Singapore Airlines has confirmed it will operate flight to Sapporo, Japan, in December 2014 and January 2015.

A total of 14 flights will be operated to the capital of Hokkaido, a vast island accounting for about a fifth of Japan's total area.

A renowned skiing and snow sports destination, Hokkaido is also home to many national parks and natural landscapes, high-quality agriculture and seafood, hot springs, as well as the Sapporo White Illumination - a Festival where the city blanketed in snow will be lit with decorative lights.

Flights to Sapporo's New Chitose Airport will operate twice-weekly as SQ660 on Mondays and Fridays, between 1 December 2014 and 16 January 2015.

Flights will depart at 23:30 and arrive at 08:00 the following day. Return Sapporo-Singapore flights will operate as SQ661, departing at 09:30 on Tuesdays and 08:55 on Saturdays, between 2 December 2014 and 17 January 2015.

Airbus A330-300s will be used for the flights, with 30 seats in Business Class and 255 seats in Economy Class.

Singapore Airlines operates year-round services to four other Japanese cities, namely Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo (both Haneda and Narita airports).
