The development history
The history of Singapore airlines can be traced back to the establishment of malaya airlines in 1947. On April 2, 1947, the first non-scheduled flight was carried out by the then British colony of singapore-kuala lumpur. Regular flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, ipoh and penang began on May 1. In the 1950s, malaya airlines continued to expand its business, including the introduction of dc-3, dc-4, vicomte vickers, comet and other passenger aircraft.
Malaya, Singapore, sabah and sarawak formed the malayan federation in 1963, which changed the name of malaya airways to Malaysia airlines, which also took over Borneo airlines. Singapore declared independence in 1966 and renamed Malaysia airlines malaya-singapore airlines (MSA). Malaya-singapore airlines expanded rapidly over the next few years, ordering the first Boeing 707 and 737 aircraft. 1968 the barty uniform, designed for the stewardess, was unveiled.
In 1972, cooperation between Singapore and Malaysia's government broke down, splitting Malaysia airlines into two companies, Malaysia airlines and Singapore airlines. Since then, the two companies have developed independently. The split leaves Singapore airlines with 10 original malaysia-singapore airlines Boeing 707 and 737 aircraft, as well as its international routes. Its flight attendants, who are all female and are known as "Singapore girls," have not changed their uniforms.
In the 1970s, Singapore airlines rapidly expanded its business, including opening more new destinations in Asia and the Indian subcontinent and buying Boeing 747s to build up its fleet. In order to provide better ground service, Singapore airlines established a subsidiary company -- Singapore airport terminal service company (SATS). In the 1980s, Singapore airlines expanded its routes to North America and Europe. Singapore airlines was one of the first airlines to buy Boeing 747-400. The first 747-400 was put into service in 1989, and later Boeing 777 and A340 were ordered. Tradewinds, a regional subsidiary of Singapore airlines, became Singapore's second airline in 1989, with Silk Air's Silk Air. By the 1990s Singapore airlines had expanded into South Africa.
In 2000, Singapore airlines announced the order of 25 airbus A3XX (i.e., airbus A380), of which 10 were confirmed orders and 15 were intended orders with a total value (at that time) of $8.6 billion. Singapore airlines is the first airline in the world to operate a A380 superjumbo. Singapore airlines' first A380 was officially put into service on October 25, 2007, leaving Singapore for Sydney (carrying 455 passengers). Boeing 787 was ordered in 2006, and Singapore airlines ordered A330 and A350 to expand its fleet.
