Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and Singapore Airlines intend to launch a jointly operated non-stop route between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Singapore Changi Airport, which is an important transfer airport in South East Asia. The two airlines have entered a partnership agreement, which includes coordination of timetables and ticket sales. The agreement must first be approved by the authorities in Singapore. Once the agreement is approved, the airlines will provide more information about timetables, aircraft models and prices.
“We are extremely positive about the enhanced range of intercontinental flights on offer from Stockholm Arlanda to this part of Asia, especially since Singapore is an important hub for flights continuing on to South East Asia and Australia,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda.
“Due to the increased demand for travel to South East Asia, we are very pleased to be able to partner with Singapore Airlines to launch a new direct route between Stockholm and Singapore. We will also be able to offer both our corporate and leisure customers a wide number of destinations across South East Asia thanks to our partnership with Singapore Airlines,” says Robin Kamark, chief commercial officer of SAS.
