In the time it takes to read through the hundreds of awards Singapore Airlines has received since 2000, you could (almost) fly halfway across the world!
In 2019 alone the airline has been hailed the Best Overall airline at the DestinAsian (Asia’s leading luxury travel and lifestyle magazine – Jakarta) Readers’ Choice Awards for the 14th year running and made it into Condé Nast Traveler’s China The Gold List as Best Airline – and that’s just two of many more accolades.
Read on to find out why Singapore Airlines is officially one of the world’s safest and best.
Who better to judge an airline than the people who actually use it? Singapore Airlines passed with flying colours in TripAdvisor’s annual Traveller’s Choice Awards 2019, where it was named the number-one airline in the world for the second year running. The ranking is based on millions of reviews and ratings, then analysed using an algorithm. Singapore Airlines has also spent 18 consecutive years as Best Airline in the World at the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards.
Nervous flyer or not, it’s nice to know you’re in safe hands on board – and there’s no doubt about it when flying Singapore Airlines. It was named among the world’s 20 safest airlines for 2019 by AirlineRatings.com, making it a standout in the industry and placing it at the forefront of safety, innovation, and launching of new aircraft. Staff training is notoriously rigorous. Several cabin emergency simulators, including an enormous wave-generating pool for the “open sea” aircraft ditching practice, put Singapore Girls and Guys through extreme physical trials. Like their peers around the world, the airline’s flight attendants must learn first aid, CPR, and fire fighting. The safety training is ongoing, with recurrent testing every year.
If you’re lucky enough to fly Business or First Class with Singapore Airlines you can select from the fine-dining Book the Cook menu. Choose from a wide range of dishes, including creations inspired by Singapore Airline’s International Culinary Panel. If you’re an indecisive eater, fear not – you have up until 24 hours before your flight to choose. Offerings vary depending on destination, but you can expect gourmet options such as grilled beef steak, scallops and lobster.
No need to dread a long-haul flight in economy when you’re flying with Singapore Airlines. The New Economy Class features ergonomically designed backrests and a six-way headrest for neck support, a dining service with special meals to suit all needs, a power outlet and USB port at your seat, additional stowage areas and a generous amount of leg space.
With 1,800 on-demand entertainment options on board, even the longest flights are made bearable on Singapore Airlines. The KrisWorld entertainment system is packed with movies – including new blockbusters – TV series, music, games, apps and inflight connectivity for those who need to make calls or simply want to browse the internet.

If your Singapore Airlines flight requires a stopover, you’ll have the pleasure of visiting Singapore’s Changi Airport – voted Skytrax World’s Best Airport for seven years running. Forget worrying about how to spend those hours between flights; in fact, you’ll wish you had longer! Incredible entertainment includes a free city tour for those with at least 5.5 hours to spare, movie theatres showing the latest blockbusters, the world’s first airport butterfly garden, a swimming pool with jacuzzi, a cactus and sunflower garden, a children’s play area and a huge variety of shops and restaurants.
Service of the highest standard is guaranteed aboard Singapore Airlines, home to the World’s Best Cabin Crew Service at the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards for 23 years running and voted Skytrax’s World’s Best Cabin Crew for 2019. ‘Singapore Girls’ (and guys) spend twice the industry standard time in training and abide by very strict rules – all to bring you the utmost in safety and comfort onboard.
