Singapore Airlines celebrates fifth anniversary of A380 operations

25-Oct-2012 11:11 AM

Singapore Airlines celebrated (25-Oct-2012) its fifth anniversary of A380 operations after operating the maiden A380 Singapore-Sydney service in Oct-2007. The airline has carried over nine million passengers on over 24,000 A380 flights and has clocked approximately 240,000 hours on its A380 fleet. Singapore Airlines regional VP South West Pacific Subhas Menon said, "We were so excited to be the first airline to introduce the A380 to much fanfare and five years on, the excitement around our A380 services continues, more recently with the introduction of a second daily service to Melbourne. The popularity of our A380s reflects the fact that we delivered on the brief given to us by our customers, and as this is a continuous process, we look forward to doing the same in 2013 when we unveil the next generation of Singapore Airlines’ cabin interiors and seats." Singapore Airlines currently operates 19 A380s to 10 destinations worldwide. [more - original PR]
