Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that Osaka will be the first scheduled destination for its new Boeing 787-10 fleet, with service expected to begin in May 2018. Prior to the introduction of regular flights to Osaka, the 787-10s will be operated on selected Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur flights for crew training purposes.

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. Additionally, the Airline has a firm order for 20 Boeing 777-9s, which are due for delivery from the 2021-2022 financial year.

“We are honored to be the first to fly the highly advanced Boeing 787-10. It will be a key element of SIA’s overall growth strategy, enabling us to expand our network reach and strengthen our operations,” said Tan Kai Ping, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President, Marketing Planning.
