Singapore Airlines doubles A380 flights to Sydney

Singapore Airlines will double the number of Airbus A380 aircraft flying between Sydney and Singapore, adding 140,000 seats a year will be available on the route.

Singapore AirlinesSingapore Airlines will replace one of the daily B777-300ER flights in the afternoon from Sydney with the second Airbus A380 aircraft from this Sunday. SQ222 will depart Sydney each day at 4.30pm and arrive in Singapore at 9.40 pm local time. The return flight, SQ231 will depart Singapore at just after midnight and arrive the same day in Sydney at 11.25 am.

Subhas Menon, Singapore Airlines’ Regional Vice President South West Pacific, said the Airline is rolling out the Airbus A380 along growth routes in accordance with demand.

“The launch of this second A380 service is in response to the growth in demand we are experiencing on the Sydney-Singapore route,”

“As the first airline to fly the A380, we began the super-jumbo services on this same route in October 2007. This second daily A380 will make travel between Singapore and Sydney easier and more convenient for both business and leisure travellers with onward connecting flights from Singapore, particularly to Europe,” Mr Menon said.

Singapore Airlines will also be adding inflight Wi-Fi internet and mobile telephone services from early 2011.
