Singapore Airlines receives sixth Airbus A380

SINGAPORE, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines (SIAL.SI), the world’s biggest carrier by stock market value, said on Thursday it has received its sixth A380 superjumbo from planemaker Airbus EAD.PA.

Singapore Air said it will put the latest A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, on a second daily flight between Singapore and London.

Airbus had said on Monday it is sticking to its target of delivering 12 of its A380 superjumbo aircraft by the end of the year, after a French newspaper reported the programme was facing further delays. [ID:nLF420944]
