Singapore Airlines Begins Singapore-Munich-Manchester Service

by Jessica MCILHINNEY on March 30, 2010

Singapore Airlines has launched a new service to Munich that will connect to Manchester. Passengers will be able to choose first-, business- and economy-class seats on the Boeing 777-300ER that will service the route 5 times a week.

The new route will depart Changi Terminal 3 in Singapore at 10:45pm local time. It will arrive at the Franz Josef Strauß Airport at 5:35am, only to leave at 6:35am for Manchester. Then the return flight will depart at 9:20am from Manchester to Munich. It will arrive at 12:35pm, only to depart again at 1:35pm for Singapore, where it will arrive at 7:40am the next morning.

Oktoberfest, the largest beer and folk festival in the world, is held in Munich, while there are other well-known landmarks here as well. Adding this service to the network of Singapore Airlines will provide passengers flying to the city and surrounding destinations with easier travel and more connections. Now the city is the second destination serviced by the carrier in Germany. It already operates flights to Frankfurt twice a week.

Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines is also reportedly introducing new cabin products on their Boeing 777-200s, which operate services to Auckland and Christchurch in Australia. Their plan is to offer more consistent products, with more space and additional comfort.

The airline will add lie-flat leather seats to business-class, new seat covers to economy-class, as well as enhance their in-flight entertainment system. They plan to start offering these new products from July 3 on flights to Auckland and starting August 1 on Christchurch flights.
