LONDON – French carrier Air France has announced it will be bringing La Premiere to Singapore using its daily night flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle.

Starting on October 31, La Premiere will be offered on the Paris-Singapore rotation using the carrier’s flagship Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

There are only four La Premiere suites onboard these aircraft, offering a very exclusive way to fly to the popular Asian destination.

Nicolas Ricard, Commercial Director South East Asia & Oceania, Air France-KLM Group said, “We are happy to see our La Première suites return to Singapore after a two-year interval due to the COVID pandemic.”

“We look forward to welcoming back La Première customers in order to provide them with an exceptional travel experience. With our daily La Première service to and from Singapore, Air France customers also enjoy convenient connections in Singapore.”

“With a VIP welcome and assistance on the ground, a dedicated lounge in Paris offering a fine-dining experience by Alain Ducasse and exclusive beauty treatments by Sisley, an elegant suite on board, and menus signed by French Michelin-starred chefs, La Premiere guests will enjoy a unique travel experience.”

For all scheduling, the services will commence on October 31, 2022, and will suspend on March 25, 2023, highlighting the seasonality of this route.

A New La Premiere Is Coming…


Within this announcement, Air France has also mentioned that a new version of La Premiere is coming in 2023/24. The airline said the following on this:

“In line with the French airline’s pledge to continue to offer the most exclusive and elegant service, widely known for its quality and excellence, Air France announced the development of a completely new La Première cabin.”

“This new concept will be unveiled during the 2023/2024 European winter season.”

“The future cabin will be the longest on the market, offering up to three modular configurations – a seat, a méridienne, and a fully flat bed – that can be fully privatized for an even more exceptional journey.”

“The new cabin will equip a larger number of aircraft than at present.”

Overall…


It remains clear that La Premiere is being asked for on certain international routes across the Air France network, and Singapore is definitely a route to put it on.

From business travel to multimillionaire leisure, this will no doubt prove to be successful, especially with the very limited capacity that Air France is offering for it too.

Looking ahead, it’s going to be interesting to see where else the carrier will introduce this premium product, as it is certainly getting the attention that it deserves.
