Stockholm will become the second Scandinavian city in Singapore Airlines’ route network in May 2017, when the Airline introduces flights to Sweden’s capital, via Moscow.
Subject to regulatory approvals, flights to Stockholm will be launched on May 30, 2017 and will be operated with Airbus A350-900 aircraft – the latest addition to the SIA fleet. The new flights will complement SIA’s existing flights to Copenhagen in Denmark, boosting connectivity between Southeast Asia and Northern Europe.
December 15 also marked the Airline’s inaugural A350 flight to Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport.
SIA currently operates four weekly flights to Russian capital Moscow from Singapore. From May 30, flight frequency will increase to five per week and the flights will continue on to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.
Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines will codeshare on the new services.
“With the new services to Stockholm complementing existing flights to Copenhagen, customers will soon have the choice of two convenient gateways to explore the increasingly popular Nordic countries,” said SIA’s CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.
“We look forward to develop our collaboration further with Singapore Airlines and thereby be able to offer our customers a new route to Singapore from Stockholm, and also from there onwards into Asia, Australia and New Zealand,” said Scandinavian Airlines CEO, Mr Rickard Gustafson.
