Singapore Airlines Fleet: August 2019

SQ A330 Tail (Singapore Airlines)

Welcome to our monthly #avgeek update, where we cover the latest movements and upcoming changes across the 120-strong fleet of Singapore Airlines passenger aircraft. In July we waved goodbye to three more A330s being returned to their respective leasing companies, as more brand new A350 aircraft joined the fleet.

Late July saw the return of 3-class Airbus A350s, with the delivery of 9V-SMV. A further four such aircraft will arrive over the next few months to support the new non-stop Seattle flight, plus a long-awaited switch to the A350 on the Istanbul route and no doubt some other equipment swap announcements to come.

We’ll begin with the usual fleet overview. There were 130 registered aircraft in the Singapore Airlines fleet as reported by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) on 31st July 2019, plus an additional delivery since then.

Our monthly update looks at how the aircraft are distributed across the fleet, which are in active service and which are set for disposal.
