by James Wilkinson

Singapore Airlines is set to launch daily flights between Singapore and Beijing’s Daxing International Airport on 11 November 2024.

Located in the south of Beijing, the airport gives customers convenient access to the Beijing, Hebei, and Tianjin regions, where several world cultural heritage sites are located, via a network of highways, subways, and railways.

The airline will also increase its frequencies to Beijing Capital International Airport to 21 weekly services from 5 August 2024, up from 18 weekly services.

This means Singapore Airlines will operate 28 weekly services to China’s capital city from November 2024.

With the addition of Beijing Daxing, the SIA Group – which comprises SIA and its low-cost subsidiary Scoot – will serve 24 destinations in mainland China, reflecting its firm commitment to this important market.

Singapore Airlines will operate its Boeing 787-10 aircraft, which features 36 Business Class seats and 301 Economy Class seats, on this new service.

“China is a key market for the Singapore Airlines Group,” said Singapore Airlines Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Dai Haoyu.

“This new flight to Beijing Daxing allows Singapore Airlines to offer an additional daily service to Beijing, a popular destination for both tourist and business travellers.

“With 24 destinations in the Group’s mainland China network, we offer some of the best options and connections for travel between Singapore and China, and beyond.”
