Today Singapore Airlines is launching nonstop flights from Singapore to Seattle with the Airbus A350-900, making Seattle their fourth US destination served directly from Singapore, after Newark, Los Angeles, and San Francisco (which also happen to be the first, fifth, and ninth longest flights in the world). The new flight will initially operate 3x weekly, though as of October the frequencies will be increased to 4x weekly.
To commemorate the launch of this new flight, Singapore Airlines has released a new music track, called “Non-Stop.” It’s a creative collaboration between Singapore Airlines and Seattle-based artist Chong the Nomad, and it’s part of a campaign titled “Seattle Sounds Even Better Now.”
What makes this unique is that the track features ambient sounds collected exclusively from the Singapore Airlines Airbus A350, both on the inside and the outside of the aircraft. This includes sounds like the roar of the engine, the “clinking” sound of silverware, the seatbelt sign, the flight attendant call chime, and even an announcement from a Singapore Airlines cabin crew.
As Singapore Airlines’ SVP Sales and Marketing described this collaboration:
“Seattle is known for its rich music scene and is home to major musical influences such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Jimi Hendrix. With the launch of our first flights to Seattle, we wanted to have a little fun and pay a contemporary tribute to this heritage by creating a music track that’s completely one-of-a-kind.”
Here’s the song, which is also available on Spotify, if you prefer:
And here’s a look at how they’ve created this track:
This is a cute concept, and I find the track to be catchy and upbeat. Sure, it’s not quite as catchy as Turkish Airlines’ Globally Yours music, but that’s probably a good thing.
