Düsseldorf will become the third German city in Singapore Airlines’ route network next year, when non-stop flights are introduced from Singapore. The three-times a week service is to be launched on 21 July 2016 using the all-new A350-900, which will be the latest addition to the Airline’s fleet. SIA intends to increase frequency at a later date.
“Flights to Düsseldorf will complement our existing services to Europe, and be served by all-new Airbus A350-900s fitted with Singapore Airlines’ latest cabin products. With this addition, Singapore Airlines will serve the three largest airports in Germany, including Frankfurt and Munich,” said Singapore Airlines’ senior VP marketing planning, Lee Wen Fen.
Düsseldorf is the capital of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and is the most populous of the 16 federal states in Germany, bordering Belgium and the Netherlands. In addition to being an international business, manufacturing and financial centre, it is also a leading fashion centre that is well known for trade fairs.
With the new flights, Singapore Airlines will serve Germany with 38 weekly services. Singapore Airlines has 67 A350-900s on firm order, the first of which is due for delivery early in 2016.
