Singapore Airlines plans to increase its transport capacity on the Shanghai-to-Singapore route by 25 percent before July 1 this year in preparation for China's outbound travel peak in summer.
From June 17, Singapore Airlines will offer three more direct flights a week from Shanghai to Singapore, the China office of Singaporean Airlines announced here on Saturday.
The airline company will add another four direct flights a week beginning July 1, bringing the number of direct flights on the route from 28 to 35 a week.
In total, the airline will offer 69 flights a week from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Nanjing to Singapore.
"East China has always been an important market for us and the increased capacity will offer our customers more choices," said Ho Yik Wing, general manager of Singapore Airlines China.
