Singapore Airlines to launch medium-haul A350-900 to Adelaide in Dec 2018, Brisbane named as second destination

Singapore Airlines currently operates the A350-900 (long-haul) to various destinations, and soon-to-be-launched A350-900 (ultra long-haul) for its non-stop services to North America.


With the B787-10 slowly replacing the A330-300 on regional routes, Singapore Airlines will be introducing the A350-900 (medium-haul) aircraft to complement the B787-10 on these regional routes. Starting from 17 Dec 2018, the airline will deploy the A350-900 (medium-haul) aircraft between Singapore and Adelaide, subject to regulatory approval.


Similar to the B787-10, the A350-900 (medium-haul) will only have two cabin classes. It will be fitted with 40 Business Class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, featuring the airline’s latest regional Business Class product, and 263 seats in Economy Class in a 3-3-3 configuration.


The aircraft will also feature the latest Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system with a new user interface designed to further enhance the IFE experience.

According to AusBT, Singapore Airlines will also be deploying the new A350-900 (medium-haul) aircraft to Brisbane from 2019. The dates have not yet been released, and the airline has not stated which of the existing flights will be replaced with the new aircraft.
