History Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines used to name its planes. What were they all called?

Until the mid-2000s, Singapore Airlines assigned a name to each of its aircraft types. Take a step back in time as we remind you what they all were.

If you’ve been flying (or following) Singapore Airlines for at least the last couple of decades then one thing you’ll probably remember, which you certainly don’t see anymore, is a name adorning the forward fuselage of the aircraft you are about to board.

The policy of giving a unique ‘mark’ to each aircraft type in the fleet, popular with aircraft enthusiasts and many passengers alike, started to be abandoned in 2003/04 under the stewardship of (then-new) CEO Chew Choon Seng.
