Singapore Airlines is to make changes to its route network in the coming months that will include frequency increases on several routes as well as the suspension of operations to Pakistan as well as Nanjing in China.

Changes will begin to be seen from this month, when Singapore-Moscow-Houston flight frequency will increase to five per week from four, effective tomorrow, 18 December.

From 19 January 2010, non-stop Singapore-Newark flights will return to daily operations from the current five-times-weekly.

Munich will be a new destination in the SIA network from the start of the northern summer schedule late in March 2010. Flights will operate five times per week on a Singapore-Munich-Manchester routing. Manchester services will be increased to five-times-weekly from thrice-weekly as a result.

Also from the start of the summer season in 2010, Colombo and Dhaka will each be served daily, up from five flights per week.
Frequency to Mumbai and Delhi will meanwhile be increased from March and June 2010, respectively. Flights will be operated twice-daily to both Indian cities, up from the existing 11-times-weekly.

Services to Seoul will also increase from June 2010, to 18-times-weekly from 14-times-weekly. One of the daily flights carries on to San Francisco.

In addition, SIA will begin serving Tokyo Haneda airport with two daily flights from the end of October 2010, complementing the existing twice-daily flights to Tokyo Narita, one of which continues on to Los Angeles.

On the downside, the airline will suspend twice-weekly operations to Pakistan and Nanjing. The last Singapore-Karachi-Lahore service will be operated on 17 February 2010 while the last Singapore-Nanjing service will be operated on 26 March 2010. SIA has said it will be assisting affected customers in making alternative travel arrangements.

Frequency will also be reduced in other areas of the network. From January 2010, Ho Chi Minh City will be served 14 times per week instead of 18 times while Kuala Lumpur will be served 17 times per week rather than 24. However overall SIA Group flight frequency on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route will remain unchanged at 54 per week as SilkAir will be taking over the operation of one of SIA’s daily services.
