SINGAPORE, 28 June 2021: Singapore Airlines resumes three
weekly nonstop flights to Manchester in northern England effective 16 July
using an A350-900 aircraft.
The airline’s website is open for bookings with the lowest
oneway Economy Lite fare starting at SGD654. The service will operate every
Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
The airline suspended 98% of its international flights
during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic last year.
It announced it was returning to Manchester on 8 June as the airline celebrated its 50th anniversary of flying to the UK.
Manchester Airport’s managing director, Karen Smart, said at
the time: “We are pleased to hear Singapore Airlines will be resuming its
direct service from Manchester next month. Singapore Airlines is one of our
longest-serving airlines, and we know its routes have been extremely popular
with passengers from across the North over the years, both in terms of leisure
and business travel. We look forward to working with our colleagues at
Singapore Airlines to make this returning service a success, especially given
the destination’s inclusion on the UK Government’s green list. Together, we
hope to be able to relaunch the popular Houston service as soon as possible
once travel to and from the United States is opened up.”
The airline extended the Singapore-Manchester route to Houston, Texas, in 2016 with five weekly flights but no immediate plans to resume the trans-Atlantic sector.
Singapore is a green light country on the UK Covid-19 list meaning citizens and residents can visit with minimum restrictions and entry rules.
