Singapore Airlines resumes alternative Europe route



Singapore Airlines’ graduated return to full strength post-pandemic continues across the European summer, with the reintroduction of Barcelona, Spain, to its destination roster, as well as increased capacity between Singapore and Frankfurt, Germany, with an A380 swinging into action on the route, and Copenhagen, Denmark, where service is expanding from five times a week to daily.

In Australia, Singapore Airlines has reinstated its Perth-Singapore service to its pre-pandemic schedule of four times a week. In late May, it will introduce an extra service to Melbourne, meeting the pre-pandemic rate of five flights daily.

Since March, the airline has also been travelling between Singapore and Darwin at an increased rate of five times weekly. Competitor Jetstar no longer services this route, but Qantas began flying it in December, five times a week.

Qantas has announced a new non-stop Perth-Paris service. It will operate four days a week during the peak European summer, from July 12. It’s on a 787 Dreamliner, is a 17-hour flight, and the airline’s second between the West Australian capital and Europe, the first being Rome, Italy.
