December 27, 2019: As of October 25, 2020, Singapore Airlines will inaugurate a non-stop, A350 service linking its home hub Singapore Changi International Airport with Brussels, Belgium. The route will be flown four times a week.
Subject to regulatory approval, the flight will depart Singapore on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The return will be operated on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
“As a key gateway to Asia, Singapore is an important new destination in our growing Asian network,” said Arnaud Feist, CEO of operator Brussels Airport Company.
Singapore Airlines’ senior vice president marketing planning, Tan Kai Ping added, “We are excited to launch services to Brussels, a city that is both an important economic and political hub in Europe.”
Currently, 11 percent of Belgian exports are destined for Asia and the trend is upwards. “To support the economic growth of our country and our businesses, Brussels Airport aims to expand its network,” a statement from Brussels Airport said.
The introduction of the new route allows Singapore Airlines to enhance the Benelux’s connection to Singapore with non-stop flights from Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, and Brussels.
