Airlines have announced it will increase the number of daily flights from
Singapore to Manila to 4 per day
press release from Singapore Airlines can be read below:
Singapore Airlines is to add a fourth daily
flight between Singapore and Manila from 10 July.
The increase from three to four daily
flights, operated by the Boeing 777 family of aircraft, will expand capacity
between Singapore and Manila, by more than 20%. This has been made possible as
a result of recent bilateral air services consultations between Singapore and
SQ916 will depart Singapore at 14:10 and
arrive in Manila at 17:45. The return flight SQ921 will depart Manila at 18:50
and arrive in Singapore at 22:20.
To give customers more flight options
to suit their travel needs and to reduce transit times for onward departures
from Singapore Changi Airport, Singapore Airlines will re-time one of its
present Manila services.
SQ912 will be retimed to depart Singapore at
12:10 and arrive in Manila at 15:45, while the return flight, SQ919 will leave
Manila at 16:50 and arrive in Singapore at 20:20.
frequency increase on this route underscores the strong and growing economic,
business and tourism links between Singapore and the Philippines. It also
improves the connectivity of Manila to the rest of the world. The scheduling of
the four services to depart and arrive at various times during the day between
the two cities, gives our customers more options to choose a flight which
better suits their travel needs,” said Singapore Airlines Executive Vice President
Marketing and the Regions, Mr Huang Cheng Eng.
