Singapore Airlines is beefing up its presence in Perth, with a fourth daily service to Singapore starting on October 28.
The new Boeing 777-200 service SQ214 will depart Perth at 5.30pm and arrive into Singapore at 10.45pm; the SQ213 return leg leaves Singapore at 7.55am for wheels-down into the WA capital at 1.10pm.
Earlier this month Singapore Airlines announced plans for a second daily Airbus A380 service between Melbourne and Singapore starting August 16.
Other changes rippling through SQ's 'Northern Winter' timetable include the introduction of an Airbus A380 on the SQ001/002 flight from SIngapore to Hong Kong and thence on to San Francisco, for the period December 28, 2012 to March 24, 2013. The superjumbo will replace that route's Boeing 777-300ER.
Also in line for some seasonal A380 love is the Singapore-Tokyo (Narita) SQ638/SQ637 service, which like Hong Kong will be that route's second daily A380 flight.
