Singapore Airlines to replace Boeing B777 with B787-10 on Delhi-Singapore route

Mumbai: Singapore Airlines (SIA) today said it will deploy the latest Boeing 787-10 aircraft on the New Delhi-Singapore route from October, replacing the existing B777-200. The inaugural Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner flight will depart from the New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport on 28 October, SIA said in a release.

SIA was the world’s first airline to take delivery of Boeing’s newest Dreamliner variant in March and will also be the first to fly it to India, the release said. The airline currently has six B787-10 in the fleet.

The Far-east Asian carrier at present operates two daily flights to the national capital. Of the two, one flight is operated by Boeing 777-200, while the other one is catered by the Airbus A380. The introduction of the new aircraft on the route will come along with the winter schedule of airlines in the country, which begins from the last week of October and goes up to the last week of March.
