The first scheduled destination for Singapore Airlines' new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner is Osaka (KIX) and services are expected to begin officially in May 2018. Singapore Airlines will become the world's first airline to operate the brand new 787-10 and the national flag carrier has 49 of these on firm order - the first aircraft is due for delivery from Boeing's North Charleston, South Carolina production facility in March 2018.
