SIA adds Perth to Boeing 787-10 fleet's destinations

The 787-10s' combined Business and Economy classes will seat 337 customers.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) set the second destination of its Boeing 787-10 fleet to Perth, Australia. According to a press release, flights are expected to commence in May 2018, subject to regulatory approvals, initially on one of the Airline’s four daily flights between Singapore and Perth. 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.

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. The first aircraft in Singapore Airlines’ livery completed its flight testing at Boeing’s North Charleston, South Carolina production facility on 9 February 2018. In addition to the 49 firm orders for 787-10s, the SIA has a firm order with Boeing for 20 more 777-9s, which are due for delivery from the 2021-2022 financial year.
