Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand is expected to jointly launch a third daily flight between Singapore and Auckland starting October 28, 2018.
According to sources, it will help boost capacity on the route by up to 40 percent, and add over 165,000 seats annually between the two cities. Similarly, the additional service along with a revision of current schedules would reduce connection times, and enhance connectivity through the Singapore hub.
Reports suggest that the new service will operate daily during the peak Northern Winter season between October 28, 2018 and March 30, 2019, and five times every week during the Northern Summer season between March 31, 2019 and October 26, 2019.
During peak months, the airlines will jointly operate around 35 return services every week between Singapore and New Zealand, including Christchurch and Wellington flights. Read More…
