Singapore Airlines to add new direct flight to Southeast Asia in 2024

Singapore Airlines will expand its 2024 network with a direct service from London Gatwick (LGW) to Singapore Changi Airport. 

The new five-times weekly service, which commences on June 22 2024, will offer “greater choice and connectivity to Southeast Asia and beyond”, with possible transfers to Australia and New Zealand.

A promotional lead-in fare of £645pp return to Singapore will be included. Flights are available to book now.

Passengers can travel from LGW to Singapore on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Meanwhile, the Singapore to LGW route operates on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The new service will complement the airline’s four daily flights from London Heathrow and five-times weekly flights from Manchester, increasing to 38 direct flights a week from the UK to Singapore.

“Mohamed Rafi Mar, General Manager UK & Ireland at Singapore Airlines, said: “We are excited to announce London Gatwick as our third UK gateway, offering customers more choice to Southeast Asia and beyond. There is growing demand for travel to Singapore, and as the exclusive airline providing a direct service from Gatwick, now is a great time to come onboard and experience our world-class service from this internationally recognised airport.”

Stewart Wingate, CEO at London Gatwick, added: “For passengers across London and the South East, the new route will provide huge connectivity potential, not only to the fantastic destination of Singapore, but more widely across Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand. With significant increases in trade between the UK and Singapore in recent years, the service also provides exciting opportunities for local and regional businesses.”
