Singapore Airlines is flying the new A380 into Hong Kong and is offering an air ticket for just HK$1,259 to mark its 60th anniversary of operations in the city.

The new aircraft featuring new cabins will operate as SQ861/856 between Hong Kong and Singapore on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays until April 30 and will fly daily from May 1.

Until April 18, the carrier is offering business class fares from HK$10,529 (with taxes included), premium economy class from HK$3,889, and economy from HK$1,259 for outbound travel by September 20. Holiday packages for three days two nights are also available from HK$2,458.

The new cabin was unveiled in Singapore in November. It can seat up to 471 passengers in four classes featuring six suites, 78 in business class, 44 in premium economy and 343 in economy class. Passengers will experience a sense of exclusivity and intimate privacy in the upper deck suites.

Each suite is furnished with a separate full-flat bed with adjustable recline and plush leather chair, enabling customers to lounge comfortably in the chair or rest in bed. For couples traveling together, the beds in the first two suites of each aisle can be converted to form a double bed.

Measuring 25 inches in width, the business class seat, which has two side wings for better back support, reclines directly into a comfortable full-flat bed (78 inches).

A larger back shell on every seat creates a cocoon-like feel for more privacy while the center divider can be fully lowered to form double beds, making the two center seats an ideal choice for families.

Premium economy seats are 19.5 inches wide, with eight-inch recline and seat pitch of 38 inches. Economy seats offer more leg room and back support, with adjustable headrest. Singapore Airlines operates seven daily flights beween Hong Kong and Singapore and a daily service between the city and San Francisco.
