Singapore Airlines adds Medan and Cape Town to its passenger network in the latest update, while also expanding Boeing 777-300ER operation to the USA - including a First Class cabin.

Singapore Airlines and SilkAir have announced their flight schedules through to the end of July 2021, adding an additional month to the previously confirmed route list, which was published through to 30th June 2021.

Again a large number of frequency increases are also apparent on the network, with routes like Bangkok, Brisbane, Manila and Melbourne going twice daily in the coming months.


Boeing 777-300ER service also continues to expand, including the reintroduction of First Class cabins, on routes like London, Los Angeles, Sydney and Jakarta.

Overall SIA and SilkAir will serve 51 cities globally with passenger flights by July 2021.

The passenger network over the next three months is set to be served by the following aircraft types:

  • Airbus A350-900s
  • Boeing 737-800s
  • Boeing 777-300ERs
