Singapore Airlines to Expand Capacity to Sydney

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Friday, 11 January  2008

Singapore Airlines is to expand capacity on the Singapore Sydney route from April, with the progressive introduction of a fourth daily service.

The added frequency, utilizing the new Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, will be phased in from April, initially operating on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, before increasing to daily from June.

Together with the introduction of the new Airbus A380 on the route, the new service will expand capacity on the route by one third, with 1,500 seats a day to be available for sale.

SQ233 will depart Singapore at 0700hrs and arrive in Sydney at 1620hrs, giving customers ample time to check into the hotel and freshen up before heading out for dinner.

SQ234 will depart Sydney at 1735hrs and arrive in Singapore at 2350hrs, providing shorter connections to later onward departures from Singapore, such as Cape Town, Johannesburg, Rome, Athens, Zurich, Copenhagen, Beijing and Shanghai.

We have been especially pleased with the increased demand for our Sydney services. Sydney remains one of the most popular cities on our network, said Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President Marketing and Regions, Mr Huang Cheng Eng.

This frequency increase on this route will help meet the demands of travelers from around the world to reach this truly international city, as well as to help our Australian customers expand their travel options, added Mr Huang.

Besides Sydney (4 times daily), the Singapore Airlines network to Australia also includes Adelaide (daily), Brisbane (17 times weekly), Melbourne (3 times daily) and Perth (3 times daily).

The airline will be flying 94 times per week to Australia by June 2008, offering almost 3.5 million seats a year to and from Australia.
