Singapore Airlines’ A350 inaugural flight from Manchester lands at Bush Airport
Jan 19, 2017: Singapore Airlines has landed its first Airbus A350 at George Bush Intercontinental Airport on January 17.
Serving the route from Houston to Manchester, England and on to Singapore, the twin-jet featuring Singapore Airlines’ new three-class cabin (business, premium economy and economy) can seat up to 366 passengers, and replaces the 278-passenger Boeing B777-300 Extended Range aircraft originally used for the route.
“The introduction of A350-900 into the fleet of aircraft serving Bush Intercontinental Airport continues to show the commitment our airline partners are making to Houston,” said Ted Kitchens, general manager, Bush Airport.
Singapore Airlines and Houston Airports celebrated the launch of the airline’s new route between Houston and England in October 2016, when the inaugural flight between Manchester Airport in England and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston touched down. That new route replaced the previous Houston to Singapore via Moscow operation.
“Singapore Airlines is proud to be the first airline to bring the A350 to Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport,” said Dennis Teo, Area manager, South Central division for Singapore Airlines, when the debut of the A350 was announced in December.
Singapore Airlines offers five weekly flights from Houston to Manchester, each with continuing service to Singapore Changi Airport, where travelers have convenient connection options to more than 50 destinations throughout Asia. Travelers flying Singapore Airlines to Manchester also can take advantage of new connections to Paris, Milan and Amsterdam via the carrier’s partnership with Flybe, providing seamless single-ticketing to these three popular European destinations.
