Singapore Airlines (SIA) has chalked out plans to restore its Indian network to pre-pandemic levels. The carrier expects to operate 100 per cent of its 2019 flight capacity by October 30, reported ETTravelWorld.

SIA announced that it would increase services to points across Japan and add more flights to Los Angeles and Paris by the end of this year and continue with its direct services to Vancouver. The move comes after the strong demand for air travel. SIA plans to offer flyers more flexibility and options in the Northern Winter operating season functional between October 30, 2022, and March 25, 2023.

In India, the airline will operate 17 weekly services to Chennai, up from the current 10 flights per week. Kochi services will go up to 14 times weekly, up from the current seven flights per week. Bengaluru services will go up to 16 times weekly, up from the current seven flights per week.

JoAnn Tan, Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines, said, “Japan is a key market for the SIA Group, and we will work closely with our partners to meet the demand for air travel as entry requirements gradually ease. Robust demand for travel to and from India, to points across the Group network, support an increase in our services in this important market.”

The airline will operate 21 weekly services to Los Angeles, including the daily one-stop service through Tokyo (Narita), up from the current 17 flights per week

From November 30, SQ36 will operate as a daily non-stop flight to Los Angeles. This would be in addition to the current daily SQ38 service. The airline will operate 21 weekly services to Los Angeles, including the daily one-stop service through Tokyo (Narita), up from the current 17 flights per week.

From December 1, SQ332 will operate five times weekly from Singapore to Paris, up from its current three times weekly service, and complement the current daily SQ336 service to the city. Paris will be served with 12 weekly flights, up from seven flights per week. SIA will continue its thrice-weekly SQ48 direct service to Vancouver in the Northern Winter operating season.
