Singapore - Singapore Airlines has announced that it ferried its last three Boeing 777-200ERs to the aircraft storage facility in Alice Springs, Australia.

According to the initial plan, these planes were supposed to stay in service by the end of this year, however, the ongoing global crisis forced the Asian carrier to backdate this plan.

“Due to the significant drop in demand as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak the retirement of these aircraft have been brought forward and they will not be returning to operation for Singapore Airlines,” 

said the airline.

The aircraft first joined the SIA's fleet in 1997. The airline received four Boeing 777-200ERs that year. This number reached 46 overtime (52% of the SIA fleet). Between 2004 and 2009, the 777-200ERs acted as the workhorse of Singapore Airlines.

The airline's remaining 777 fleet consists of 27 777-300ERs and five 777-300s. SIA also has 20 Boeing 777-9 jets on order, the newest generation widebody jet of the American planemaker.
