SIA Cargo is to launch new freighter services to
Tokyo Narita via Bangkok and Taipei to offer freight forwarders
and exporters greater convenience in shipping their cargo.
Cargo will operate two new freighter services a week between
Singapore and Tokyo via Taipei from 19 October 2010, continuing into
the peak year-end season.
A third weekly freighter service via Taipei to
Narita will start on 6 November 2010.
SIA Cargo will also mount new
direct freighter services from Bangkok to Tokyo Narita with effect
from 3 November 2010. The twice-weekly services will operate every
Wednesday and Friday.
SIA Cargo’s parent company, Singapore
Airlines, will also be operating new twice-daily passenger
services between Singapore and Tokyo Haneda airport from 31
October 2010, complementing the existing twice-daily passenger
services to Tokyo Narita.
Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan are major
trading partners and these additional freighter services will
enhance the movement of manufactured goods, electronic devices,
food products, machinery and computers between these markets.
“We are pleased to mount new freighter services between these four
cities in response to demand for capacity and we look forward to the support of our customers,” said Mr Tan Tiow Kor, Senior Vice
President Sales and Marketing.
