Wayfarer TV: Singapore Airlines to add London Gatwick flights from June 2024

by James Wilkinson

Singapore Airlines is set to launch non-stop flights between Singapore and London’s Gatwick Airport in June 2024, operating the five-times weekly services with the long-haul variant of its Airbus A350-900 aircraft.

Together with its current four-times daily services to London’s Heathrow Airport, this will bring the total number of flights to the United Kingdom’s capital to 33 weekly services from today’s 28 weekly services.

Subject to regulatory approval, flight SQ310 will operate on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with the inaugural flight taking off on June 22, 2024.

Singapore Airlines’ long-haul A350-900s feature 253 seats in three cabin classes: 42 in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class, and 187 in Economy Class.

“London has always been a very important market for the Singapore Airlines Group. With the introduction of this new service to London’s Gatwick Airport, Singapore Airlines’ customers will have an additional flight to choose from when flying between Singapore and the UK,” said Singapore Airlines’ Acting Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Dai Haoyu.

“It also opens up additional travel options to other points in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.”

Singapore Airlines also operates five-times weekly services to Manchester Airport and tickets for Singapore Airlines’ flights to London’s Gatwick Airport are now available for sale.
