Singapore Airlines opened its newest European route, linking by a non-stop flight Singapore to Düsseldorf. The new service is being served with the latest-generation aircraft to join the Singapore Airlines fleet, the Airbus A350-900. The regional capital city of North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany most populated ‘Land’) will initially be served three times per week. Singapore Airlines also serves the German cities of Frankfurt and Munich.
With advanced technology and superior operating efficiency, the A350-900 offers customers an improved travelling experience with features such as higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra wide body and lighting designed to reduce jetlag.
The carrier will continue to strengthen its network of secondary destinations out of Europe. From October 30, Singapore national carrier will convert its Singapore-Munich-Manchester flight into a non-stop service between Singapore and Manchester with continuation to Houston, USA.
With the launch of the Singapore-Manchester-Houston service, existing Moscow-Houston and Munich-Manchester services will be suspended, from 30 October 2016. Both Munich and Moscow will continue to be served, however, on a non-stop basis to and from Singapore. Services to Munich will be operated daily, while services to Moscow will be operated four times weekly.
Outside Europe, Singapore Airlines will also launch a non-stop daily service between Singapore and San Francisco from 23 October 2016 using Airbus A350-900 aircraft. In the Pacific Rim, SIA will boost frequencies to Christchurch (New Zealand) to 10 times weekly from seven times weekly between 13 November 2016 and 5 February 2017, while services to Adelaide will increase to 10 times weekly from seven times weekly between 1 December 2016 and 31 January 2017. Services to Kolkata will increase to four times weekly in December 2016, up from the current three weekly flights.
