Singapore Airlines is to launch direct services to Munich, Germany’s third-largest city on 28 March 2010. The five-times-weekly flights will operate Singapore-Munich-Manchester, departing Singapore on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

As a result, customers travelling between Singapore and Manchester will enjoy more flight choices, up from the existing three flights a week. Munich will be Singapore Airlines’ second destination in Germany after Frankfurt, which is served with two daily flights, one of which carries on to New York.

Customers travelling on the new service will enjoy the airline’s latest product offerings available on the B777-300ER aircraft. This includes the new 35-inch-wide First Class seat, which provides enhanced privacy, personal attention and convenience and converts into the largest full-flat bed in the sky, complemented with luxurious soft furnishings.

Business Class features a 30-inch wide seat, the widest in its class, which may be converted into a comfortable bed, while Economy Class customers can enjoy the enhanced comfort and space offered by all-new seats.

Customers can also take delight in the latest movies, TV programmes and a large library of CDs on the newest version of KrisWorld, Singapore Airlines’ award-winning inflight entertainment system available across all three classes. First Class seats are fitted with larger 23-inch screens, Business Class seats feature 15.4-inch screens and Economy Class 10.6-inch screens.

“As a key commercial and cultural centre in Germany which successfully marries tradition and modernity against a backdrop of a spectacular landscape, Munich has something for everyone, whether you are travelling for business or leisure,” said Mr. Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice President Marketing and the Regions. “With the launch of these flights, Singapore Airlines will be able to meet demand for this exciting destination, which also provides a gateway into Austria and the surrounding region. En route, customers can savour our latest product and service offerings.”

Home to more than 1.3 million inhabitants and southern Germany’s largest city, Munich marries Germany’s old Bavarian tradition with a vibrant, modern life. It is famous for its celebration of the world’s largest folk festival, Oktoberfest. An annual 16-day festival with traditional German fare, beer and festivities, in 2010 the city will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Oktoberfest.

Munich is also well known for its proximity to famous landmarks such as Neuschwanstein Castle, often depicted as the fairy-tale castle of King Ludwig II and the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle, and the stunning Bavarian Alps. It is also home to numerous parks, world-famous companies like BMW and one of the world’s most successful football clubs, Bayern Munich.

The addition of these flights increases Singapore Airlines’ frequency between Singapore and Germany to 19-times weekly.
