Dusseldorf has become the third German city in Singapore Airlines’ route network, with the arrival of flight SQ338 from Singapore this morning.

The new route is being served with the latest-generation aircraft to join the Singapore Airlines fleet, the Airbus A350-900. The first service departed Singapore Changi Airport at around 11:40 p.m. local time July 21 and arrived at Dusseldorf Airport at around 6:20 a.m. local time July 22, after a flight of nearly 13 hours.

Dusseldorf will initially be served three times per week. Singapore Airlines also serves the German cities of Frankfurt and Munich.

Customers departing from Singapore were treated to an assortment of food and beverages including champagne at a special boarding gate event held to commemorate the inaugural flight. They also received an exclusive goodie bag containing a commemorative certificate, a batik luggage belt with weighing scale and a wooden miniature silhouette of the Dusseldorf skyline.

Upon arrival at Dusseldorf Airport, the aircraft received a water canon salute.
With advanced technology and superior operating efficiency, the A350-900 offers customers an improved traveling experience with features such as higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra wide body and lighting designed to reduce jetlag.

Singapore Airlines took delivery of its first A350-900 in March and now has four of the aircraft type in its fleet, with another 63 on firm order. The initial batch of A350s is being fitted with 253 seats in three classes, seating 42 customers in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class and 187 in Economy Class.

The A350 will form a key part of the Airline’s fleet in the years ahead, allowing for the introduction of new services such as non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco from October, helping to boost connectivity to and through the Singapore hub.
