Singapore Airlines receives Second Airbus A380

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Saturday, 12 January  2008

On Friday, Singapore Airlines took delivery of its second Airbus A380, the worlds largest passenger aircraft. The aircraft was handed over to Singapore Airlines at the Airbus Delivery Centre in Toulouse, France.

Like the first A380 delivered in October 2007, this aircraft is fitted with the new generation Singapore Airlines cabin products, seating 471 in a 3-class layout. The configuration includes the luxurious Singapore Airlines Suites, the award-winning 4-abreast Business Class and a new, more comfortable Economy cabin.

This aircraft will complement the first aircraft, allowing some rotation of aircraft on the existing Sydney route, and providing opportunities for crew training.

Then, on delivery of the third aircraft in late February, Singapore Airlines will mount a daily service between Singapore and London Heathrow.

Singapore Airlines is the first to fly the A380, and is currently the only airline in the world operating the aircraft. It currently flies daily between Singapore and Sydney. The airline has firm orders for a further 17 A380s.
