Daily flights

Singapore Airlines (S.I.A.) from next year’s summer season will serve Colombo and Dhaka daily, up from five weekly flights.
However, it will suspend operations to Pakistan as well as Nanjing, China. From next month, Ho Chi Minh City will be served 14 times weekly instead of 18 times while Kuala Lumpur will be served 17 times weekly rather than 24. However overall SIA Group flight frequency on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route will remain unchanged at 54 per week as SilkAir will be taking over the operation of one of SIA’s daily services. Positive signs of demand recovery continue to be seen, but operating conditions remain challenging and yields in particular remain under pressure, the Airline said. From this month, the Singapore-Moscow-Houston flight frequency has increase to five weekly, from four. From next January, non-stop Singapore-Newark flights will return to daily operations from the current five-times weekly. Munich will be a new destination in the S.I.A. network from the start of the northern summer schedule late in March. Flights will operate five times weekly on a Singapore-Munich-Manchester routing. Manchester services will be increased to five weekly from thrice weekly as a result. Frequency to Mumbai and Delhi will meanwhile be increased from March and June respectively. Flights will be operated twice daily to both Indian cities, up from the existing 11 times weekly. Services to Seoul will also increase from June 2010 to 18 times weekly, from 14 times weekly. One of the daily flights carries on to San Francisco.
In addition, S.I.A. will begin serving Tokyo Haneda airport with two daily flights from end  October, complementing the existing twice daily flights to Tokyo Narita, one of which continues on to Los Angeles.
