SINGAPORE - There will soon be more options for travellers who want to visit Bangkok, as Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be increasing the number of its daily flights to the Thai capital.
In a statement, the carrier announced that the new flight, SQ982, will depart Singapore at 5.35pm and arrive in Bangkok at 7pm. The return flight, SQ983, will depart from Bangkok at 8.05pm and reach Singapore at 11.30pm.
It will begin with effect from Mar 27 next year.
The new flight will increase the number of SIA flights to and from Bangkok to six every day, which the airline said was to "meet growth in demand for travel to and from the Thai capital".
SIA also announced that an Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be operated for the new flight, resulting in nearly 2,000 more seats per week for the popular route.
Meanwhile, as part of SIA's northern summer schedule from Mar 27 to Oct 29 next year, there will also be an increase in flight frequency to Colombo, Sri Lanka and Milan, Italy.
Frequency of flights to Colombo will be increased to 10 per week from seven at present. Milan services will also increase to six per week from five now, including two that continue to Barcelona in Spain.
As previously announced, the national carrier will also be adding Dusseldorf to its network, with three flights a week from July 21 next year.
