Singapore Airlines Fleet: August 2021

Singapore Airlines has sold seven inherited Boeing 737-800s to Virgin Australia, and picked up a few military charter flights this month.

This month we learned that Singapore Airlines has managed to sell seven of its surplus Boeing 737-800 aircraft fairly quickly, with the jets now set to enjoy a new lease of life with Virgin Australia. The aircraft had been inherited by the mainline carrier following a merger with SilkAir earlier this year.


In other news some of the Airbus A350s have been enjoying some extra work for the military, with trips to Idaho, USA and Paya Lebar Air Force Base this month, in addition to their usual duties.

The penultimate Airbus A330 also looks set to make an imminent final departure.
