Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) belly capacity on its Kolkata, India service gets a boost with a fifth weekly A350-900 flight.
The additional frequency will begin from 29 March 2020 with the carrier’s regional wing SilkAir ceasing services to the city. Currently, SIA operates four weekly flights and SilkAir operates three weekly single aisle flights to Kolkata.
SIA’s Kolkata services will continue to be operated by the Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
In addition to the eastern city of Kolkata, SIA operates to five other points in India – Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai and New Delhi. Scoot, SIA’s low-cost subsidiary, operates to seven points in India including: Amritsar, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Trivadrum, Tiruchirappalli and Visakhapatnam.
Following this change, SilkAir will continue to operate to four points in India – Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kochi. From 29 March 2020, the SIA Group airlines will operate more than 140 weekly flights to India.
