Sin­ga­pore Air­lines group will be the first to op­er­ate all the three vari­ants of the Dream­liner. The air­line’s sub­sidiary Scoot al­ready op­er­ates the 787-8 and -9.

Goh Choon Phong, CEO, Sin­ga­pore Air­lines said “It is an honour for us to be the world’s first air­line to take delivery of this amaz­ing air­craft. The 787-10 is a mag­nif­i­cent piece of en­gi­neer­ing and truly a work of art. It will be an im­por­tant el­e­ment in our over­all growth strat­egy, en­abling us to ex­pand our net­work and strengthen our op­er­a­tions. The 787-10 un­der­scores Sin­ga­pore Air­lines’ long­stand­ing com­mit­ment to op­er­ate a mod­ern fleet and marks the start of a new chap­ter in our shared story with Boe­ing.” Kevin McAl­lis­ter, Pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Boe­ing Com­mer­cial Air­planes said “This is a big day for all of us at Boe­ing and for our global sup­plier part­ners. We are thrilled to de­liver the first 787-10 Dream­liner to Sin­ga­pore Air­lines, one of the world’s lead­ing car­ri­ers”.
