Second A-380 for Singapore Airlines
The second production Airbus A380 (MSN005) was handed over to Singapore Airlines on 11th January in line with the latest delivery schedule. Equipped with four Rolls Royce Trent 900 engines, the second aircraft for the first A380 operator follows the delivery of the first A380 (MSN003) that took place on 15th October 2007.
This happened the same day the first Singapore Airlines`s A-380 suffered a little incident when it was being towed by a truck.
The second aircraft is fitted with the same spacious and luxurious cabin-interior Singapore Airlines revealed on the occasion of the delivery of their first A380, also featuring 471 seats in three classes.
Singapore Airlines`s second A380 will join the first aircraft, which has been operating a reliable daily scheduled service between Singapore and Sydney since 28th October, operating around 15 hours per day with a 100 per cent technical reliability for over two months to the satisfaction of the airline and the passengers alike.
