New routes for Singapore Airlines’ latest Airbus A380 cabin configurations are closely followed. That’s not surprising, with many of our readers still vying for the chance to experience the airline’s newest closed-door Suites and latest Business Class product with ‘double bed’ options.
In the latest schedule update, SIA has allocated the new A380 configuration to a daily Auckland flight from 25th October 2020, for the published northern winter season.
It’s only the second city in the South West Pacific region, and the longest route on the network outside Europe, to receive the new cabin products.
Singapore Airlines / ANZ on the Auckland route
Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand have been operating flights between Singapore and New Zealand under a joint venture arrangement since 2015.
Recently the two carriers announced a capacity hike on the Singapore to Auckland route during the March to October 2020 period, including some peak season (i.e. Easter) A380 Version 1 deployment in April 2020.
