Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 15 July 2009

Singapore Airlines is to launch direct Airbus A380 flights between Singapore and Melbourne, Australia on 29 September 2009.

Melbourne will be the second city in Australia and sixth city in the airline’s network to receive the A380. Sydney was the first to receive the superjumbo when Singapore Airlines began operating the A380 in October 2007. The airline subsequently added London, Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong to its list of A380 destinations.

Mr. Huang Cheng Eng, Executive Vice President, Marketing and the Regions, said, “We are excited to fly the A380 to Melbourne, the second most populous city in Australia and a vibrant centre for commerce, arts, industry, sports and tourism. As the greenest widebody aircraft in the sky, the 471-seat A380 will increase the seat capacity to Melbourne by 10%, without the need for additional frequencies.”

The daily A380 flights will replace an existing daily Boeing 747-400 service to Melbourne.

 SQ227 will depart Singapore Changi Airport at 21:00 and arrive in Melbourne at 06:10 (07:10 from 4 October 2009 due to daylight savings) the next day.

On the return leg, SQ228 will depart Melbourne at 15:50 (16:50 from 4 October 2009) and touch down in Singapore at 21:40.

Singapore Airlines currently operates 21 weekly services between Singapore and Melbourne.

 The airline also flies to four other Australian cities including Adelaide (7 times weekly), Brisbane (19 times weekly), Perth (19 times weekly) and Sydney (28 times weekly).
