Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 30 October 2008

Singapore Airlines is making adjustments to its network during the Northern Winter schedule to better match capacity with demand. These changes will take place progressively throughout the five-month-long Northern Winter schedule, which started 26 October 2008.

Flights to Penang and Ho Chi Minh will be gradually reduced during the Northern Winter period. As a result, Singapore Airlines will operate 18 weekly flights to Penang and 17 weekly flights to Ho Chi Minh.

Service to and from Seoul will be reduced progressively from the start of the winter season with a reduction in frequency of SQ 608 (Singapore-Seoul) and SQ 609 (Seoul-Singapore). The flights will be suspended from service completely from 2 February to 28 March 2009, when the winter season ends. Despite this reduction, Singapore Airlines will continue to operate 17 weekly services to and from the Korean capital during winter.

Osaka will be served once a day from 2 November 2008 by SQ 618 (Singapore-Osaka) and SQ617 (Osaka-Singapore). Flights SQ 622 (Singapore-Osaka) and SQ 621 (Osaka-Singapore) will be suspended.

Frequencies to Bangalore and Chennai will also be reduced during the Northern Winter schedule. The affected flights are SQ 500 and SQ 501, on the Singapore-Bangalore route, and SQ 526, and SQ527, between Singapore and Chennai. Both cities in India will continue to be served daily. 

Service to Amritsar will be withdrawn from 4 February 2008. Customers booked on flights to and from Amritsar will be re-accommodated on Singapore Airlines flight to and from Delhi.

From February 2009, Singapore Airlines will link its Cape Town flights to Johannesburg, although frequency will not change. The Cape Town extension will operate on three flights weekly, while the daily service to Johannesburg is maintained.

These changes come as Singapore Airlines increases services to the Middle East.

Last week (26 October), the frequency of Singapore Airlines flights to Istanbul, via Dubai, was boosted from four to six flights per week.

The airline will also commence operations to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on 14 December 2008. The four-times weekly service will operate via Dubai every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Singapore Airlines will be operating 20 times a week to Dubai with the start of operations to Riyadh.
