Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced a fourth daily flight between Singapore and Manila to start on July 10.
The increase is a result of the bilateral air services agreement between Singapore and the Philippines (see news) and provides a capacity increase of over 20 percent to the route. SIA previously operated three flights a day, and the carrier will now depart Singapore at 0940, 1210, 1410 and 1705 daily. All flights utilise a Boeing B777 aircraft.
Currently, three airlines fly direct between Singapore and Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport: SIA, Philippine Airlines (which Garuda Indonesia has struck up a code share with) and Cebu Pacific. The route between Changi Airport’s Budget Terminal and Clark International Airport in Angeles City in Luzon is served by also by Cebu Pacific and Tiger Airways.
“The frequency increase on this route underscores the strong and growing economic, business and tourism links between Singapore and the Philippines,” said Huang Cheng Eng, SIA executive vice-president marketing and the regions.
