Singapore Airlines currently operates four daily flights to Perth from their Singapore hub with a mix of Boeing 777-200 and Airbus A330 aircraft, but in May 2018 the airline’s new 787-10 will replace one of these services.
The 787-10s will feature Singapore Airlines’ new regional cabin products and will seat 337 customers in two classes, with 36 Business Class and 301 Economy Class seats.
Perth will become the second scheduled destination to be served by Singapore Airlines’ new Boeing 787-10 fleet and the first Australian destination to welcome the new aircraft.
“Deploying our brand new 787-10 product to Perth reinforces the importance the city plays in our global network and will help to cater for the growing demand we have seen from the West Australian Market,” said Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President, Mr Philip Goh.
“I am looking forward to welcoming the new aircraft to Perth and showcasing our new regional cabin products to our customers.”
Prior to the launch of services to Perth, the 787-10s will be operated on selected flights to Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur for crew training purposes, before the first scheduled service to Osaka in May 2018.
