On Monday (October 3, 2022), the Singapore Airlines Group (SIA) announced that they will bolster service to key markets in the coming weeks, including key cities in East Asia, on burgeoning demand. From October 30, 2022, SIA will add flight SQ636, an additional daily flights to Tokyo-Haneda, on top of the existing daily flight to Haneda (SQ634) and daily flight SQ638 to Tokyo-Narita. On the same date, SIA will also resume flight SQ618 from Singapore to Osaka, expanding service to two flights daily. Flights between Singapore and Fukuoka (SQ656) will also increase to three weekly flights. Currently, Scoot operates daily flights to Tokyo-Narita, as well as four weekly flights to Narita via Taipei, and five weekly flights to Osaka.


Scoot’s flights to Tokyo-Narita and Osaka will be increased to daily service from October 31, 2022. Additionally, Scoot will add TR890, a seasonal four times weekly direct flight to Sapporo from November 2, 2022, through February 27, 2023, as well as three weekly flights to Sapporo via Taipei from November 1st, 2022.


In Monday’s announcement, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President – Marketing Planning, Ms. JoAnn Tan, said,


“Buoyed by the further easing of entry requirements in Hong Kong SAR, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, China we are seeing strong demand for air travel towards the year-end holiday season. Many customers are especially keen on destinations that have remained largely closed over the last few years. The SIA Group aims to offer even more value and options for our customers as they make their holiday plans, and we will be nimble in adjusting our services in response to the demand for air travel.”


Starting October 30, 2022, SIA will also add flight SQ606, a new daily service to Seoul, complementing the current SQ600 and SQ608 daily flights to Seoul, for a total of three daily flights to South Korea’s Capital. Additionally, on October 30th Scoot will reinstate TR896, a five times weekly Singapore-Taipei-Seoul service. Scoot will also increase frequency to Jeju to five times weekly (up from twice weekly) starting November 5, 2022. From October 31st, SIA will also resume flight SQ876 as four weekly flights to Taipei, complementing the current three times weekly flight SQ878 to Taipei.


Pending regulatory approvals, SIA will also increase service from two to three weekly flights to Hong Kong. Scoot currently operates four weekly flights to Hong Kong, which will increase to a daily frequency from October 30, 2022.
