Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 16 September 2011

IndiGo has launched daily flights between New Delhi and Singapore. IndiGo is the fifth Indian airline to operate at Changi.

The route will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft that have a capacity of 180 passengers in a single-class configuration.

IndiGo plans to add a Mumbai-Singapore service in the middle of October.

With the addition of IndiGo, the Singapore-New Delhi route will be served by four carriers (IndiGo, Air India, Jet Airways and Singapore Airlines) operating a total of 70 flights a week.

The Singapore-Mumbai route will be served by six carriers operating a total of 90 flights a week.

Singapore is the most connected point to India in Southeast Asia. Some 180 weekly services with a capacity of more than 35,500 weekly one-way seats currently link Changi Airport to 11 cities in India.

With IndiGo joining Changis family of airlines, an additional 2,500 weekly one-way seats will be available between Singapore and India.

Given Singapore's strategic geographical location, Changi Airport is well-placed to tap on the growth of travel demand in India to Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand. Passenger traffic between Singapore and India has grown steadily over the years.

In 2010, more than 2.55 million passenger movements were recorded, an increase of 13.8% over 2009s 2.24 million. For the first seven months of 2011, passenger traffic between the two countries rose 6.6%, compared to the same period a year before.

IndiGo operates from Changi Terminal 2.
