Singapore Airlines A380 First Flight Charity Auction Starts


The Chance To Be Part Of History: A380 First Flight Charity Auction Starts Monday

The Singapore Airlines A380 First Flight Charity Auction begins on Monday, and everyone will have an opportunity to participate in this unprecedented event.
The Singapore Airlines A380 flies its First Flight from Singapore to Sydney on Thursday 25 October and the return leg on Friday 26 October.
A majority of seats on both legs of the First Flight will be auctioned on eBay, the global online marketplace, progressively over two weeks from Monday evening (Singapore time), 27 August 2007.
To mark the launch of the new A380, the starting prices will be:
Economy Class US$3.80 
 Business Class US$38.00
 Singapore Airlines Suites US$380.00
To bid, you will need:
  • An eBay user ID … it’s free and easy to get on (Once you sign up for an eBay user ID,
    you can easily learn how to bid and how the eBay bid system works);
  • The names and passport numbers of those travelling;
  • For bids on packages in the premium classes (Business & Suites), or bids over USD1,000 in Economy Class, pre-qualification will be required.  This ensures bids are not artificially inflated, and gives bidders confidence they are bidding only against genuine and pre-qualified bidders
Prequalification is initiated online. Singapore Airlines’ global auction management agency, Auctionwire, has developed numerous ways for bidders to pre-qualify and lodge security deposits for bids requiring pre-qualification.
All information on packages available, bidder prequalification, how to get an eBay user ID and how to bid in the auction is available on the Singapore Airlines website,
100% of the proceeds of the auction will be donated to charities. They are:
  • One-third to Singapore’s Community Chest
  • One-third split between the Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, both in Sydney
  • One-third to Médecins Sans Frontières, also known as Doctors Without Borders.
