Singapore Airlines operates a hub at Changi Airport and has a strong presence in the Southeast Asia, East Asia, South Asia, and "Kangaroo Route" markets. The company also operates trans-Pacific flights, including the world's two longest non-stop commercial flights from Singapore to Newark and Los Angeles on the Airbus A340-500. The airline announced that it will end the world's longest nonstop flights from Singapore to both Newark and Los Angeles from 23 November 2013 and 20 October 2013, respectively. However, Los Angeles will continue to be served from Singapore via Tokyo-Narita. Singapore Airlines carried around 18 million passengers in 2012, up from 16.9 million in 2011.

Singapore Airlines was the launch customer of Airbus A380, currently the world's largest passenger aircraft. SIA has diversified airline-related businesses, such as aircraft handling and engineering. Its wholly owned subsidiary, SilkAir, manages regional flights to secondary cities with smaller capacity requirements. Subsidiary Singapore Airlines Cargo operates SIA's dedicated freighter fleet, and manages the cargo-hold capacity in SIA's passenger aircraft. SIA has a 49% shareholding in Virgin Atlantic and engages the low-cost carrier sector through its stake in Tiger Airways and wholly owned subsidiary, Scoot. It ranks amongst the top 15 carriers worldwide in terms of revenue passenger kilometres, and 10th in the world for international passengers carried. On 15 December 2010, Singapore Airlines was announced by the International Air Transport Association as the second largest airline in the world by market capitalisation with a worth of 14 billion US dollars. Singapore Airlines is currently an official sponsor of Singapore national football team. The airline has been marketing Singapore Girl as central image to the airline's brand.

Singapore Airlines operates an all wide-body aircraft fleet from four aircraft families: Airbus A330, Airbus A340, Airbus A380, and Boeing 777. In keeping with its policy of maintaining a young fleet, it renews its fleet frequently. The Boeing customer code for Singapore Airline is -12, for example 777-312.

The airline formerly named its fleet according to aircraft type. The Boeing 747-400s were called "Megatop", the Boeing 777s were called "Jubilee" and the Airbus A340-500s were named "Leadership". Names for airliners previously flown by the airline include: "Superbus" for the eight Airbus A300s, "3Ten" for the 23 Airbus A310s, "Celestar" for the 17 Airbus A340-300s, "Super B" for the 23 Boeing 747-200s, and "Big Top" for the 14 Boeing 747-300s. Several of these names were pulled officially from the mid-2000s under then CEO Chew Choon Seng. No official name has since been accorded to the newer A380s which joined the fleet in 2007.

The last 747 was retired on 6 April 2012, with special return flights from Singapore to Hong Kong to commemorate the aircraft's retirement.
