Singapore Airlines (SIA) will offer A350 services on its popular Singapore–Hong Kong route for a temporary period starting later this month.
The A350 will serve the short-haul SQ856/861 flights from April 27 to May 8 as part of a crew familiarisation process, before the aircraft is deployed on long-haul routes.
The aircraft is currently serving the short-hop flight from Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta.
Flight times will remain the same, with SQ856 departing Singapore at 0955 and arriving in Hong Kong at 1355. The return service on flight SQ861 will take off at 1540 before touching back down in Singapore at 1935.
Business class on the A350
The A350 features a three-class configuration, with 42 seats in business, 24 in premium economy and 187 in economy. Long-haul services for the aircraft will begin on May 9, when it begins serving daily flights to Amsterdam. This will be followed by Dusseldorf on July 21.
