Singapore Airlines to boost Osaka route with third daily flight

Singapore Airlines (SIA) will add a third daily service to Osaka’s Kansai International Airport in April 2019 to meet growing demand for travel between Singapore and Japan.

SIA already operates two flights per day on the popular Singapore-Osaka route, and the third will be introduced with effect from 27 April 2019. Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be operated, adding nearly 2,000 seats per week in each direction.

Flight SQ620 will depart Singapore at 08.30h and arrive at Osaka at 16.10h. The return flight will operate as SQ621, departing Osaka at 17.25h and arriving in Singapore at 23.05h (all local times).

In addition to Osaka, Singapore Airlines operates six daily services to Tokyo (Haneda and Narita airports), as well as daily services to both Fukuoka and Nagoya.

Regional subsidiary SilkAir operates thrice-weekly services to Hiroshima, while low-cost subsidiary Scoot operates 11 weekly flights to Osaka, four weekly flights to Sapporo and 19 weekly flights to Tokyo Narita. With SIA’s third daily service to Osaka, the SIA Group will operate a combined 114 weekly flights between Singapore and Japan.

The new flights are subject to regulatory approvals.
