Singapore Airlines adds Kuwait, increases Abu Dhabi, Cairo frequencies

Singapore Airlines will begin a four-times-weekly service to Kuwait from 15 March 2009. Flying via Abu Dhabi, the service will operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, using Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

As a consequence of the introduction of this service, Singapore Airlines will now fly between Singapore and Abu Dhabi daily, up from the existing three times weekly service.

From 12 March 2009, Singapore Airlines will increase flights between Singapore and Cairo from three times a week to four. All these flights will operate via Dubai.

The addition of Kuwait to the Singapore Airlines network comes after the conclusion and signing of a broad Open Skies Agreement between Singapore and Kuwait last month. Kuwait will be Singapore Airlines’ 68th destination, across 36 countries.

The addition of these flights brings Singapore Airlines’ frequency between Dubai and Singapore to 21 times weekly, of which 17 flights operate beyond to Istanbul, Cairo, Moscow and Riyadh. Service between Singapore and Abu Dhabi will operate daily, with the existing three flights continuing on to Jeddah, and the four new flights going on to Kuwait.
