non-stop Singapore to New York (Newark) flight.

In October 2006, Singapore Airlines launched a comprehensive suite of new generation cabin products comprising the world’s widest First and Business Class full-flat seat products, a new Economy Class seat, and the next generation of the award-winning KrisWorld inflight entertainment system.

On 21 January 2009, Singapore Airlines received the first of 19 new A330-300 aircraft in Toulouse, France. The aircraft is configured in a two-class layout, with 30 new Business Class seats and 255 Economy Class seats.

Virgin Atlantic Worldwide flights & International Flights from the UK & US

Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic is a major British success story. From our first leased jumbo to the UK’s second largest long haul airline, we’ve come a long way, and there’s still much more to do!

Back in the early 80s Richard Branson was probably best known for Virgin Records – the legendary record label that signed major names like the Rolling Stones, Janet Jackson and The Human League. In 1984, much to the horror of his directors, Richard announced to the world that a high quality, value for money airline would begin operating within three months. Three months, some licences, staff and an aircraft packed with celebrities later, Virgin Atlantic Airways was born. By the end of the decade we had flown over 1 million passengers and started shaking up services onboard by being the first airline to offer individual TVs to their business class passengers…

In 2003 came the launch of Virgin Atlantic’s revolutionary Upper Class Suite, the longest and most comfortable flat bed and seat in business class.

The new Virgin Clubhouse at Heathrow opened in March 2006. Amongst the many unique features of the flagship lounge are a cocktail bar, a hair salon, a Cowshed spa, a brasserie and a games room.

In 2007 came the launch of Virgin Atlantic’s brand new check in facilities at Heathrow Terminal Three. For Economy and Premium Economy passengers Zone A is now wider, brighter and more spacious, enabling passengers to check-in at kiosks in a faster and more stress-free way. For Upper Class passengers, came the Upper Class Wing, which offers a private security corridor so passengers can speed through the terminal to the Clubhouse quicker than ever before.

In 2008 we operated a pioneering biofuel demonstration with Boeing and engine manufacturer GE Aviation on a 747 between London and Amsterdam. This was the world’s first flight using biofuel by a commercial airline. Virgin Atlantic has also ordered 15 of the 787-9 Dreamliners which burn around 27% less fuel per passenger than the A340-300, the aircraft it will replace in the Virgin Atlantic fleet.
