Singapore Airlines has started a second daily A380 service from Melbourne.
Flight SQ217 will arrive in Melbourne from Singapore at 19.15hrs and SQ218 will depart at 00.05hrs. Both flights will be operated by the all-upper deck Business class version of Singapore Airlines’ A380 fleet.
Singapore Airlines says it was the first airline to offer a daily A380 service from Melbourne (in September 2009) and is the first airline to offer a double-daily A380 service, making Singapore Airlines the largest international A380 operator from Melbourne.

Singapore Airlines’ regional vice president South-West Pacific Subhas Menon said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our latest product to our customers inMelbourne. Offering the convenience of same day travel to London, Tokyo and Hong Kong, as well as early morning arrivals into Paris, Frankfurt or Bangkok, will continue to ensure that Singapore Airlines is in the best position to meet demand from Melbourne.”
Singapore Airlines claims it is Australia’s largest foreign carrier and currently operates 105 weekly services from the following cities:
