Singapore Airlines Fleet & Storage Report: October 2020

This month Singapore Airlines took its first new aircraft deliveries since February 2020, with not just one but four Airbus A350 Regionals winging their way from Toulouse in the last couple of weeks. Meanwhile another Airbus A330 was returned off lease and the operating schedule of revenue services occupied around half the passenger fleet, based on data for the last two weeks.

The airline continues to focus operation on its latest and most fuel efficient Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 aircraft types, with minimal Boeing 777 flying and other variants in either temporary or long-term storage.

That said, a few Airbus A380s have been reactivated for the airline’s latest on-ground activities, repurposed as restaurants and accommodating around 3,500 of the airline’s fans lucky enough to secure a ticket for the events running over two weekends.

In terms of the flying fleet though, five aircraft types remained firmly out of service in October, including all Airbus A330s and Airbus A380s.
