Singapore Airlines to delay all A380 flights
Singapore, November 4, 2010
Singapore Airlines will delay all flights on its Airbus A380 fleet pending precautionary checks after the same model operated by Qantas Airlines suffered engine failure, an official said on Thursday.
It was not immediately clear how many flights would be affected or for how long.
"Our engine manufacturer Rolls Royce and aircraft manufacturer Airbus have advised us to conduct precautionary technical checks on our A380 aircraft, following today's incident involving another operator's A380," Nicholas Ionides, Singapore Airlines' vice president for public affairs, said in a statement.
"Resulting from this development, Singapore Airlines will be delaying all flights operating our A380 aircraft." - Reuters
