Singaporeans going to Japan for fun, take note.

To meet the growing demand between Singapore and Japan, Singapore Airlines (SIA) will be adding a fourth daily service to Tokyo's Haneda Airport starting from Dec. 28, 2018.

Japan is one of the top travel destinations for many Singaporeans.

More services from S'pore to Japan

SIA announced on Wednesday, July 18, that the additional flight will increase SIA's daily services to Tokyo to six each day, including two daily flights to Narita Airport.

A Boeing 777-300ER plane will be used, which will add over 1,800 seats per week on the same route.

With the change, the SIA Group will also be operating a combined 105 weekly services between Singapore and Japan.

This includes:

• the regional subsidiary SilkAir's three weekly services to Hiroshima,

• and low-cost subsidiary Scoot's 11 weekly services to Osaka,

• four weekly services to Sapporo,

• and 17 weekly services to Tokyo's Narita Airport.

SIA added that the new flights are subject to regulatory approvals and tickets will be made available for sale through the various distribution channels.
