Stockholm will become the second Scandinavian city in Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) route network in May, when the Airline introduces flights to Sweden’s capital, via Moscow. Subject to regulatory approvals, flights to Stockholm will be launched on 30 May 2017 and will be operated with Airbus A350-900 aircraft – the latest addition to the SIA fleet.
The new flights will complement SIA’s existing flights to Copenhagen in Denmark, boosting connectivity between Southeast Asia and Northern Europe. SIA currently operates four weekly flights to the Russian capital Moscow from Singapore. From 30 May, frequency will increase to five per week and the flights will continue on to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport. Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines will codeshare on the new services.
Subject to approval from competition authorities, the new services will also be included in a joint venture agreement between the two airlines that took effect in 2013 covering flights between Scandinavia and Singapore. Tickets for the new Stockholm flights will be made available for sale progressively through the various distribution channels.
