Singapore Airlines will expand its Indian operations next month with the launch of an additional flight to Ahmedabad.
Effective 26 March 2017, the national carrier will launch a fourth weekly flight to the Gujarati city, with a new Saturday service complementing the existing Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday departures.
Like the existing three weekly flights, the new service will be operated by SIA’s 285-seat, two-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
The outbound flight departs Singapore’s Changi Airport 1840 and arrives in Ahmedabad at 2150. The return service then leaves the Indian city at 2305 and arrives back in Singapore at 0715 the next morning.
“Travel to and from Ahmedabad has steadily increased over the years. Singapore Airlines is pleased to offer an additional frequency to meet the growing market demand. The new service will provide travellers a much sought after weekend departure window, to travel to Singapore and to onward destinations,” said David Lim, SIA’s general manager for India.
As well as Ahmedabad, SIA flies to the Indian cities of Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.
