Singapore Airlines delays A380 deliveries

Singapore, Sept 3, 2009 (AFP) - Singapore Airlines said Thursday it had agreed with Airbus to defer the delivery of eight A380 superjumbo jetliners by six to 12 months.

The airline, hit hard by the global economic slowdown, already has nine A380s in operation with two more due for delivery in the current financial year.

"The revised schedule will see the 12th aircraft delivered in October 2010 rather than April 2010, while the 19th aircraft will be delivered in January 2012 rather than January 2011," the airline said in a statement.
