Singapore Airlines, the launch customer of the 787-10 Dreamliner, has announced the first long haul route in which the longest variety of the 787 Dreamliner series will operate. SIA will start deliveries of the 787-10 Dreamliner late-March for an early April inaugural service to KLIA & BKK.
Before this, Singapore Airlines will operate the shorthaul 787-10 flights to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Bangkok, Thailand for flight crew training purposes. I’m very much looking forward to see which other routes SIA will put the 787-10s on, hopefully SIN - MEL!
Starting 3rd May 2018, SIA will have its first inaugural flight of the 787-10 to one of Japan’s largest cities, Osaka Kansai. This will be a 6h 45 min flight across the Asian continent.
For information on routes that are available to be booked NOW (SIN-KUL/BKK/KIX):
Pretty surprised that Jakarta isn’t on the list. As Jakarta was listed as one of the first destinations to get their A350s alongside KL. Oh well, maybe I have to see more old 772s serving this route abit longer I guess 🙁
I was about to look for a flight served by 78J if Jakarta would make to the list during SQTF this February.
Just noticed their configuration, 36 Business with 301 Economy? That’s a huge improvement in terms of capacity compared to their current 772s and A330s
