Singapore Airlines (SIA) is to increase services to Europe in summer 2024, including the restoration of Airbus A380 flights between Singapore and Frankfurt.
The Far Eastern carrier will continue to restore capacity to pre-Covid levels to more long-haul destinations next summer, including the return of the A380 superjumbo to continental Europe for the first time since the pandemic. The airline has already restarted A380 flights to the UK.
The airline’s flagship A380 will resume flying to Frankfurt on 31 March 2024 when it replaces the A350-900 aircraft currently operating the daily Frankfurt-Singapore service.
Other moves will see Singapore Airlines restart non-stop flights to Barcelona from 2 June 2024 when there will be a twice-weekly service. Barcelona is currently being served via Milan.
As part of the capacity increase, non-stop Singapore-Milan flights will increase from two to four per week from 3 June. While Singapore-Milan-Barcelona frequencies will drop from five times per week to thrice weekly from 4 June.
Other changes to European services in summer 2024 include increasing frequency on the Singapore-Manchester-Houston route back to the pre-Covid level of five times per week from 31 March – up from the current three per week schedule.
Also returning to pre-Covid capacity is the Singapore-Copenhagen route, which will resume daily flights from 1 July from its current five services per week.
Outside Europe, SIA is ramping up capacity to Australia, China, India, Japan, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, US and Vietnam in its summer 2024 schedule.
JoAnn Tan, senior vice president marketing planning at Singapore Airlines, said: “Our customers will be able to enjoy greater choice and flexibility when they travel with us, as SIA continues to adjust and expand our network in response to demand patterns.”
