The latest news follows a recent announcement in August to increase capacity on its Australian routes from the Northern Summer 2024 schedule season.
From October 27, 2024, Adelaide will see an additional three flights per week, planned to operate on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday with a Boeing 787-10 aircraft, which will take the total number of services to the South Australian capital to 10 times weekly.
Singapore Airlines was able to increase flights from Adelaide during the peak season in 2023 and now plans to extend a 10-times weekly operation across the end of year peak period for 2024, providing additional connections to points across Europe, as well as South Africa and India.
The carrier will also add a fifth daily flight to Sydney from October 27, 2024 with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in anticipation of strong demand for travel to and from the city across the busy year end peak.
Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President South West Pacific, Louis Arul, said the fifth daily service will provide even more options for travellers to the United Kingdom and Europe as well as numerous cities in the Airline’s vast network in Asia, with convenient connections through the Airline’s hub at Singapore Changi Airport.
He said the additional services are in response to the sustained strong demand for travel to and from Australia and will provide further room for growth in Australia’s travel industry.
“Locking in these increased services for the year-end peak period provides a great opportunity for Australians to start planning their 2024 travel to secure the best fares possible,” Arul said.
“These additional flights provide even more options for Australians heading to Europe and Asia, with great connections through Singapore Changi Airport, for business, holiday or to connect with friends and family.”
