Singapore Airlines A380 To Serve India

 
 

“We have been keen to operate the Airbus A380 to India and are glad that the Air Services Agreement between Singapore and India now allows us to do so,”

Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Ms Lee Wen Fen

07 April 2014 - Singapore Airlines customers flying to Mumbai and New Delhi will be able to experience the world’s largest aircraft from late May, with the deployment of the Airbus A380 on select flights.

 

The A380 superjumbo will operate daily to both Mumbai and New Delhi with effect from 30 May 2014, taking over from two daily flights that currently serve each city using smaller Boeing 777s. Another daily flight will continue to be operated with B777s. In total, 14 flights will serve each city per week. 

 

“We have been keen to operate the Airbus A380 to India and are glad that the Air Services Agreement between Singapore and India now allows us to do so,” said Singapore Airlines Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Ms Lee Wen Fen.

 

“India is a particularly important market for Singapore Airlines and we are very pleased that more of our customers will soon be able to experience the spaciousness and comfort of the world’s largest aircraft.”

 

Singapore Airlines was the first airline in the world to operate the A380 when it was put into service in October 2007 between Singapore and Sydney. The superjumbo now also serves Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Tokyo Narita and Zurich.
