Singapore Airlines kicks off new Seattle service with track on Spotify

Seattle is the fourth destination added to the airline’s non-stop operation to the United States

Travellers departing from Singapore now have it much easier to get to Seattle. Singapore Airlines (SIA) continues its expansion of non-stop services to the United States with a non-stop service to the city. 

The inaugural flight departed from the Changi international airport on Tuesday, 3 September and landed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on the same day. To celebrate the new service, SIA has released a new track that is available on Spotify.

Seattle is the fourth US destination after Los Angeles, New York (Newark) and San Francisco to be served non-stop from Singapore.

 

Initially, the airline will operate the Seattle flights three times per week. In October, they will increase it to four times weekly.

The airline has chosen Airbus A350-900 aircraft for the route fitted with 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy Class and 187 Economy Class seats.

SIA teams up with a Seattle-based musician to release a music track of Airbus ambient noises

 As a part of a campaign called “Seattle Sounds Even Better Now” the airline has teamed up with a Seattle-based artist Chong the Nomad for the remix. 

 

The track called Non-Stop features ambient sounds collected from the aircraft type operating these flights – the Airbus A350-900.

“Seattle is known for its rich music scene and is home to major musical influences such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Jimi Hendrix. With the launch of our first flights to Seattle, we wanted to have a little fun and pay a contemporary tribute to this heritage by creating a music track that’s completely one-of-a-kind,” said Mr Campbell Wilson, Singapore Airlines’ senior vice president of sales and marketing. 

“Working alongside up-and-coming producer and beatsmith, Chong the Nomad, we’ve created a brand new track by remixing sounds collected directly from our Airbus A350, and we’re excited to share with everyone the final product of this innovative and playful collaboration.”
