Singapore Airlines Cabin Classes

Virgin Australia’s alliance with Singapore Airlines offers guests more comfortable ways to travel than ever before. Whether discussing business, or sharing a relaxing moment, each cabin is exceptionally accommodating. Singapore Airlines services from Australia are operated by a combination of next generation Airbus A380 and Airbus A330 aircraft.

*Singapore Airlines First class suites and seats can only be booked as a Singapore Airlines flight number (not Virgin Australia codeshare), however, Velocity members will still earn points for these journeys.



Exclusively on board the A380 aircraft, the Singapore Airlines Suites are your haven of luxury. From warm tones with lavish accents, to sliding doors and window blinds, your Suite exudes a sense of luxury and privacy. Relax on a standalone bed with a plush duvet and extra soft bedding, or lounge in a separate seat upholstered in full-grain leather, you’ll be well rested throughout your journey.
