Singapore Airlines is to increase its A380 services to and from London Heathrow Airport, it has been announced.

The airline has said it will add an A380 service on the Singapore-London route on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This extra service will boost the number of A380 flights between the two cities from seven to 11 times a week.

Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines executive vice-president, said: "Our A380 products have been very well received by our customers and loads on the Singapore-London route have been exceptionally encouraging.

"The deployment of another A380 on this route will cater to continual strong demand from customers travelling between Singapore and London."

Last week, a Singapore Airlines A380 flight left Tokyo's Narita Airport for the first time. The aircraft, which had 420 passengers on board, was bound for Singapore.
