Singapore Airlines deploying more A380s to Australia, but axing the type from Frankfurt and New York

Singapore Airlines will reinstate its Airbus A380s on flights between Changi and Melbourne next year, while also doubling down on superjumbos to Sydney, but the popular Frankfurt / New York route will sadly get downgraded to the Boeing 777-300ER.

With a growing fleet of new and refitted Airbus A380s, and a recent announcement of the type’s withdrawal from the Delhi route, we’ve been eagerly awaiting news of new cities for the carrier’s flagship superjumbos in the weeks and months ahead.


Singapore Airlines has now confirmed that it will deploy its Airbus A380s on more Australia routes from May 2023, with a return of the type to the Melbourne route and a restoration of twice daily service to and from Sydney with the latest cabin products on board.

Unfortunately the news also means the aircraft type will no longer feature on the airline’s flagship Singapore – Frankfurt – New York flights from mid-May next year, with that service downgauging to the four-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which is bad news for those booked in the Suites cabin.
