Singapore Airlines has launched a new service between Singapore and Hong Kong using Airbus A380 superjumbos.
From July 9, 2009 Singapore Airlines will operate a daily service between the two major Asian hubs, using A380 aircraft with a capacity of over 450 passengers in a three-class configuration.
Flight SQ 856 departs from Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 3 at 09:50 and arrives at Hong Kong International Airport at 13:30. The return flight, SQ 861, leaves Hong Kong at 16:00 and lands in Singapore at 19:40.
Singapore Airlines reports that the A380 has proven exceptionally popular with its customers, with high load factors on all the routes it serves. System-wide, Singapore Airlines has flown more than 1.4 million customers on its A380s, which also serve Sydney, London, Tokyo, and Paris.
