Just weeks after celebrating the 50th anniversary of flying from the UK, Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced the return of its non-stop Manchester – Singapore route, beginning on 17 July.
Initially, the flight will operate three times weekly to and from Singapore, with an A350-900 aircraft but it is hoped that in time, this can gradually increase.
Singapore Airlines’ history with Manchester Airport has been one of the longest on record. The airline had been the airport’s longest serving long-haul carrier, having operated continuously since 1986, until the Covid-19 pandemic forced 98% of its flights globally to be grounded last year.
The 2016 launch of transatlantic services to Houston highlighted the airline’s 30th year of Manchester operations. A year later the airline flew the first commercial Airbus A350 flight from Manchester Airport.
