Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Monday, 17 September 2007

Singapore Airlines is to begin scheduled services with the new Airbus A380 between Singapore and Sydney on Sunday 28 October 2007.

The airline's A380 will operate a daily return flight, replacing one of the three Boeing 747-400 services on the route. The aircraft will operate SQ221, departing Singapore in the evening and arriving into Sydney in the early morning, and return as SQ220, departing Sydney in the morning and arriving into Singapore is the early afternoon.

The 471-seat aircraft is configured in three classes: 12 Singapore Airlines Suites (on the main deck), 60 Business Class (on the upper deck) and 399 Economy Class seats (on both decks).

The Business and Economy Class cabin products are modelled on those launched in late 2006 and currently featuring on the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The new Singapore Airlines Suites will be unveiled at the delivery of the A380 in October, and will feature what the airline is calling "the ultimate inflight luxury, in a class beyond First".

Flight, SQ221, will depart Singapore at 20:30 to arrive in Sydney at 07:00 the following day. The return flight, SQ 220, leaves Sydney at 08:50 for a 13:45 same-day arrival in Singapore.
