Singapore Airlines (SIA) will introduce a fifth weekly flight to Kolkata, India, from March 29, 2020. On the same day, the Airline’s regional wing SilkAir will cease services to the city. Currently, SIA operates four weekly flights and SilkAir operates three weekly flights to Kolkata.
SIA’s Kolkata services will continue to be operated by the Airbus A350-900 medium-haul aircraft, which is equipped with the Airline’s latest regional cabin products for Business Class and Economy Class.
Singapore Airlines Senior Vice-President (Marketing Planning) Tan Kai Ping said that the Airline’s A350-900 medium-haul aircraft has been warmly received by customers since its introduction to the Singapore-Kolkata route in June 2019.
“We are pleased to increase our services to Kolkata with this new generation aircraft by adding a weekly frequency from March 2020,” he said.
