Singapore Airlines to renew freighter fleet with Airbus

The deliveries will begin in the fourth quarter of 2025.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has signed a Letter of Intent with Airbus to purchase seven A350F freighter aircraft, with options to order another five aircraft.

CEO Goh Choon Phong said, "It ensures that we are prudent with our capital expenditure and adjusts our passenger aircraft order book to give us the flexibility needed to navigate uncertainties in the recovery trajectory. The A350Fs will replace our seven [Boeing] 747-400F freighters, with the options providing the ability to adapt our requirements to future demand in the cargo market."

According to SIA, renewing the freighter fleet reflects its continued investment in the air cargo segment, a core business for the company, especially in e-commerce, fresh produce, and pharmaceuticals. The deal also supports the group's sustainability and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 goals. The deliveries will begin in the fourth quarter of 2025.
