The airline explained that this will make it the first Singapore Airlines A380 to return to the skies for long-haul travel, as the airline is gradually rebuilding its network with the gradual resumption of international flights.

Singapore Airlines was the first airline in the world to fly the A380 Superjumbo in October 2007 and the first to fly from the UK in March 2008.

In late 2017, Singapore Airlines launched a multi-million pound cabin upgrade to its A380s.

The Singapore Airlines A380 is configured with 471 seats in four classes with six ‘Singapore Airlines Suites’ and 78 business class seats on the upper deck as well as 44 premium economy class seats and 343 economy class seats on the main deck.

The six suites, designed by Pierrejean Design Studio and manufactured by Zodiac Seats UK, offer ‘unique privacy and luxury, complete with privacy doors and both an independent swivel chair and independent [double] bed’.

Four of the suites can also be combined into double suites for couples traveling together.

The business class seats, designed by the British company JPA Design and manufactured by Jamco, similarly allow for the creation of fully lying flat double beds, all forward-facing and with direct access to all.
