Singapore Airlines brings A380s back to Frankfurt and New York from March

Singapore Airlines A380s with the latest Suites and Business Class cabins will make their debut to and from the USA next year, with daily Singapore - Frankfurt - New York flights from 27th March 2022.

Singapore Airlines is gradually revealing its confirmed flight schedules for the upcoming northern summer season from late March to late October 2022, and there’s one aircraft type most of us have our eyes on wherever it gets deployed – the Airbus A380.

After a two-year gap for SIA’s A380s to and from the USA, the airline has confirmed to TPG that from the start of the summer schedule on 27th March 2022 the daily SQ26/25 service from Singapore to New York via Frankfurt will be operated by the carrier’s Airbus A380, in the latest fit with 2017 cabin products.

“After nearly two years of restrictions, we are seeing tremendous demand for international travel, and that includes premium cabins.”

This aircraft-intensive route will require around three A380s to operate on a daily basis, so we should see at least eight active superjumbos in the schedule for summer 2022.
