Singapore Airlines Launches 50th Anniversary Kick-Off Event
Reaffirms Commitment to the Philippine Market
with new Products and Services, and Expanded Network
Gracing the momentous occasion were Secretary Joseph Emilio Aguinaldo Abaya of the Department of Transportation and Communications, Undersecretary Benito Bengzon Jr of the Department of Tourism, Assistant Secretary Minda Cruz of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Her Excellency Kok Li Peng, Singapore’s Ambassador to the Philippines, as well as some 500 guests from the diplomatic corps, travel industry, various business sectors and the media.
Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah, affirmed the Airline’s commitment in elevating the air travel and tourism landscape in the Philippines. “We first commenced operations here in 1966 with a thrice-weekly service between Manila and Singapore. Today, Singapore Airlines and our subsidiary, SilkAir, operate 52 weekly flights out of the Philippines via Manila, Cebu, Davao and Kalibo. We have always been committed to bringing Filipinos and the world closer together through our extensive global network. With our own network as well as that of our key partners, we now link the Philippines to some 280 cities in over 70 countries around the world,” said Mr Mak.
“Expanded network, enhanced connectivity and continuous product innovation, all delivered with the award winning service of Singapore Airlines, are what we strive to deliver to customers. We look forward to strengthening our relationship even further with the Philippines over the coming years,” he added.
BRIDGING THE FILIPINOS AND THE WORLD CLOSER THROUGH SIA’S EXPANDED NETWORK
A new ‘Capital Express’ service will also be launched from 20 September 2016 with the introduction of flights to Canberra, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand. Flights will operate four times per week on a Singapore-Canberra-Wellington routing, making SIA the first airline to operate Canberra’s first regularly scheduled international flight and the first non-stop flight between the capitals of Australia and New Zealand.
Singapore Airlines has also expanded its connectivity through strategic partnerships with Lufthansa, Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia among others. Through the alliance with Lufthansa Group, SIA customers will have convenient access to and from points in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, via the transfer hubs of Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich. With the joint ventures with Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia, Singapore Airlines travellers can access a wide range of cities in the whole Southwest Pacific region. A new joint venture domestic airline, Vistara, was also established in India, which allows customers to hub via New Delhi to even more Indian cities.
With an expanded global network, Singapore Airlines now links the Philippines to some 280 cities in over 70 countries around the world.
Looking ahead, Singapore Airlines will resume its non-stop service between Singapore and the United States in 2018.
