Starting July 21, 2016, SIA will already fly to Dusseldorf, Germany. Flights will be operated three times a week from Singapore using the all-new Airbus A350 900.

Additionally, SIA will start flying to Canberra, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand via “Capital Express” route. This new service allows SIA to bring international flights to Canberra and link Canberra to Wellington. On September 20, 2016, flights will be operated on this route four times a week. This makes SIA the first airline with flights between Canberra and Wellington. This gives Filipinos more convenient travel options between the capital of Australia and New Zealand.

Singapore Airlines Has Joint Ventures for Expanded Connectivity

SIA and Lufthansa team up to provide joint venture in operating key routes between Singapore and Europe. The two airline companies intend to co-operate in key markets in Europe, Southeast Asia, and Australia for more convenient connections between route networks. The expanded codeshare ties will give SIA customers with access to and from points in Austria, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland, through transfer hubs of Frankfurt, Munich, and Zurich, with more than 20 new codeshare routes.

Additionally, SIA customers can enjoy increased capacity and additional frequencies to New Zealand through Singapore with the Airline’s alliance with Air New Zealand. Both carriers operate one return service each per day on the Singapore-Auckland route and Singapore Airlines operate a daily return service between Singapore and Christchurch. Customers now also have access to a further 40 destinations in the Air New Zealand network, making travel to and within New Zealand much easier.

The New Singapore Airlines A350-900 Aircraft

Starting April 2016, SIA is expecting to start receiving the 63 new A350-900 aircrafts that are on firm order. These aircrafts will have Amsterdam as its inaugural destination. In 2018, SIA aims to take delivery of the A350 ultra long range aircraft and resume its non-stop service between Singapore and the United States.
