Singapore Airlines is to add an additional A380 service on the Singapore-London route on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The world’s largest passenger aircraft will be used to operate flights SQ 318 from Singapore to London Heathrow, and the returning flight, SQ 321.
“Our A380 products have been very well received by our customers, and loads on the Singapore-London route have been exceptionally encouraging. The deployment of another A380 on this route will cater to continual strong demand from customers traveling between Singapore and London,” said Mr Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Marketing and Regions.
The new A380 service between Singapore and London will take effect from 16 July 2008. However, there will be a temporary break in A380 operations on SQ 318 (Singapore-London) and SQ 321 (London-Singapore) from 31 July 2008 to 9 August 2008 inclusive as the aircraft will be deployed to Beijing for a week, to cater for increased demand in the lead-up to the start of the Olympic Games.

The Singapore Airlines A380 is currently flying as SQ322 / SQ317 daily to and from London Heathrow and Singapore featuring new products bringing Travel In A New Light and the Romance of Travel.
The next delivery is scheduled to be July as opposed to June 2008 because of the new slight delays in delivery.
At this juncture, SQ002 / SQ001 will not be getting A380 operations yet.
