British Airways has begun flying its Airbus A380s from London Heathrow to Singapore thrice weekly. Following those to Los Angeles, Washington DC, Hong Kong, and Johannesburg, itâ€™s the flag carrierâ€™s fifth route to be serviced by the superjumbo, and itâ€™s off to a glamorous start. For its launch, the carrier flew Gwyneth Paltrow to Singapore, where she inaugurated the service by posing in a business class seat seemingly floating in the rooftop infinity pool of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. It was the actressâ€™ first trip to Singapore, and she hailed the location of her photo shoot as â€śstunning,â€ť and admittedly took to Singaporeâ€™s signature chili crab dish as well.
The service currently operates the London-bound BA11 portion of the route on Wednesdays, Fridays, Sundays and the Singapore-bound BA12 flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. British Airways also flies from London to Singapore four times weekly with its Boeing 747-400 aircraft and from London to Sydney via Singapore daily with its Boeing 777-300ER.
