Singapore Airlines (SIA) will introduce a fifth weekly flight to Kolkata, India, from March 29, 2020. On the same day, the Airline’s regional wing SilkAir will cease services to the city. Currently, SIA operates four weekly flights and SilkAir operates three weekly flights to Kolkata.

SIA’s Kolkata services will continue to be operated by the Airbus A350-900 medium haul aircraft, which is equipped with the Airline’s latest regional cabin products for Business Class and Economy Class.

Singapore Airlines Senior Vice-President (Marketing Planning) Tan Kai Ping said that the Airline’s A350-900 medium haul aircraft has been warmly received by customers since its introduction on the Singapore-Kolkata route in June 2019.

“We are pleased to increase our services to Kolkata with this new generation aircraft by adding a weekly frequency from March 2020,” he said.

Other services to India

In addition to 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. These are Amritsar, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Trivandrum, Tiruchirappalli and Visakhapatnam.

After this change, SilkAir will operate to four points in India, including Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kochi.

From March 29, 2020, the SIA Group airlines will operate more than 140 weekly flights to India.

Sales for SIA’s additional Kolkata flights will commence from January 14, 2020.

Customers with existing bookings on SilkAir’s Kolkata flights on and after 29 March 2020 will be re-accommodated on SIA’s flights.
