How technology is revolutionising the modern flight experience

Jan 11, 2021

Those who qualify for lounge access may grab a pre-flight dinner at the SilverKris Lounge, where visitors use QR codes and online menus to place their orders then collect their meals when notified via phone. Or spend time browsing the KrisShop website for potential duty free purchases which can be delivered straight to your seat up to 60 minutes before departure from Singapore. Those departing Singapore Changi Airport might even catch a glimpse of the autonomous cleaning robots that keep the place looking spick and span.

The planes themselves are paragons of safe travel, comfort and modern design. The A350, Boeing 787 Dreamliner and A380 double decker are among the greenest and most fuel-efficient aircraft in the world, the latest models having even introduced jet-lag reducing humidifiers in the cabins. The entire fleet also uses High-Efficiency Particulate Air standard filters to keep onboard air quality high by filtering out 99.9% of airborne microbes.
