Changi Airport will create another first once it officially offers the new Singapore-Warsaw flight link starting May 15, 2018.
Last Nov. 17, Changi Airport Group (CAG) revealed that LOT Polish Airlines will initially service three flights per week, and will then be gradually increased to four by July.
Changi Airlines, on the other hand, will send the Boeing B-787-8 airplane which offers a three-class configuration consisting of economy, premium economy, and business cabins. This development will translate to around 1,008 one-way weekly seats.
Flights from Singapore to Warsaw (Poland) to Start in May 2018
When this new service comes in full operation, it will be the first flight link to Warsaw, Poland from Singapore. Furthermore, passengers get flight connection access to several Polish cities and some parts of Eastern and Central Europe through LOT’s flight network from the Warsaw Chopin Airport.
Similarly, LOT travellers will gain flight link access to some 47 cities in Southeast Asia as well as in the Southwest Pacific region.
According to Mr Lim Chiang Kiat, managing director of Changi Airport Group, the airline company has been extensively building up its flight network across Europe, and he attributed this new development to their fruitful collaboration with LOT.
A lot of the travellers from Asia are becoming interested in visiting Eastern European countries such as Hungary, Croatia, and the Czech Republic. The new flight link from Singapore to Warsaw will bring further convenience and offer different options to passengers to get to the abovementioned countries according to Mr. Lim.
Just in the first 10 months of this year, there have been over 3.6 million passengers who have travelled between Singapore and Europe, which unofficially translates to a 7.8 per cent increase from the previous year.
12 more airlines are expected to offer direct flights from Singapore to 18 European cities in the first half of 2018. The latest three European city links which have been added to Changi’s growing flight network were Dusseldorf, Athens, and Stockholm back in 2016.
