Osaka (Japan) and Perth (Western Australia) are top of the list to see scheduled services by Singapore Airlines’ first Boeing B787-10 next month after the carrier took delivery of the first of the manufacturer’s newest and largest Dreamliner model.
Airline chief executive Goh Choon Phong said SIA, the launch customer, will receive the first eight of 49 of the Dash-10 versions in the coming financial year, with the aircraft becoming an important element in the carrier’s overall growth strategy.
“It is an honour for us to be the world’s first airline to take delivery of this amazing aircraft,” he added. “The B787-10 is a magnificent piece of engineering and truly a work of art and will enable us to expand our network and strengthen our operations.”
SIA, through its subsidiary Scoot, already flies the B787-8 and B787-9 Dreamliners and with the latest delivery the group becomes the first to operate all three Dreamliner models.
Singapore Airlines also has 68 additional Boeing widebody jets on order, including 48 additional B787-10s, and 20 of the new B777-9s.
The new B787-10 is now operating selected flights to Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur for crew training before its introduction on the Japan and Australia scheduled services.
