SINGAPORE - A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 will take part in the National Day Parade (NDP) aerial flypast on August 9. This is the first time SIA will be participating in the NDP flypast.

The public will be able to view the A380 in the aerial flypast for the first time during the Preview Show on August 1.

The aircraft will be in a special livery, featuring a 10m-tall and 47m-long Singapore flag-themed design on both sides of the fuselage, with the official SG50 logo on the inboard engines. The NDP 2015 'Majulah Singapura - Our Golden Jubilee' logo will also be featured on the underside.

It will make its flypast over the Marina Bay area at the closing of the vintage parade segment, where 20 Singapore Girls will also be seen riding on trishaws, reminiscent of past Singapore Airlines advertisements.

"Singapore Airlines' success is closely linked to that of Singapore, and like all Singaporeans, we look forward to celebrating the nation's birthday," said Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong.

Singapore Airlines will have two aircraft in the special livery through the end of this year, serving Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New Delhi, Shanghai, Sydney and Zurich routes.
