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.
The new Boeing 787-10s will be operated on selected Bangkok (BKK) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL) flights for crew training purposes prior to May 2018 and together with this new fleet, Singapore Airlines will also be debuting its highly-anticipated new regional cabin products (check out the current Regional Business Class product!) that will be fitted with 337 seats in a two class cabin - 36 seats in Business and 301 seats in Economy Class.
