Feb 9 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines Ltd said on Tuesday it would defer over S$4 billion ($3.01 billion) of spending on Airbus SE and Boeing Co planes after reaching agreements with the aircraft manufacturers to delay deliveries.

It will convert 14 of its Boeing 787-10 orders to 11 additional 777-9s to meet its fleet needs beyond the financial year ending in March 2026, the airline said in a statement. ($1 = 1.3267 Singapore dollars) (Reporting by Jamie Freed in Sydney; editing by Jason Neely)
