Singapore Airlines (SIA) will introduce a fourth daily flight between Singapore and London Heathrow from October.
SIA currently operates three flights per day between Singapore and London Heathrow, all using its Airbus A380s. The additional flight, which will have a late-night departure from Singapore, will be operated with a Boeing 777-300ER.
The increase in frequency will be carried out progressively, starting the week of 9 September when the number of flights per week will rise from 21 to 25 per week. The full complement of 28 weekly flights will take effect from the week of 21 October.
“We have been looking for opportunities to increase our London flights for many years and are pleased that we can now do so, to provide even more travel options to our customers,” said SIA’s Executive Vice President of Commercial, Mak Swee Wah.
“Not only are London and Singapore popular destinations in their own right, the additional flights will allow for more convenient connections beyond London to other points in Europe, and beyond Singapore to other points within Asia and South West Pacific,” he added.
