Sydney – Singapore
Qantas will up-gauge its daily QF81/82 Sydney-Singapore service from an Airbus A330 service to an Airbus A380 aircraft between March 4 and March 24, 2018.
As of March 25, it will revert back to an A330 service. As previously announced, Qantas will be rerouting QF1/2 via Singapore as from March 25. This net effect of this is to increase A380 services on the route by 3 weeks.
