Singapore Airlines A380 to Participate in National Day Parade Flypast

A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 will take part in the National Day Parade (NDP) aerial flypast on 9 August to celebrate Singapores 50th birthday, marking the first time SIA will be participating in the NDP flypast.

The aircraft will be in a special livery, featuring a 10m-tall and 47m-long Singapore flag-themed design on both sides of the fuselage, with the official SG50 logo on the inboard engines and the NDP 2015 Majulah Singapura Our Golden Jubilee logo on the underside.

It will make its flypast over the Marina Bay area at the closing of the Vintage Parade segment of the show, which will also feature 20 Singapore Girls on trishaws, reminiscent of famous Singapore Airlines advertisements of the past.

Singapore Airlines success is closely linked to that of Singapore, and like all Singaporeans we look forward to celebrating the nations birthday on 9 August. We are honoured to be participating in the National Day Parade during Singapores Golden Jubilee year, with the worlds largest passenger aircraft in the aerial flypast and our iconic Singapore Girl cabin crew in the Vintage Parade, said Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong.

Singapore Airlines will have two aircraft in the special livery through the end of this year, serving Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Sydney and Zurich routes.
