Singapore Airlines To Launch Flights To Sao Paulo

Singapore Airlines has announced it will launch 3 times weekly flights between Singapore and the Brazilian city of Sao Paolo, via Barcelona in Spain. To be launched in March 2011, the service adds South America to the airline’s route network, making it one of the few carriers in the world operating services to 6 continents.

 

New Singapore – Barcelona – Sao Paolo Flights

Details of the flights have not been announced by Singapore Airlines, but the airline has revealed that 3 of the current daily Singapore-Milan-Barcelona flights will be operated nonstop, continuing on to Sao Paolo’s Guarulhos International Airport. On the Barcelona-Sao Paolo sector, flights will be operated under a codeshare agreement with Star Alliance partner Spanair, which will provide Singapore Airlines with feeder traffic from other parts of Spain and Europe through the Barcelona hub.

 

Revised Services To Barcelona And Milan

Barcelona will continue to receive daily service from Singapore Airlines, with 4 flights continuing to operate via Milan each week. In addition, the Italian city will also receive new 3 times a week nonstop Singapore-Milan flights to retain daily service.

 

Singapore Airlines has been eyeing opportunities in South America for some time and its entry to Brazil will not only provide a link to Asia, but also provide greater choice for travel between both continents. The airline’s routing and onboard product will increase competition for the carriers flying to South America, including Middle Eastern rivals Emirates and Qatar Airways, who provide nonstop flights from their respective hubs in Dubai and Doha.
