SINGAPORE - Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be displaying a new Singapore-flag themed design on the livery of their A380 fleet - the largest aircraft in the world.
The unique livery will cover the exterior of the two Airbus A380 aircraft and travellers will be able to view it until the end of the year on the Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New Delhi, Sydney and Zurich routes.
The first aircraft will take off with the new design in early June and the second in July.
The distinctive design stands at 10-metres tall and 47-metres wide and appears on both sides of the fuselage - the aircraft's main body section. Two inboard engines will carry the official SG50 logo.
Aviation enthusiasts can own a miniature model of the SG50-themed aircraft. There will be a 1:200 and a limited-edition 1:100 scale models available for sale at Krisflyer from July onwards.
The commemorative livery design is just one of the initiatives SIA has for Singapore's Golden Jubilee.
The Singapore carrier started its SG50 activities last year with a charity gala and run which helped raise $2.5 million for Community Chest.
This year, SIA customers flying to Singapore to celebrate SG50 will be able to enjoy special promotions.
From May 20 to July 10, travellers can receive a 50 per cent discount for online Krisflyer redemptions on select destinations for travel within the same period.
SIA and SilkAir will also be giving away 50 flight tickets in a lucky draw.
From May 18 to July 31, 2015, customers who purchase SIA or SilkAir flights and travel within the same period can stand a chance to win an Economy Class ticket to a South-east Asian city in their route network.
