Singapore Airlines has adjusted its schedule to offer higher service frequencies on a variety of routes during its northern-winter schedule period from October 31 to March 26.
The adjustments are in response to further growth in demand for travel, Singapore Airlines says.
Singapore Airlines’ capacity to and from Russia and the United States will increase, with flights on the Singapore-Los Angeles and Singapore-Moscow-Houston sectors operating daily. SIA’s SQ38/SQ37, the all-Business Class round-trip plying the Singapore-Los Angeles route, and SQ62/SQ61, the airline’s round-trip service to Moscow and Houston, currently operate five times per week.
Also operating daily will be flights SQ328/SQ327, Singapore-Munich-Manchester, up from five times a week.
Round-trip SQ608/SQ609 on the Singapore-Seoul route will operate seven times a week, up from four. This will boost Singapore Airlines’ total frequency to and from the South Korean capital to 21 times a week, up from 18 times.
The carrier will also operate additional services to destinations in Japan. The SQ616/SQ615 round-tripwill operate three times a week between Singapore and Osaka, in addition to SIA’s current daily flights between both cities. Tokyo Haneda will join the Singapore Airlines network from October 31, with the airline operating twice-daily flights to the near-downtown Tokyo airport (which is also Tokyo’s biggest airport).
SIA will replace its current one-stop flights between Singapore and Istanbul via Dubai with a non-stop Singapore-Istanbul service. The SQ490/SQ491 round-trip will operate up to four times a week. The airline will also introduce a separate Singapore-Dubai service, SQ494/SQ495, operating three times a week. As a result SIA will serve Dubai 11 times per week.
The airline is also increasing capacity to Australia, offering a second daily Airbus A380 service on the Singapore-Sydney route. The second 471-seat A380 round-trip, SQ231/SQ222, will replace the 278-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft which currently operates the flight. Singapore Airlines’ total Singapore-Sydney service frequency will be unchanged at four flights a day.
