Singapore Airlines' Mission Statement

Singapore Airlines has come a long way since our founding in 1972, evolving from a regional airline to one of the most respected travel brands around the world. We fly one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world to destinations spanning a network spread over six continents, with our Singapore Girl as our internationally-recognisable icon providing the high standards of care and service that customers have come to expect of us.

We have made a habit of leading the way, and along the way developed a reputation for being an industry trendsetter. Our ever-growing list of industry-leading innovations includes the following firsts:

  • First to offer free headsets, a choice of meals and free drinks in Economy Class, in the 1970s
  • First to introduce satellite-based inflight telephones in 1991
  • First to involve a comprehensive panel of world-renowned chefs, the International Culinary Panel, in developing inflight meals in 1998
  • First to offer audio and video on demand (AVOD) capabilities on KrisWorld in all classes in October 2001
  • First to fly the A380 from Singapore to Sydney on 25 October 2007
