Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 22 July 2011

The as yet unnamed low cost airline that Singapore Airlines is planning to launch next year, will use Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

The aircraft will initially be acquired from parent company Singapore Airlines and will be reconfigured in a new seating layout.

The Boeing 777 family of aircraft has been a mainstay of the Singapore Airlines fleet since its introduction in 1997.

Campbell Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of the new airline, said, The selection of the initial fleet marks another milestone in the establishment of the new airline. The process is progressing well for our launch next year.

The new airline, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, will operate under a no-frills, low cost model serving medium and long-haul routes.

The airline will be operated independently and managed separately from Singapore Airlines.

Details of its branding, terminal to be used, products, services, and route network are expected to be unveiled in the coming months.
