Singapore Airlines will offer a sixth daily flight to Bangkok in March. The airline currently offers five daily flights on the Singapore-Bangkok route. As part of the Northern Summer schedule (27 March 2016 – 29 October 2016), Singapore Airlines will also be increasing the flight frequency to Colombo in Sri Lanka and Milan in Italy.
The added service to Bangkok will meet the growing demand for flights to and from the Thai capital. Bangkok is one of the world’s busiest tourist destinations, with millions of travellers flying in to the city from all over the world. The added service will be run by Airbus A330-300 aircraft, adding nearly 2,000 seats per week on the route.
Flight SQ982 will leave Singapore at 1735hrs and arrive in Bangkok at 1900hrs. The return flight SQ983 will take off from Bangkok at 2005hrs and land in Singapore at 2330hrs (all times local).
Services to the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo will increase to 10 per week from seven. Singapore Airlines will increase Milan flights to six per week from the current five, including two that carry on to Barcelona in Spain.
Also, to handle the spurt in peak season travel demand, five weekly flights will be operated to Rome from 25 June to 30 July 2016, up from the current three flights per week. Frequencies to Sydney will go 35 per week between 23 June and 4 September 2016. Additionally, the Indian city of Ahmedabad, a well known business destination, will be served four times per week between 30 April and 4 June 2016, up from the current three weekly flights. India’s financial capital, Mumbai will have 18 weekly flights from 21 April to 6 June 2016, up from the current 17 flights per week.
Along with the boost in frequencies across several routes, Singapore Airlines will also launch a new flight to Düsseldorf from 21 July 2016. Flights will be operated three times per week with the Airbus A350-900.
