Good news for those of you likely to be in need of a post-Christmas ramen fix, Singapore Airlines is adding an extra daily flight to Tokyo Haneda airport from 28th December 2018.

The new flight SQ630, which departs Changi in the early evening and lands in Tokyo at 1am local time, will be operated by the 777-300ER Version 2 aircraft. It represents the 6th daily Singapore – Tokyo connection by the airline, two to Narita and four to Haneda.

On the return sector flight SQ639, which first operates on 29th December, offers a later overnight option than currently available with any airline on the Tokyo – Singapore route. Departure is at 2.30am landing into Changi after a good night’s sleep at a fairly civilised 9.15am.

All 2013 / 2018 products

As you may have seen in our article yesterday the 2013 seat product is set to be the only 777-300ER configuration flying from 28th October as the final two 2006 configured aircraft are planned to be towed into the hangar for refitting that day.

That not only means the 2013 First and Business Class seats and a Premium Economy cabin, it means Tokyo is exclusively served with either the 2013 First and Business Class cabin products (after 1st December 2018), or the 2018 RJ flat-bed regional Business Class on the 787-10 (to and from Narita).

This additional flight complements existing Boeing 777-300ER Version 2 and Airbus A350 flights on the Haneda route.

    1. Not an expert but options may be down to just taxi.. and unless…

      A) You’re so tight on time that you need to fly out of SIN after office hours for a meeting the next morning, potentially for just a day-trip (for whatever reason)… AND..

      B) Your company is picking up the Taxi bill..

      I wouldn’t take this flight.. “stressful”..
