Düsseldorf will become the third German city in Singapore Airlines’ route network next year, when non-stop flights are introduced from Singapore. Flights are to be launched on 21 July 2016 using the all-new Airbus A350-900, which will be the latest addition to the Airline’s fleet.
Subject to regulatory approval, flight SQ338 will depart Singapore on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 2330hrs (local time). The return sector, operated as flight SQ337, will depart Düsseldorf on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 1130hrs (local time). SIA intends to increase frequency at a later date.
“Flights to Düsseldorf will complement our existing services to Europe, and be served by all-new Airbus A350-900s fitted with Singapore Airlines’ latest cabin products. With this addition, Singapore Airlines will serve the three largest airports in Germany, including Frankfurt and Munich,” said Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Ms Lee Wen Fen.
Düsseldorf is the capital of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is the most populous of the 16 federal states in Germany, bordering Belgium and the Netherlands. In addition to being an international business, manufacturing and financial centre, it is also a leading fashion centre that is well known for trade fairs. With the new flights, Singapore Airlines will serve Germany with 38 weekly services. This includes twice-daily flights between Singapore and Frankfurt, daily flights between Frankfurt and New York, daily flights between Singapore and Munich, and daily flights between Munich and Manchester.
Customers will be able to enjoy the Airline’s latest-generation cabin products on the new A350-900 aircraft. This includes all-new Business, Premium Economy and Economy class seats, as well as the world’s most advanced in-flight entertainment system. Ticket sales for the new Düsseldorf flights will be made available for sale through our various distribution channels on a progressive basis.
Singapore Airlines has 67 A350-900s on firm order, the first of which is due for delivery early in 2016.
