SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) on Thursday unveiled its new Premium Economy Class seats and in-flight offerings at a launch event to the media, travel agents and corporate clients.

The new service, which will be rolled out in August, comes after a two-year development programme and an investment of about US$80 million.

"Many of our customers have been asking for a Premium Economy offering and we are confident that what we are delivering will exceed their expectations," said SIA's executive vice-president (commercial), Mak Swee Wah.

Customers can look forward to a wide range of in-flight offerings including a "Book the Cook" service, champagne and curated wines, a specially designed collector's edition amenity kit and the world's most advanced in-flight entertainment system, the airline said in a statement.
