Singapore Airlines will fly A380 for 60 minutes

Read Time:2 Minute, 6 Second

 The Airbus A380 is designed for long-distance flights, thanks to its large size and a reputation for quiet in-flight experience.

But by November 2021, Singapore Airlines will deploy super-large passenger aircraft on short-haul flights that last only 60 minutes.

Passengers taking certain flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will board the A380 passenger flight which is considered to be the shortest currently in service.

Singapore Airlines confirmed to updatednews24 that the A380 will also be deployed “temporarily” on the SQ106 (SIN-KUL) and SQ105 (KUL-SIN) routes three times a week from November 4 to December 2, 2021.

The A380 will also fly Singapore Airlines’ SQ126 (SIN-KUL) and SQ125 (KUL-SIN) routes four times a week from November 5 to December 3.

Singapore Airlines also recently announced that it plans to resume its grounded A380 aircraft from mid-November for some return flights from Singapore to London.

A spokesperson for Singapore Airlines stated that the A380 Kuala Lumpur flights were arranged “based on operational needs.”

The return of the super giant

Last week, Siva Govindasamy, head of global public affairs at Singapore Airlines, told when announcing the return of the A380 that Singapore Airlines recognizes the long-lasting appeal of the A380 to passengers, which is part of the reason why the airline resumed its rotation.

“The A380 is a great aircraft,” Govindasamy said. “Some people just book the A380 specifically to ride it.”

Singapore Airlines is not the only airline operating one-off short-haul super-large flights this fall.

Beginning in early November 2021, British Airways will send A380 aircraft from London to selected European destinations. The airline stated that the move is to “familiarize the crew” before the super airliner returns to transatlantic service.

BA has not officially confirmed which European short-haul flights will be operated by the A380, but its booking website currently indicates that the aircraft will be used for some journeys on the London to Frankfurt and Madrid routes.

For a while, Covid-19 seemed to herald the end of super jumbo aircraft-Airbus no longer produces such giant aircraft.

However, although airlines such as Lufthansa and Air France have retired their super airliners, airlines such as Singapore Airlines and British Airways, as well as Emirates, Qantas and All Nippon Airways are still committed to using the A380.
