SIA to order eight more Boeing 777-300ERs

Singapore Airlines order to support growth plans for years ahead

Deliveries of eight more new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft are scheduled to begin in the 2013-14 financial year. They will be operated by Singapore Airlines on medium- and long-haul routes. The order is valued at $2.3 billion at list prices. Powered by General Electric GE90 engines, the aircraft will join 19 B777-300ERs already in service. They will be configured in a three-class layout featuring the airline’s latest cabin product and service offerings.
The order is in line with Singapore Airlines’ policy of operating a young and modern fleet, which comprises 106 widebody aircraft from both Airbus and Boeing. With the agreement for eight additional B777-300ERs, SIA will have firm purchase or lease orders with the two manufacturers for another 70 aircraft.
