Singapore Airlines commenced operation of Boeing B787-10 Dreamliner between Colombo and Singapore on 27 March 2023.
Constructed using lightweight composite materials, the 68-metre B787-10 is the longest variant of Boeing’s Dreamliner range. Passengers can look forward to a comfortable journey, experiencing large electronically dimmable windows, low cabin altitude, generous headroom, and a quiet and smooth ride.
With exceptional operating efficiency and advanced technology, the B787-10 aircraft is also environmentally friendly with a small carbon footprint. The operation of a young fleet of new generation aircraft reaffirms Singapore Airlines’ long-standing commitment towards sustainability.
Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 787-10s are fitted with 337 seats across two classes (36 lie-flat seats in Business Class on 1-2-1 seating configuration and 301 seats in Economy Class on 3-3-3 seating configuration).
Compared to the previously operated Airbus A350, the Boeing B787-10 brings 34 more seats and additional cargo capacity, contributing to tourism in Sri Lanka and facilitating imports and exports.
