Singapore Airlines To Add Third Daily A380 Service Between Singapore And London

 

10 April 2012 - Singapore Airlines’ three daily services on the Singapore-London route will all be operated with the Airbus A380 from 1 June 2012.

 

Currently, two of the services are operated with the superjumbo while one is operated with the Boeing 777-300ER. From 1 June 2012, the third daily service, departing Singapore as flight SQ308 and returning from London as SQ319, will be operated with an A380 as well.

 

The switch to the larger A380 will increase seat capacity on the route by 17% a day. 

 

London was Singapore Airlines’ first destination in Europe to receive the superjumbo, in March 2008.  This was increased to double-daily A380 operations six months later.

 

Singapore Airlines currently operates the A380 to 10 destinations: Sydney, London, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Zurich, Los Angeles, Frankfurt and New York.  The world’s first carrier to operate the superjumbo in October 2007, Singapore Airlines has since carried over 7 million customers on the A380 system-wide.  The Airline currently has 17 A380s and two more on firm order.

 

A detailed schedule for the Singapore-London route can be found in Annex 1.
