First Airbus-350s of Singapore Airlines to land at KIA
Singapore Airlines’ first Airbus-350-900 flight to India will land at the Kempegowda International Airport here on Friday. This will be the airline’s upgraded daily SQ 502/503 daily Singapore-Bengaluru service.
This implies a massive capacity increase. In real terms, this would mean an increase of 134 Business Class and 328 Economy Class seats each way per week.
This upgrade comes close on the heels of British Airways announcing that it will fly its Airbus-350 soon from London to Bengaluru. “Bengaluru is the first city in India and fourth destination on our worldwide network to operate the A-350 aircraft,” the airline had said in an official statement.
Currently, the airline operates the 275-seater A-350 only to Cape Town, South Africa, Phoenix in Arizona State and Las Vegas in Nevada, United States.
