SILKAIR will introduce thrice-weekly services to Hanoi starting June 5, 2012.
Subject to government approval, the new flights will be operated using Airbus A319/320 aircraft.
Together with Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) daily services, both airlines will offer a total of 10 round-trip services a week to Vietnam’s capital.
Meanwhile, SIA’s thrice-daily Singapore-London services will be operated using only Airbus A380 aircraft from June 1, 2012.
Currently, two of the services are operated with the A380, while one is operated with the Boeing 777-300ER.
The switch to the larger A380 will increase seat capacity on the route by 17 per cent a day.
