SIA to adjust flight frequencies next year

18 Dec 2012

Singapore Airlines has announced they will adjust frequencies on select routes to Australia, Asia and Europe starting on March 31 until October 26, 2013, in order to align services with passenger demand.

SIA flights to Melbourne will go from three flights per day to four times a day and flights to Adelaide will go from 10 times a week to 12 per week.

Flights to Fukuoka will become a daily service from five per week and flights to Osaka will operate twice a day, instead of 11 times per week.

As reported earlier (see story here), the carrier is also going to increase flights to the Danish capital Copenhagen to five times per week, thanks to a joint venture with SAS.

Between May 20 and August 11, the Singapore-Moscow-Houston flight will increase to daily from five flights per week.

Other adjustments to the SIA network include cessation of non-stop flights to Los Angeles and Newark, with the last flights on these routes departing on October 20 and November 23 respectively, as reported earlier (see story here), due to the uneconomical model of operating these non-stop ultra long-haul routes.

SilkAir, SIA’s regional subsidiary, will also alter its network next year. In China, flights to Wuhan will go from four times a week to a daily service, while flights to Chengdu will go from a daily service to 9 times a week. Frequencies will also be increased on flights to Phuket, Penang, Manado, Danang, Siem Reap, Yangon, Langkawi and Chiang Mai.
