Singapore Airlines will operate a daily A350 service between Singapore and Melbourne.
According to airlineroute.net, the Star Alliance member will deploy its fuel-efficient aircraft on the SQ207/208 flights from September 1 to October 22.
The two services are currently operated by the B777-200, which features a two-class configuration with 26 seats in business and 245 in economy. The A350 will instead offer a three-class configuration, with 42 seats in business, 24 in premium economy and 187 in economy.
In terms of product differences, the B777-200 sports the older long-haul seats found on SIA’s A380.
The A350 instead features the new seats found on the refitted B777-300ER, with a slightly narrower width but improved in-seat amenities such as touchscreen IFE, modern connectivity panels and access to wifi.
Service times will remain unchanged. Flight SQ207 departs Singapore at 0745 and arrives in Melbourne at 1710. The return flight, SQ208 takes off from Melbourne at 1825, before touching back down in Singapore at 0015 the following day.
