With demand on the rise as more Asian countries ease border restrictions, Singapore Airlines in the coming weeks is reinstating and increasing its network, the carrier announced this week.
For Japan, Singapore from Oct. 30 will add a daily flight to Tokyo-Haneda, which will join its existing daily flight on the route and its daily service to Tokyo-Narita. That same date the carrier also will resume its second daily Singapore-Osaka flight and will increase its service to Fukuoka to three flights per week. Singapore’s low-cost subsidiary Scoot from Oct. 30 will increase three routes to daily service—from Singapore to Tokyo-Narita, to Narita via Taipei, and to Sapporo.
For South Korea, beginning Oct. 30 Singapore will add another daily service to Seoul, bringing its total to three flights daily. Scoot on that date will resume its five-times weekly Singapore-Taipei-Seoul service. From Nov. 5, Scoot also will up its flights to Jeju to five times weekly from three.
Also from Oct. 30, Singapore will increase its service to Hong Kong to three times daily from two, subject to regulatory approval. Scoot as of that date will increase its Hong Kong frequency to daily service. And from Oct. 31, Singapore will reinstate its four-times weekly service to Taipei, adding to the three-times weekly service.
For mainland China, Singapore on Sept. 27 reinstated its twice-weekly service to Beijing, and on Oct. 11 will resume weekly service to Chengdu. Scoot on Sept. 26 resumed weekly flights to Fuzhou and increased to twice-weekly flights into Nanjing. Weekly service to Hangzhou resumed Oct. 3, while flights to Tianjin will increase to twice weekly on Oct. 11, weekly flights to Zhengzhou will resume Oct. 12, and weekly service to Wuhan will resume Oct. 13.
In addition, for Indonesia, Scoot in October will launch operations to Lombok and Makassar, and resume service to Pekanbaru and Yogyakarta.
