Hard on the heals of its Dubai introduction (AERBT 12 September) IndiGo has taken advantage of winning approval for international flights by commencing services into Changi Airport, Singapore from Delhi. IndiGo is the fifth Indian carrier to operate at Changi.
IndiGo now operates daily, flying a 180-passenger Airbus A320 aircraft in a single class configuration. It will add a Mumbai – Singapore service commencing in the middle of October. IndiGo uses Changi Airport Terminal 2.
With the addition of IndiGo, the Singapore – New Delhi route will be served by four carriers operating a total of 70 flights a week. On Singapore – Mumbai no less than six carriers offer 90 flights a week.
Singapore is the most connected point to India in Southeast Asia. Some 180 weekly services with a capacity of more than 35,500 weekly one-way seats currently link Changi Airport to 11 cities in India. More than 2.55m passenger movements were recorded in 2010, an increase of 13.8% over 2009’s 2.24m. For the first seven months of 2011, passenger traffic between the two countries rose 6.6%, compared to the same period a year before. www.goindigo.in
