Singapore Airlines announces Brussels, its 16th European airport
Singapore Airlines today, 16th December, announced its next European destination on a passenger basis: Brussels. (It is already served by its freighters.) The Belgian capital will be its 16th European airport for passengers. It’ll be served four-weekly by the A350-900 from the 25th October 2020. anna.aero recently looked at the airline’s top-20 connecting routes.
Brussels – Singapore isn’t a large P2P market
In the past year, 33,000 flew Brussels-Singapore-Brussels on a P2P basis, with the most – 16% – via Frankfurt. This 33,000 was almost flat YOY.
The new service will depart Singapore at 2355 and arrive back, two days later, at 0655. These timings are very similar for most of the airline’s European operations, enabling strong two-way connectivity.
