Singapore Airlines increasing frequency in Northern Winter Schedule
22 July 2010 - Singapore Airlines is implementing schedule changes in the Northern Winter period (31 October 2010 – 26 March 2011), which will result in higher frequency on selected routes. The adjustments are in response to further growth in demand for travel.
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. SQ38/SQ37, the All-Business Class flight plying the Singapore-Los Angeles route, and SQ62/61, the service to Moscow and Houston, currently operate five times per week.
Also going daily as previously announced will be flights SQ328/327, Singapore-Munich-Manchester, up from five times a week.
SQ608/609 operating on the Singapore-Seoul route will be operated seven times per week, up from four. This will boost total frequency to and from the South Korean capital to 21 times a week, up from 18 times.
Additional services will also be operated to destinations in Japan. SQ616/615 will operate three times a week between Singapore and Osaka, in addition to the current daily flights between both cities. As previously announced, Tokyo Haneda will join the Singapore Airlines network from 31 October 2010 with twice-daily flights.
The current one-stop flights between Singapore and Istanbul via Dubai will meanwhile be replaced by a non-stop Singapore-Istanbul service. SQ490/491 will operate up to four times per week. A separate Singapore-Dubai service, SQ494/495, will also be introduced at three times per week. As a result Dubai will be served 11 times per week.
The Airline is increasing capacity to Australia with a second daily Airbus A380 service on the Singapore-Sydney route. The second 471-seat A380 service, SQ231/222, will replace the 278-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft which currently operates the flight. Total Singapore-Sydney frequency will be unchanged at four flights per day.
