Singapore Airlines have made some schedule changes for flights to Melbourne resulting in swapping the 777 service for the newer A350-900 aircraft for a short while.
Information courtesy of Airlineroute:
Singapore Airlines in last week’s schedule update has opened reservation for Airbus A350-900XWB aircraft on Singapore – Melbourne route, currently scheduled from 01SEP16 to 22OCT16. The A350 will operate once a day, as SQ207/208. SIA operates this route 4 times a day.
SQ207 SIN0745 – 1710MEL 359 D
SQ208 MEL1825 – 0015+1SIN 359 D
Singapore Airlines does or will soon fly to these destinations.
- Hong Kong
- Kuala Lumpur
- San Fransisco
Plans are that the second batch of A350 aircraft will be used for flights to Australia and possibly New Zealand replacing A330 aircraft.
The airline is also going to be using a ULR (Ultra Long Range) variant for non stop New York flights which were previously operated by a single class A340-500.
Australia/Pacific is becoming popular with A350 aircraft as Thai, Cathay Pacific and Singapore have plans to fly here with these incredible aircraft.
I’m happy to report there is award space available so book as soon as possible.
Singapore Airlines charge the following amount for award tickets: (Krisflyer miles)
- Business – 55,000 (Oneway)
- Premium Economy – 45,000 (Oneway)
- Economy – 25,000 (Oneway)
Above amount’s are at saver level.
This is a fantastic opportunity to try out the new A350 aircraft if you haven’t. I am highly considering taking this flight to review it.
