Passengers of Singapore Airlines will now be able to enjoy the charm of Airbus A380 while travelling to the North American destination of Los Angeles. The major Asian airline launched its inaugural A380 flight to Los Angeles via Tokyo on Friday with around 400 passengers on-board.
Singapore Airlines will offer a daily flight to Los Angeles airport on the superjumbo. Being the world's largest passenger jetliner, A380 aircraft is easily the most popular aircraft all across the aviation industry. The popularity of this massive aircraft has meant great business for the Singapore Airlines in the past as it has been recorded that almost every travel route that is being served by A380 witnesses huge passenger traffic.
Bigger aircraft means more economy class seats and more economy class seat means better chance for people to land up with cheap flight tickets. Indeed, the launch of A380 operations on a popular Singapore Airlines route is set to benefit travellers who are on restricted budget and who look for cheap tickets on flight. Furthermore, the better design of A380’s economy class seats ensures better comfort level for the travellers.
In another development, it has been announced that the Singapore Airlines will be expanding its fleet size by leasing 15 new Airbus 330-300 aircrafts. These aircrafts are scheduled to be delivered to the airlines between 2013 and 2015. Singapore Airlines announced that these new aircrafts will be operated in Asia, as well as to some Australian and Middle Eastern destinations.
