Singapore Airlines will launch its new Airbus A350-900 aircraft on routes out of Manchester serving both Singapore and Houston.
The flight will launch on January 17th next year and will be the first commercial A350 flight from Manchester Airport.
This development enhances the new non-stop Singapore Airlines routes to Singapore and Houston from Manchester Airport, which launched on October 30th.
The latest addition of the A350 forms a key part of the Airline’s fleet, enabling Singapore Airlines to offer customers an improved travelling experience, to introduce new destinations and enhance its current connectivity.
It also introduces the Airline’s new premium economy class cabin and the latest business class design to those flying from Manchester.
The A350-900’s long-haul flights will seat 253 passengers.
Class of travel deployment is subject to market conditions.
Sheldon Hee, Singapore Airlines, general manager of UK & Ireland said: “We are excited to operate the A350, the newest and most advanced aircraft in our fleet to Singapore and Houston from Manchester shortly.
“We are now able to offer customers our Premium Economy cabin, which offers priority check-in, a wider seat and 13-inch touch screen monitor.
“Our new A350 services are a commitment to keep investing in delivering an ever better experience for our customers in the north, and with our recent codeshare partnership with FlyBe, we will be offering convenient access to Singapore Airlines from even more cities.”
