 Singapore Airlines has launched Airbus A380 flights between Singapore Changi Airport and Melbourne, the capital city of the Australian state of Victoria.

 Flight SQ227, operated with a 471-seat double-decker A380 aircraft, departs Singapore at 21:00 to arrive in Melbourne at around 05:45. The return journey departs Melbourne at 15:50 and touches down in Singapore at 21:40.

Melbourne is the second Australian city and sixth city in Singapore Airlines’ network to receive the A380. Singapore Airlines currently operates 21 weekly flights between Singapore and Melbourne, including the daily A380 service.

“The A380 continues to be extremely popular with our customers, as we see very positive booking response for our scheduled A380 services between Singapore and Melbourne. Since the start of its operation in October 2007, the A380 has carried more than 1.8 million customers on more than 4,600 commercial flights. Our A380 customers tremendously enjoy the quiet cabin ambience, our innovative inflight products and gracious service delivered by our cabin crew. On routes with multiple daily frequencies operated with different aircraft, many of our customers will specifically choose the service that is operated by this clean and green superjumbo,” said Mr. Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice President, Marketing and the Regions.

The A380 features the exclusive Singapore Airlines Suites. Each suite comes with sliding doors and adjustable roller-blinds, and a luxurious leather seat upholstered by Italy’s Poltrona Frau. Come bedtime, a full-sized bed with plush pillows and duvet is deployed for the customer by the cabin crew.

At 86 centimetres (34 inches), the Singapore Airlines Business Class seat is one of the widest in its class. Fully adjustable by an intuitive control panel, the seat can be adjusted to suit any seating or lounging positions. The seatback folds down easily to form a comfortable, full-flat bed. The intelligent design allows customers to lounge in bed to watch movies or TV programmes, read or dine as they would in the comfort of their own homes.

Utilising advanced materials, the ergonomically-designed Economy Class seat provides customers with comfortable legroom and personal space. With smart innovations like the non-intrusive reading lights and height-adjustable leather headrest, the Singapore Airlines Economy Class promises more comfort and privacy than ever.

Singapore Airlines first started A380 operations to Sydney in October 2007, and subsequently added superjumbo services to London, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong and now, Melbourne. The airline currently has 10 A380s in the fleet, with a further nine on firm order and options on six more.

SQ227 departs from Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3. Customers should proceed to Terminal 3 to check in for this flight.
