Singapore Airlines today celebrates the first year anniversary of its A350 aircraft flying from Manchester Airport.
The state-of-the-art aircraft premiered on the non-stop Manchester-Houston route on 17 January, 2017 and was the first commercial A350 flight from Manchester Airport, demonstrating Singapore Airlines’ commitment to the North-West region.
The A350 aircraft has been a welcome addition to the Manchester-Houston and Manchester-Singapore routes, launched by Singapore Airlines in October 2017.
The A350 takes advantage of a number of technological advancements which make the aircraft quieter, more efficient and more environmentally friendly. The use of composite structures, a revolutionary wing design and new Rolls Royce engines, combine to improve fuel efficiency by 25 per cent.
