Singapore Airlines doubles the number of A350-900 with an order for additional 20 aircraft

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has firmed up an order for 20 A350-900 and 5 A380. The deal was completed in 2012 and follows an agreement in October 2012.

The new A350 XWB order sees Singapore Airlines double its backlog for the all-new aircraft to 40. The A350-900s will be used by the airline on both medium and long haul routes.

“This second repeat order from one of the largest A380 operators today is a great endorsement” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers, Airbus. “We’re also delighted that Singapore Airlines are demonstrating equal confidence in the A350. With both these aircraft, Singapore Airlines will have the most modern, most comfortable and most efficient fleet the market can offer.”

The A350 XWB gathered 582 orders from 34 customers.
