SIA coup for Manchester

In a coup for Manchester Airport, Singapore Airlines has inaugurated non-stop flights to Houston and Singapore after re-routing the US service, which was formerly operated via Moscow.

The event saw various celebrations at the airport as well as a formal event attended by aviation minister Lord Ahmad.

Also attending were SIA regional vice president for Europe Subhas Menon and Manchester Airport CEO Ken O’Toole, Chia Wei Wen from the Singapore High Commission and Julie Greenhill from Texas Tourism.

The non-stop routes from Manchester will be operated five times weekly and make Manchester the only airport outside London to offer these destinations.

Subhas Menon said: “Our new non-stop routes to Houston and Singapore from Manchester are the first outside London to offer travellers more convenient travel to Texas. 

“We are committed to this region and want to continue to develop Singapore Airlines’ relationship with the people and businesses of the North West. With our partnership with Flybe, these routes are also open to travellers from 11 cities across the UK including Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness”.
