Air France's Singapore flights to use smaller Boeing plane

Air France will start to serve its Shanghai route three times every week with the Airbus SAS double-decker A380s even as it took superjumbos off its Paris-Singapore route to move these to the China route.

Air France spokesperson Ulli Gendrot said that the airline's Singapore flights will now be using smaller Boeing planes. Gendrot added that it is the policy of Air France-KLM to utilise its planes while considering demand and market situation.

Air France serves Singapore seven times weekly, currently four times weekly with A380s and three times a week with Boeing 777-300s.

“Air France-KLM (AF)’s policy is to ensure optimum use of its planes in adapting its offer to take into account demand and market context,” said Gendrot.
