The Kangaroos Have Some Billion Dollar Company


Alice Springs, Australia

On 26th April, Singapore Airlines sent four Airbus A380s to Alice Springs Airport in Australia.

The dry climate of Alice Springs is excellent for long-term storage; with minimal corrosion occurring at the Singapore base, due to the heat and the humidity.


SilkAir’s fleet of six Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft have been at Alice Springs Airport for more than six months. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more aircraft have been arriving here; including more than 20 from 4 different airlines, Singapore, SilkAir, NokScoot and Scoot.

Asia Pacific Aircraft Storage, located at Alice Springs Airport, has been proposing the site for aircraft storage since the early 2000s.
