Singapore Airlines Fleet: April 2020

In a slight change to our usual monthly fleet update, we focus on which Singapore Airlines aircraft are still flying in April 2020, given the ongoing COVID-19 cancellations

As the first SIA aircraft are flown to long-term storage and the COVID-19 pandemic produces a skeleton flying network, this month we take a slightly different angle on our regular Singapore Airlines fleet update, focusing in detail on the latest trend across the industry – aircraft storage.

With five SIA aircraft types taken out of service altogether this month, including all Airbus A330s and Airbus A380s, the interesting fact is that among many other aircraft types the majority of aircraft are still flying.

We also take a look at why the airline is favouring planes with the biggest cargo holds in the current climate.
