Airbus A380 to be transformed into a pop-up restaurant during the pandemic

An Airbus A380 is being transformed into a pop-up restaurant where diners can tuck into their favourite in-flight meals, without actually flying anywhere.

Oh, and just like a real flight experience, you can choose between economy, business class or first class dining options.

Singapore Airlines is transforming its A380 double-decker superjumbo into a dining experience, Restaurant A380 @Changi, located at Changi Airport in Singapore.

The airline has been forced to significantly reduce its services as a result of the worldwide travel restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic.

The new dining experience aims to bring the flight experience to those who are missing travel – including eating the same in-flight meals that you would have on a flight with the airline.

That includes some of the fine dining dishes on its menu, which have been created by acclaimed Singaporean chef Shermay Lee.

Diners will also get extra treats such as two complimentary alcoholic drinks and a free flow of other beverages.

The new dining experience will be a pop-up at Changi Airport, and will initially be open for just two days in October. You can find out more on the Singapore Airlines website.

Singapore Airlines isn’t the first airline to come up with a nifty way to serve its in-flight meals when it’s not running its usual flight schedule.



Diners can pick the cabin type they want to sample food from

Thai Airways introduced a similar concept last month, when it opened an aircraft-themed restaurant in its Bangkok headquarters office.

The airline transformed its canteen and kitted it out to look like the inside of one its cabins. Diners sat in aircraft seats and tucked into dishes from the in-flight menus, on furniture that was made from old aircraft parts.

The idea of bringing in-flight menus to the ground isn’t new.

Last year, AirAsia opened a fast food restaurant which serves up the same dishes as those available on its in-flight menus.

The company said at the time that the decision came after they saw demand for their in-flight menu ‘beyond our flights’.
