SIA to hold A380 delivery flight contest

SIA to celebrate fifth anniversary of A380 with competition

Singapore Airlines has launched a unique contest for “a once-in-a-lifetime chance” to be on the delivery flight of its 19th A380 from Toulouse, France, in early September. The winner of the lucky draw and a guest of his or her choosing will be flown to Airbus’ Toulouse HQ from any point in the SIA network. In Toulouse, the pair will have two nights’ accommodation, a half-day tour of the city, dinners hosted by SIA and Airbus and a tour of Airbus’ production centre. Then they will board the superjumbo for its delivery flight to Singapore.
Travelling on a delivery flight is an experience usually restricted to a small number of cabin and technical crew, as well as a handful of other staff involved in accepting the aircraft. The operational nature of the flight means service is limited, but its exclusive nature offers a sneak peek into the real workings of the airline industry.
