Singapore Airlines to Increase Capacity for Northern Summer Schedule

Singapore Airlines plans to increase capacity on some existing routes when the Northern Summer schedule comes into effect on 26 March 2006. The schedule offers more frequencies to several cities in the carrier’s global network and will improve the connection options for its passengers travelling to Australia and North Asia.

The airline will fly daily to the South Australian city of Adelaide, up from the current five a week services.

An additional daily frequency will be added to Taipei; with this increase, the Taiwanese city will be served three times daily. Three more weekly frequencies will be operated to Guangzhou and Hong Kong bringing the total number of weekly services to these two destinations to 10 and 38 respectively.

In South East Asia, the airline will add another frequency to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, resulting in 13 weekly flights. Frequency to the Malaysian city of Penang will be increased to triple daily, from the existing 18 flights per week.

Frequency to Athens will be increased from two to three times weekly for the summer season.

Among new routes, Singapore Airlines will commence its three times weekly services to Karachi and Lahore in Pakistan from 1 February and launch a thrice-weekly service to the Russian capital Moscow on 1 March 2006, and thrice-weekly services to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates also on 1 March 2006.

With these increases, Singapore Airlines will operate more than 680 flights a week across its global network and its passenger network covers 62 cities in 34 countries.
