Singapore Airlines Fleet: May 2019

SQ SRJ Tail (Edwin Leong)

While engine issues continue to keep two of Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 787-10s out of action, it was generally a more settled month for the fleet towards the end of April.

We learned of the planned departure of at least five more A330s this year, but perhaps the biggest news is a reshuffle of the upcoming A350 delivery allocation to include five aircraft in the standard 3-class configuration, in a mix of otherwise regionally-configured aircraft.

You can read on to learn more about that, but we’ll start with the usual fleet overview. There were 125 registered aircraft in the Singapore Airlines fleet as reported by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) on 30th April 2019. Additionally one new aircraft was delivered since that date, and is therefore reflected in our analysis.

As always, we look at how these planes are distributed across the fleet, which are in active service and which are set for disposal.
