Singapore Airlines A380s adopt special livery to celebrate Singapore’s Golden Jubilee

Singapore Airlines is celebrating the nation's 50th anniversary by having two themed Airbus A380s in a special livery, which features a 10m-tall and 47m-long Singapore flag-themed design on both sides of the fuselage. The official SG50 logo is displayed on the two inboard engines.

The first aircraft with the commemorative livery will take to the skies in early June and the second in July. The A380s will be in the livery until the end of 2015, with the aircraft serving Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Sydney and Zurich routes.

“Singapore Airlines' success is closely tied to the success of Singapore. What better way to celebrate SG50 than by proudly flying the national flag around the world on the world's largest aircraft," said Singapore Airlines CEO, Mr. Goh Choon Phong.

A special A380 Charity Flight was recently operated on which some 300 beneficiaries of Community Chest experienced a three-hour flight. Beneficiaries include children with special needs, adults with disabilities, as well as disadvantaged elderly and families, many of whom have never had the opportunity to take a flight.

In addition, Singapore Airlines is also organising an art competition, in conjunction with an Open House of the Airline's training facilities. The theme of the competition is “Celebrating SG 50 with SIA: Growing with the Nation". More information can be seen at www.SIAopenhouse.com.
