Singapore Airlines Fleet: June 2021

Singapore Airlines took delivery of another Airbus A350 this month, in addition to bringing home two more Boeing 737 MAXs for refit in anticipation of clearance to fly the jets again soon.

In June 2021 Singapore Airlines took delivery of another factory fresh Airbus A350 Long Haul aircraft, ahead of increased flying for the type in mid-July to Manchester and Rome, while also returning another pair of Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft from desert storage for long-awaited cabin refit work.

The demise of SilkAir, which operated its final passenger flight in early May 2021, has also meant SIA taking three further Boeing 737-800s onto its books, though these will not join the operating fleet and are currently for sale.

Overall the airline is now actively using 90 of its passenger aircraft, its highest total since COVID-19 decimated schedules, under a positive outlook with travel restrictions set to be relaxed as Singapore residents progressively become vaccinated against COVID-19 in the coming weeks and months.

All the airline’s remaining Airbus A330s, Boeing 777-200s, Boeing 777-200ERs and Boeing 777-300s will not be returning to the fleet after COVID-19, in addition to seven older Airbus A380s and four Boeing 777-300ERs.

These have removed these from the ‘In Service’ column.

Additionally, all currently registered Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft, which are awaiting re-certification, are excluded from the ‘In Service’ column for the time being.

This reflects a future fleet of 115 aircraft, plus future near-term deliveries of Airbus A350s, Boeing 737-8 MAXs and Boeing 787-10s.
