Singapore Airlines to operate A350 to India

APRIL 19, 2017

ingapore Airlines (SIA) plans to deploy Airbus A350 on India-Singapore sector later this year with a view to optimise the age of its existing fleet, a top official said.

“We are expecting to bring the A350 to India later this year,” said David Lim, general manager, India, Singapore Airlines.

“This will replace the existing Boeing 777-200 and Airbus A330.”

“While Airbus A350 has 253 seats, Boeing 777-200 has 270-280 seats. We are trying to replace them to keep our fleet as young as possible. The average age of our fleet is seven years and eight months, said an airline spokesperson.

SIA currently has 12 A350 aircraft.

The Airbus A350 was deployed on the Singapore-San Francisco sector (non-stop service) in October 2016 and it had received overwhelming response.

Asked about the cities which these aircraft may connect, Mr. Lim said: “When we fly long routes, there would be some time in between. We are trying to use this time to fly to India. However, it is too early to say.” Currently, there were no plans to add more cities or flights, he added.

Good this will increase the standards and bring the airline in light.
