Singapore Airlines to add sixth daily Bangkok flight

First of Singapore Airlines' A350-900S to serve Amsterdam

Singapore Airlines will add a sixth daily flight to Bangkok in March, up from five daily flights. As part of the Northern Summer schedule (27 March 2016 – 29 October 2016), there will also be an increase in frequency to Colombo in Sri Lanka and Milan in Italy.

The sixth daily Bangkok service will be introduced with effect from 27 March 2016 to meet growth in demand for travel to and from the Thai capital. An Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be operated, adding nearly 2,000 seats per week on the route, which is popular with both business and leisure travellers.

Flight SQ982 will depart Singapore at 1735hrs and arrive in Bangkok at 1900hrs. The return flight SQ983 will depart Bangkok at 2005hrs and arrive in Singapore at 2330hrs (all times local).

Frequency to Colombo will meanwhile increase to 10 per week from 7. Milan services will increase to six per week from the current five, including two that continue to Barcelona in Spain.

As previously announced, Düsseldorf will become the newest destination in the Singapore Airlines network from 21 July 2016. Flights will be operated three times per week with the all-new Airbus A350-900 fitted with Singapore Airlines’ latest cabin products.
