Singapore Airlines expands capacity to New York

Airline to fly A380 on Singapore-Frankfurt-New York from 15 January

Singapore Airlines has announced that it will fly the world’s largest aircraft, the Airbus A380, on the Singapore-Frankfurt-New York route from 15 January 2012. Frankfurt and New York will be the airline’s ninth and tenth destinations to receive the superjumbo, New York being the second destination in North America. More than 5.6 million customers have so far flown on Singapore Airlines’ A380s since the inaugural flight to Sydney in October 2007.
The daily A380 flights will replace a daily Boeing 747-400 service to JFK via Frankfurt, representing a daily increase of 25% in seat capacity. Exclusively available on the A380 are the Singapore Airlines Suites, each of which features a sliding door, adjustable roller blinds, adjustable leather seat and full-sized bed. Singapore Airlines currently has 13 A380s in service and a further six on firm order.
