Singapore Airlines (SIA) is adjusting service frequencies to various destinations during its northern summer operating season from March 25 to October 27, in order to match capacity to prevailing demand for travel.
On March 25, Singapore Airlines will introduce an additional daily service to Seoul, increasing frequency to four flights per day from three, including one flight that continues to San Francisco.
Also on March 25, SIA’s service frequency to The Maldives’ capital Male will increase to two flights a day from the current 10 flights per week. The four additional flights will be daytime flights, enabling SIA to offer customers a choice of seven daytime flights and seven nighttime flights per week. Additionally, Mumbai services will be increased to 19 a week from 17.
In the Southwest Pacific region, SIA will increase service frequencies on March 25 and July 2 to points in Australia. From March 25, the carrier will serve Brisbane and Perth 21 times weekly, rather than 19 and 18 times, respectively. On July 2, Adelaide services will increase to 10 times per week from seven.
Meanwhile, from March 25 SIA will reduce frequencies in select markets during the airline’s northern summer schedule. The carrier will reduce Singapore-Moscow-Houston services to five times weekly from daily; Singapore-Munich-Manchester services will decline to six times weekly from daily; and Singapore-Taipei services will fall to 14 round-trips per week from 18.
Singapore Airlines will also restructure some Middle East services during the northern summer season. Its flights to Riyadh, which SIA currently serves via Abu Dhabi, will instead operate via Dubai. This will result in Abu Dhabi being served three times weekly, down from seven times, with flights carrying on to Jeddah.
The airline will continue to serve Dubai with 10 flights a week, four of which will carry on to Riyadh and three to Cairo.
