Singapore Airline’s first A380 flight in October

Airbus and Singapore Airlines have agreed to a delivery timetable for the first A380 aircraft. The aircraft is planned for handover by Airbus to Singapore Airlines on October 15 at a ceremony in Toulouse, France, the airline said. It will be configured with 471 seats in three classes: Economy, Business and the new Singapore Airlines Suites: a class beyond First.

Within a few days of delivery, the aircraft will fly to Singapore’s Changi Airport, the world’s first A380 home airport. There will be a short period set aside for crew and ground staff familiarisation. World aviation history will be made when the Singapore Airlines A380 makes its first flight – SQ380 – to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport on October 25 and returns to Singapore the following day.
