The still unnamed low-cost carrier debuting next year by Singapore Airlines will operate with Boeing 777-200 planes. The plane will be purchased by Singapore Airlines and then have the seating layout reconfigured.
Boeing's 777 and Singapore Airlines have enjoyed working closely for the last 14 years. The new budget airline will serve medium and long-haul routes with a no-frills model. The airline will be managed seperately from Singapore Airlines.
More news about this mysterious cheap airline should be revealed by the end of this year. Commenting on acquiring Boeing 777 planes, the CEO of the new airline, Campbell Wilson, said: "The selection of the initial fleet marks another milestone in the
establishment of the new airline. The process is progressing well for
our launch next year."
