Singapore Airlines has announced plans to increase its Manchester-Houston route next year.

The fifth freedom service (which routes Singapore-Manchester-Houston) originally launched in 2016, before being suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic and then reinstated in late 2021.

It currently operates three-times-weekly, but will increase to five flights per week from 31 March, 2024.

Scotland-based travellers can take advantage of Loganair’s interline agreement with Singapore Airlines, with the regional carrier operating 21 weekly services between Aberdeen and Manchester, and single booking also available on routes from Inverness, Isle of Man and Newquay, through Manchester and onto Houston.

“Flights to Houston are extremely popular with our Scottish customers and we’re delighted to bring the service back to pre-pandemic levels of five-weekly flights, plus with our friends at Loganair, we now offer more choice and flexibility to customers whilst strengthening our global network.”
