Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 17 June 2009

Singapore Airlines is to add a fourth daily flight between Singapore and Manila from 10 July.

The increase from three to four daily flights, operated by the Boeing 777 family of aircraft, will expand capacity between Singapore and Manila, by more than 20%. This has been made possible as a result of recent bilateral air services consultations between Singapore and the Philippines.

SQ916 will depart Singapore at 14:10 and arrive in Manila at 17:45. The return flight SQ921 will depart Manila at 18:50 and arrive in Singapore at 22:20.

 To give customers more flight options to suit their travel needs and to reduce transit times for onward departures from Singapore Changi Airport, Singapore Airlines will retime one of its present Manila services.

SQ912 will be retimed to depart Singapore at 12:10 and arrive in Manila at 15:45, while the return flight, SQ919 will leave Manila at 16:50 and arrive in Singapore at 20:20.

The frequency increase on this route underscores the strong and growing economic, business and tourism links between Singapore and the Philippines. It also improves the connectivity of Manila to the rest of the world. The scheduling of the four services to depart and arrive at various times during the day between the two cities, gives our customers more options to choose a flight which better suits their travel needs, said Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Marketing and the Regions, Mr Huang Cheng Eng.
