The flight details
Bookings for this flight will be rolled out over the next few weeks on the airline website, via agents and other airline booking sites. The new flights are SQ201 and 202 – details below
- SQ202 departs Sydney daily 06:45 arriving Singapore 11:50 (Boeing 777-300ER)
- SQ201 departs Singapore daily 19:10 arriving Sydney 05:55 + 1 day (Airbus A350)
This now means there are the following daily services to Singapore by SIA out of Sydney:
- 06:45 Boeing 777-300ER (new service – see 21:10 flight below for configuration)
- 09:05 Airbus A350-900 long-haul (42 Business Class 1-2-1; 24 Premium Economy 2-4-2; 187 Economy 3-3-3)
- 12:15 Airbus A380 (6 First Suites 1-1; 78 Business Class 1-2-1; 44 Premium Economy 2-4-2; 343 Economy Class 3-3-3)
- 16:10 Airbus A380 (as above)
- 21:10 Boeing 777-300ER (4 First Class 1-2-1; 48 Business Class 1-2-1; 28 Premium Economy 2-4-2; 184 Economy 3-3-3)
All those daily flights mean there will be a total of 12,000 weekly seats servicing Sydney. All are direct fights, not like that sneaky via Canberra flight pre-pandemic.
Adelaide gets a boost as to
Singapore Airlines is also boosting Adelaide to ten weekly flights from 27 October 2024. Only three times per week on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday for the new SQ276/SQ277 flights. These join the current daily SQ278/SQ279 flights. All services will use Boeing 787-10 aircraft. They have 36 of Singapore Airlines’ regional business class seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, plus 301 Economy seats 9 across, in a 3-3-3 configuration.
Normally, the departure time of the flight is the major consideration when booking, but with such a selection of aircraft, you may want to consider what seats and classes are available on the three different aircraft operating the route. The A380 and the 777 are the only flights with first class, and the A380 is the only one with the new First Class Suites. Just remember that the Airbus A350 comes in two versions, one with long-range, and the other with regional business class seats The SQ201 flight on an A350 has the long-range Business Class seat which is usually preferred over the regional version.
In another sign that flying is returning to something like pre-pandemic levels, Singapore Airlines is adding an additional daily flight to Sydney and three flights per week to Adelaide. Although you are stuck with a 787-10 to Adelaide, in Sydney you can choose from an A380, B777 or A350, with various configurations. When booking make sure you are flying on your preferred aircraft with your preferred seat version.
