Singapore Airlines is to launch a five-times-a-week service from a second London airport to Singapore.
The flights from London Gatwick will start on 22 June 2024, with a promotional lead in fare of £649 on sale from tomorrow.
The service will complement the airline’s four daily flights from London Heathrow and five flights a week from Manchester.
Singapore Airlines also claims to offer the fastest connecting service from the UK to Sydney, Australia, in 21 hours 40 minutes.
The new flight will leave Gatwick’s North Terminal at 10.15am and arrive in Singapore at 6:20am the following day.
Singapore Airlines said the early arrival allows passengers to ‘seamlessly’ transfer onto flights to southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand at Changi Airport.
The 13-hour flight will be operated by an Airbus A350-900 in three cabins, with 42 seats in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy and 187 in Economy.
