Prior to the launch of services to Perth, the 787-10s will be operated on selected flights to Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur for crew training purposes, before the first scheduled service to Osaka in May 2018.

The first aircraft in Singapore Airlines’ livery completed its flight testing at Boeing’s North Charleston, South Carolina production facility on 9 February 2018.

Singapore Airlines will be the world’s first airline to operate the 787-10 and has 49 firm orders for this aircraft type. The Airline will take delivery of its first 787-10 from Boeing in March 2018.

Measuring 68 metres in length, the 787-10 is the longest variant of Boeing’s Dreamliner range of aircraft, which are constructed using technologically advanced lightweight composite materials.

In addition to the 49 firm orders for 787-10s, the Airline has a firm order with Boeing for 20 777-9s, which are due for delivery from the 2021/22 financial year.
