Singapore Airlines is looking to increase services to Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai, once the allotment of India seats is worked out by authorities. Once that is done, those seeking tickets for India travel will have more number of options. 


As per media reports, Singapore Airlines is looking to boost its frequency of flights to Indian destinations. Offering more options of tickets to fliers on India-Singapore route, SIA and its subsidiaries are looking to increase flights to the cities of Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai. The rise will come once Singaporean government works out allotment of India seats.

Currently, SIA runs three flights from Delhi and two each from Hyderabad and Chennai per week. The frequencies are likely to be increased and resultantly more seats will be available for those seeing tickets for these Indian cities. The carrier, however, will not be able to increase its services to Mumbai, India’s financial capital.

“We won’t be able to increase any flights to Mumbai, which is second biggest market for us, as SIA is already utilising maximum permitted seats from the city,” an airline representative said.

SIA along with its subsidiary SilkAir and low-cost affiliate unit Tiger Airways are making use of more than 70 per cent of capacity between India and Singapore. Collectively, the three airlines offer tickets for approximately 29,000 one-way weekly seats to India.

On the other hand, Indian carriers – Air India, Jet Airways, Air India Express and IndiGo – are offering tickets for about 11,000 one-way weekly seats to Singapore.

Presently, SIA and SilkAir provide tickets for seating on 98 weekly flights to 11 destinations in India. Tiger Airways, which is partially owned by SIA, offers tickets for 39 weekly flights to six cities in India.
