Singapore Airlines Cargo Adds Jakarta to Network

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 15 September 2011

Singapore Airlines Cargo has added Jakarta to its freighter network and increased its weekly frequencies to Auckland, Shanghai, Sydney and Xiamen.

The new once-weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service to Jakartas Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, commenced last week. The new freighter service will be increased to twice weekly from Northern Winter 2011.

The freighter service to Jakarta complements the belly-hold space available on Singapore Airlines 49 weekly passenger flights between Singapore and Jakarta. From today (15 September), this will be increased to 56 flights per week.

Indonesia is a major exporter of garments, footwear, food products, machinery and electronic devices between Jakarta, Singapore and the rest of the world. The additional freight capacity will provide shippers more choices and faster movement of their cargo to markets around the world.

Last month, SIA Cargo increased its frequency to Xiamen from three to five times weekly, and frequency to Shanghai from seven to eight times weekly.

Frequency to Sydney was increased from four to seven times weekly, while Auckland frequency increased from three to five times weekly. These additional services were mounted mainly to cater to increased import demand into the South West Pacific region.

These new and additional freighter services are timely and are in line with our policy of matching capacity with demand. They further enhance our network coverage of over 600 flights a week to 72 cities in 37 countries, providing our customers more choices of flights to ship their freight, said Mr Tan Tiow Kor, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing.
