Singapore Airlines will increase services to Bangkok in the winter schedule, while adding frequencies to destinations in Asia and Africa according to a statement issued last Friday.

During the winter timetable, 30 October to 24 March 2012, Singapore Airlines will operate five daily flights between Bangkok and Singapore up from the current four.

At the peak of Bangkok’s popularity, SQ offered six daily flights, but started to reduce services in 2008 through to 2010 when flights dropped to just four daily.

The additional daily flight will use a wide-bodied B777-200 aircraft on a service departing Singapore at 1310 and returning from Bangkok at 1540.

The airline will also add a daily flight to Guangzhou and Tokyo’s Haneda airport giving it two flights daily. One weekly frequency will be added to Ahmedabad (from two to three); Osaka (from 10 to 11) and Cape Town via Johannesburg (from three to four). It will lift Istanbul services from four weekly to six (three extending from Athens, which is currently served non-stop from Singapore). Mumbai bound flights increase from 14 to 17 a week.
