Singapore Airlines air supply logistics signs up for 7 A350F freighters

On December 15, Toulouse-Singapore Airlines air supply logistics signed an agreement of intent with Airbus to select 7 A350F freighters. According to the agreement, the A350F freighter will replace the company's existing 747-400F fleet starting in the fourth quarter of 2025.

"We are honored to see Singapore Airlines' trust in using the A350F freighter to renew its freighter fleet. The A350F is a brand new large freighter in the world. In the same segment of the market, its operational efficiency, low fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission will improve It’s unparalleled.” Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International Operations, Scherer, said, “It’s great to see that Singapore Airlines has recognized the value of the A350F freighter on the basis of the strong partnership we have enjoyed.”

 

Earlier this year, the Airbus board of directors approved the A350 aircraft's derivative cargo aircraft, which aims to meet the upcoming wave of replacement of large cargo aircraft and changing environmental requirements, and shape the future of air supply shipping. The A350F freighter will use the technologically advanced and fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB97 engine.

As a member of the world's leading modern long-range aircraft family, the A350F cargo aircraft and the A350 passenger aircraft version have a high degree of versatility. The A350F freighter has a capacity of 109 tons and will serve all freight markets. The aircraft uses a large main cargo compartment door, and the fuselage length and capacity are optimized for industry standard cargo plates and containers.

 

More than 70% of the fuselage of the A350F freighter is made of advanced materials, which reduces its take-off weight by 30 tons and at least 20% less fuel consumption and emissions compared with its nearest competitor. The A350F freighter will fully meet the enhanced carbon dioxide emission standards that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will take effect in 2027.

 

Singapore Airlines air supply logistics is the world's largest operator of A350 aircraft, with 56 A350 aircraft currently in service. This agreement with Singapore Airlines is the third commitment agreement obtained by the new A350F freighter in the past month.
