Singapore Airlines Fleet: February 2020

SQ Tails at T3 (Alen Thien SS)

Since our last monthly fleet update, three more of SIA’s Boeing 777-200/-200ERs have ceased flying for the airline, while two brand new Airbus A350 Regional jets have been delivered and entered service, further cementing the 2018 Regional Business Class seat into the airline’s route network on flights of up to 8 hours from Singapore.

Just a year ago the new direct aisle access 2018 seat made up only 28% of Business Class seat types in the regional fleet, a total that has jumped to 66% this month. With more Airbus A330s and older Boeing 777s leaving the fleet this year, it won’t be long before we can finally say farewell to the 2009 Regional Business Class product.

Looking forward to the rest of 2020, 14 new aircraft will be joining the fleet, including four A350 Regionals and three 787-10s.
