SIA to Launch a New Fifth Freedom Route



Come May 30, 2017, Singapore Airlines will extend its current Singapore – Moscow route to Stockholm with a five times-weekly service between the two European capitals, marking its second destination in Scandinavia after Copenhagen. This shorter leg can be booked on its own, allowing Sweden-based passengers to experience SIA’s world-class hospitality on their way to Russia. At the time of writing, SIA serves a four times-weekly service to Moscow.

The route—which is expected to take two hours and ten minutes—will be operated with the airline’s brand new A350-900 aircraft, seating up to 253 passengers across Business, Premium Economy, and Economy cabins. Boasting fully flat beds and direct aisle access, SIA’s Business Class seats should be a welcome change from the ones currently offered by European airlines within the continent.

While we think that added comfort is always a bonus, for a short flight like this, it’s foreseeable that many passengers may still opt for low-cost airlines purely because of the price point.

Would you rather fly SIA within Europe or choose a local carrier?
