In May next year, Singapore Airlines will launch flights to the Swedish capital, Stockholm. The route will be launched on May 30th and will be operated 5 times a week using their new A350-900 aircraft, via Moscow. The new service will compliment the airline’s flights Copenhagen in Denmark.

The airline currently serves Moscow four times a week and will now add an extra flight while continuing the flights to Stockholm. Fellow Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines will expand the joint venture agreement the two airlines currently have between Scandinavia and Singapore with more codeshares.

“We have been evaluating services to Stockholm for several years and are pleased that we can now introduce services to the Swedish capital using the newest aircraft in our fleet, the Airbus A350-900. It is encouraging that our partnership with Scandinavian Airlines is going from strength to strength,” said SIA’s CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

“This is another example of how together with partners we can jointly offer more travel options for our customers, bringing Southeast Asia and Scandinavia closer in addition to meeting increasing demand for travel between Southwest Pacific and Northern Europe. With the new services to Stockholm complementing existing flights to Copenhagen, customers will soon have the choice of two convenient gateways to explore the increasingly popular Nordic countries.”

“We look forward to develop our collaboration further with Singapore Airlines and thereby be able to offer our customers a new route to Singapore from Stockholm, and also from there onwards into Asia, Australia and New Zealand,” said Scandinavian Airlines CEO, Mr Rickard Gustafson.
