Singapore Airlines retimes Some Flights during Singapore Airshow

Between 14 and 25 February 2008, some Singapore Airlines flights will be retimed due to the closure of airspace to accommodate the Singapore Airshow 2008 Exhibition.

Flying displays will be held daily in conjunction with the Singapore Airshow Exhibition. The airspace around Singapore Changi Airport will be closed for short periods of time in the morning and afternoon to facilitate flying display practices and rehearsals between 14 and 18 February inclusive, and for actual flying displays between 19 and 24 February inclusive.

A total of 158 Singapore Airlines flights, both outbound and inbound, will be retimed to work around the closure of air space over the 11-day period. For the most part, the retimings are minor.

Singapore Airlines customers travelling during this period are advised to log on to the Singapore Airlines website to check the schedule of their flight, in case there have been changes since they first booked.

Where possible, the airline will also send SMS alerts via mobile phones to customers to notify them on the temporary changes in flight schedule, where mobile phone numbers were provided as part of the booking.

The retiming of flights has been planned to minimize inconvenience and flight mis-connections. However, if customers miss their connecting flights due to the schedule change, the airlines customer service officers will re-book the customers onto other available services.
