Singapore Airlines has announced that beginning in early November, it will operate the world’s shortest Airbus A380 route between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
Singapore Airlines has confirmed that A380s will be deployed three times a week on flights SQ106 (SIN-KUL) and SQ105 (KUL-SIN) from November 4 to December 2, 2021.
From November 5 to December 3, the Changi-based airline will also deploy A380s on Singapore Airlines flights SQ126 (SIN-KUL) and SQ125 (KUL-SIN) four times a week. Because the flying distance is only 184 miles, the trip time is less than an hour.
Singapore Airlines generally uses Boeing 737s on this route, but the airline is switching to A380s to familiarise its personnel with the jets after a long absence.
The A380 flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur were planned “for operational considerations,” according to an airline representative.
The airline is only selling Business and Economy class seats, despite the fact that the superjumbos are configured with the much-lauded Suite’s First Class.
Singapore Airlines is anticipating the return of its A380s on Singapore-London flights in mid-November.
