Singapore Airlines receives second A380

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 11, 2008

Singapore Airlines (SIA) took delivery of its second superjumbo A380 on schedule from the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus on Friday, SIA said on Friday night.

The world’s largest passenger aircraft was handed over to SIA at the Airbus Delivery Center in Toulouse, France, on Friday morning (Toulouse time), said SIA in a statement.

It is expected to arrive in Singapore on Saturday morning.

SIA, Singapore’s flag airline, is the world’s first airline to fly the first A380, which launched commercial service between Singapore and Sydney in October last year after 18 months delay.

The second aircraft will complement the first, allowing some rotation of aircraft on the existing Sydney route, and providing opportunities for crew training, SIA said. (story)
