SIA boost A380 London service

Singapore Airlines will add an additional A380 service on the Singapore-London route
on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.  The world’s largest passenger
aircraft will be used to operate flights SQ 318 from Singapore to London
Heathrow, and the returning flight, SQ 321. 

This is in addition to the current daily A380 service operated on flights SQ 322
(Singapore-London) and SQ 317 (London-Singapore.

The additional service will boost the number of Singapore Airlines A380 flights
between the two cities to 11 times a week, up from 7.

“Our A380 products have been very well received by our customers, and loads
on the Singapore-London route have been exceptionally encouraging. The
deployment of another A380 on this route will cater to continual strong
demand from customers traveling between Singapore and London,” said Mr
Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Marketing and
The increase in A380 services to London will follow the scheduled delivery of
Singapore Airlines’ fifth A380 aircraft from manufacturers, Airbus, in late June

The new A380 service between Singapore and London will take effect from 16
July 2008. However, there will be a temporary break in A380 operations on
SQ 318 (Singapore-London) and SQ 321 (London-Singapore) from 31 July
2008 to 9 August 2008 inclusive as the aircraft will be deployed to Beijing for
a week, to cater for increased demand in the lead-up to the start of the
Olympic Games.
