Singapore Airlines Celebrates A380 Milestone

Singapore Airlines wishes Happy Birthday to its largest passenger aircraft in the sky, the Airbus A380, as the airline marks the fifth anniversary of the A380's maiden flight from Singapore to Sydney in October 2007.

Singapore Airlines was not only proud to be the launch customer of the A380, but also lead the way in setting a new standard for luxury, space and comfort with the introduction of unique features onboard the superjumbo.

Over the last five years, SIA has carried more than 9 million customers over 24,000 A380 flights, and clocked approximately 240,000 hours.

Subhas Menon, Regional Vice-President South West Pacific, 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 now operates 19 A380s to 10 destinations worldwide, with London being the busiest route with 3 daily A380 flights, followed by Sydney and Melbourne with double daily A380 services. Daily services also operate to Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Los Angeles, London and New York. Customers from Sydney and Melbourne can enjoy "A380 all the way" connections to these destinations.

To mark the occasion, customers in Sydney and Melbourne travelling on A380 flights today will be treated to a special commemorative A380 gift pack and a few chocolate treats. As part of the airline's 45th anniversary celebrations since the start of services to Sydney, Singapore Airlines will be hosting a special reception at Sydney Theatre on 27 October, with an exclusive Gala Performance by Sydney Dance Company.
