Singapore Airlines to commence Airbus A380 service to Melbourne

Singapore Airlines is commencing an Airbus A380 superjumbo service to Melbourne, Australia from September 29 2009.

The daily A380 flights will replace an existing daily Boeing 747-400 service (part of a triple daily) to Melbourne and will help the airline increase capacity by 10%. SQ227 will depart Singapore Changi Airport at 2100hrs and arrive in Melbourne at 0610hrs (0710hrs from 4 October 2009 due to daylight savings) the next day. On the return leg, SQ228 will depart Melbourne at 1550hrs (1650hrs from 4 October 2009) and arrive in Singapore at 2140hrs.

Melbourne will be the second city in Australia and sixth city in the Singapore Airline network to receive the A380. Sydney was the first to receive the superjumbo when Singapore Airlines began operating the A380 in October 2007. The Airline subsequently added London, Tokyo, Paris and Hong Kong to its list of A380 destinations.
