Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that Osaka will be the first scheduled destination for its new Boeing 787-10 fleet, with services expected to begin in May 2018.
SIA will be the world’s first airline to operate the 787-10. SIA has 49 Boeing 787-10s on firm order, with the first aircraft due for delivery from Boeing’s North Charleston, South Carolina production facility in March 2018.
Prior to the introduction of regular services to Osaka, the 787-10s will be operated on selected Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur flights for crew training purposes.
SIA will also debut its highly-anticipated new regional cabin products on its 787-10s, fitted with 337 seats in two classes, with 36 seats in Business Class and 301 seats in Economy Class. More details will be revealed at a later date. (Full Story Here)
