Singapore Airlines is making a number of adjustments to its A380 services over the winter period.
The carrier will double the number of superjumbo flights to twice daily on both the Hong Kong and Tokyo Narita routes between December 28, 2012 and March 24, 2013.
This will increase competition for Cathay Pacific on the Hong Kong-Singapore route, as the carrier does not operate the superjumbo.
The extra Hong Kong A380 service will also continue onto San Francisco during the same period, bringing SIA’s superjumbo to the Californian city for the first time.
Melbourne will also see A380 services increased, with two of SIA’s three daily flights served with the superjumbo from August 16 (up from the current daily service).
But to free up the extra A380 aircraft needed for these changes, the carrier’s Singapore-Frankfurt-New York will be downgraded to a B777-300ER between December 27 and March 24.
