Singapore - Singapore Airlines is in talks with the airframers Airbus and Boeing for aircraft delivery delays.

"We are in negotiations with aircraft manufacturers to try and adjust our delivery stream for aircraft orders placed in the past, in view of the prevailing market conditions. We need to balance that with the consideration that our fleet renewal programme is an important part of the SIA Group's strategy for long term sustainability and industry leadership,"

the Singaporean operator said.

The carrier did not reveal further details regarding which aircraft types and the number of units that it wants to defer. Singapore Airlines currently has firm orders for 19 Airbus A350-900s, 20 Boeing 777-9s, and 29 Boeing 787-10s.


Its low-cost subsidiary, Scoot has firm orders for 30 Airbus A320neo, six A321neo, three Boeing 787-8s, and two Boeing 787-9s, while the full-service regional carrier, SilkAir has orders for 31 Boeing 737-8s.

Singapore Airlines owns the bulk of its fleet except for seven out of its eight A330-300s and four out of its nineteen A380-800s, which are on operating dry-leases. Its subsidiaries have a roughly equal balance of owned and leased aircraft - Silk Air owns 14 aircraft and leases 18, while Scoot owns 28 and leases 23.
