Southeast Asian full service carrier Singapore Airlines has announced its return to Athens, Greece, with twice weekly seasonal nonstop services from its hub at Singapore’s Changi International Airport to commence between June and October 2014. The flights will be operated using one of Singapore Airlines’ 13 Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, configured with either 285 (30J / 255Y) or 271 (26J / 245Y) seats in a 2-class configuration. The schedule for the new flights is as follows:
|SQ382||SIN – ATH||0205||0830||14|
|SQ381||ATH – SIN||1300||0455||14|
Singapore Airlines had previously suspended its year round services to Athens in the wake of the Greek financial collapse in October of 2012. But burgeoning tourist demand for travel to Greece from Asia prompted the airline to resume its services in time for next year’s high season. Including Athens, Singapore Airlines serves 14 destinations across Europe.
