Singapore Airlines (SIA) will launch its inaugural non-stop flights between Singapore and London’s Gatwick Airport in June 2024, operating the five-times weekly services with the long-haul variant of its Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
Together with its current four-times daily services to London’s Heathrow Airport, this will bring the total number of flights to the United Kingdom’s (UK) capital to 33 weekly services from today’s 28 weekly services. SIA also operates five-times weekly services to Manchester Airport.
Subject to regulatory approval, flight SQ310 will operate on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The inaugural flight will depart Singapore for Gatwick Airport at 2355hrs (local time) on 21 June 2024 and arrive in London at 0625hrs (local time) on 22 June 2024.
The return leg, flight SQ309, will operate from Gatwick Airport to Singapore on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The inaugural return flight will depart at 1015hrs (local time) on 22 June 2024 and arrive in Singapore at 0620hrs on 23 June 2024. The early morning arrival offers customers options to connect to SIA and Scoot flights to destinations across South East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
SIA’s long-haul A350-900s feature 253 seats in three cabin classes: 42 in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class, and 187 in Economy Class.
London’s Gatwick Airport is the ideal gateway for travellers looking to explore the capital and the South East of England. The airport also offers transport services into central London, with trains connecting travellers directly to major hubs such as London Blackfriars, London Bridge, City Thameslink, St. Pancras International, and London Victoria, where a number of key tourist attractions are located.
The addition of Gatwick increases the number of European destinations in the SIA network to 141, reflecting its firm commitment to enhancing its connectivity to this key region.
