Nearly a decade has passed since Singapore Airlines launched its premium economy product. This week, the Star Alliance carrier unveiled its biggest revamp of the cabin yet — a 2-year project encompassing new meals, amenities, and welcome Champagne.

Here’s a first look at what’s changed onboard, all of which passengers can experience starting on March 31, 2024.

A Refreshed Dining Concept

Premium economy is one of the hottest segments in the industry and is a major money-maker for carriers like Singapore Airlines. According to post-flight passenger surveys, food and beverage have a significant impact on overall customer satisfaction. In particular, differentiated menu offerings were an unmet opportunity, airline officials say.

The new premium economy tray set up.

As such, the launch event inside the airline’s catering facility at Changi Airport showcased a selection of over 200 new meals, 20 “Book the Cook” pre-order options, nearly 30 percent larger portion sizes, and a post-take-off Champagne offering, a Charles de Cazanove Brut Tradition NV.

Singapore Premium Economy Meal
Singapore is offering more substantial portions in premium economy.

All premium economy meals will now be served in elegant porcelain stoneware, a major step up from the plastic containers previously used.

Passengers can also select from an expanded “Book the Cook” menu, which features up to 20 dishes for pre-order at least 24 hours before departure. Book the Cook allows passengers on select routes to reserve entrees with a massive selection of dishes that wouldn’t otherwise be available onboard. 

This includes popular choices such as Singapore-style seafood hor fun and chicken biryani, as well as new additions like slow-braised lamb ragout, sake teriyaki (a salmon in teriyaki sauce), and plant-based wellness dishes such as mushroom eggplant meatballs.

Updated Amenities

SQ PE New Amenities
New premium economy amenity kits.

On flights that are at least 7 hours long, an all-new amenity kit, designed exclusively for premium economy class customers, will now be available. Inside these eco-friendly bags, expect essentials like an eyemask, lip balm, and foldable slippers. Dental kits and moisturizers will continue to be available in the lavatories.

Final thoughts

Singapore Airlines flies its premium economy cabin to 32 destinations, including the longest flight in the world between New York (JFK) and Singapore (SIN). This revamped onboard experience is sure to make the airline even more competitive at a time when airlines are introducing (or expanding) premium economy left and right.
