9V-SKE (F-WWSG) (c/n 010), pictured on the final assembly line at Toulouse in May 2006, is the fifth A380-841 destined for service with Singapore Airlines. To celebrate its role as the inaugural A380 operator, SIA has launched a dedicated website: www.a380.singaporeair.com.
Singapore Airlines' Boeing 777-200 fleet comprises 15 long- range -212ER variants (acquired to replace 17 Airbus A340-300 'Super Bs' taken by Boeing in part exchange), including 9V-SVC, pictured on approach to land. SIA also operates some 31 standard-range 777-212s.
