Singapore, September 4, 2013
 

SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) will increase capacity on its Singapore-Shanghai route from October 27, the beginning of its northern winter operating season.

 

The airline will replace Boeing 777 aircraft currently being used on the route with the larger Airbus A380 on five weekly flights, thus raising overall seat capacity by 12 per cent.

 

SIA is running 35 weekly flights to Shanghai Pudong International Airport in the northern summer season and will operate 28 flights during the northern winter season.

 

The airline and its regional arm, SilkAir, currently operate 116 weekly flights to 10 destinations in China collectively ­– Beijing, Changsha, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Kunming, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Xiamen.
