Singapore Airlines will increase its number of flights to Manchester later this summer following a rise in demand from both business and leisure passengers.
On September 1st, the carrier will launch daily services to the north-west city from the Asian island country, while a similar expansion is being implemented on its flights to Munich.
Goh Choon Phong, Singapore Airlines’ executive vice president, said the expansion of services to the cities is "a testament" to their popularity.
"We are pleased that our products have been so well received, and we are confident that the additional flights will cater to the growing demand of our business and leisure customers travelling to and from both Munich and Manchester," he commented.
Passengers flying between Singapore and Manchester can take advantage of the carrier’s latest in-flight offerings, including new economy class seats with "unprecedented comfort and space".
Singapore Airlines said in April that, due to the lack of available slots at Heathrow Airport, it was unable to introduce additional flights to London.
