Singapore Airlines Media Centre - News Releases (2009)




3 September 2009 - Singapore Airlines and Airbus have agreed on a revised delivery schedule for eight A380 aircraft on firm order.


Under the new schedule, deliveries will take place between six months and 12 months later than originally planned, for the Airline’s 12th A380 through to the 19th.


The revised schedule will see the 12th aircraft delivered in October 2010 rather than April 2010, while the 19th aircraft will be delivered in January 2012 rather than January 2011.


SIA currently operates nine A380s with two more due for delivery this financial year.  The revised schedule will not affect these two aircraft.


SIA is satisfied with the operational and commercial performance of its A380s, which have proved to be popular with customers since the inaugural service on the Singapore-Sydney route nearly two years ago. SIA currently flies the A380 twice a day to London, and daily to Sydney, Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong, and starting from 29 September to Melbourne as well.
