First pictures of iPod integration in Singapore A330s

26th January 2009 - 15:38 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Singapore Airlines has released pictures of the iPod/iPhone facility that will form part of the IFE/connectivity offering aboard its new Airbus A330-300s when they start to enter service at the end of March (Inflight Online, January 22).

The feature debuted on SIA’s all-business Airbus A340-500s last year and now the carrier is claiming that its introduction in the economy cabin of the A330-300s will be a world first. iPod and iPhone integration is currently available on SIA’s A340-500 non-stop flights between Singapore and Newark and Los Angeles.
Allowing passengers to play iPod and iPhone content through the in-seat Panasonic eX2 IFE system, the capability is delivered through a new multi-port panel set next to the in-seat screen. The panel also contains a USB port, enabling passengers to listen to music, view photos and read PDFs carried aboard on a data stick, and an audio-video input to allow video on portable media players to be viewed on the in-seat screen.

Economy in the A330-300 will also reflect the standard set in SIA’s other new aircraft, the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 777-300ER.

This includes a new Weber-built seat. Measuring 19in wide and set at 32in pitch, it is said to offer more space and legroom than comparable seats on other carriers. It features a 10.2in screen, a handset located in the seatback, a reading light installed beneath the screen, laptop power, a footrest, height-adjustable leather headrests with side panels, and a coathook and spectacle case.
