SIA adds Milan, Barcelona routes

20th Jul 2006

Customers can fly on Singapore Airlines to Milan and Barcelona, two of Europe’s most exciting and stylish cities. The airline will operate the service three times a week to both cities, using Boeing B777-200ER (Extended Range) aircraft. Flights depart Singapore on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.

Flights will arrive at Milan’s Malpensa Airport early next morning, and from Milan, will continue on to Barcelona’s El Prat Airport. With the convenient morning arrival, customers can go about their business, work or start exploring the cities, after touch down.

Milan is Italy’s economic centre and home to the world’s leading luxury fashion brands. A treasure trove of iconic sights and a fashionista’s shopping paradise, Milan is a sprawling metropolis that successfully marries tradition and modernity. Among its top attractions are the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, where Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper” can be viewed, and La Scala Opera (Teatro alla Scala), the world-renowned opera house built in the 18th century.

Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city and the only city in the world to have nine UNESCO World Heritage buildings. A city steeped in the arts, culture and history, Barcelona attracts tourists from all over the world to pay homage to expressionist artist Picasso at the Picasso Museum and marvel at the avant-garde architecture of Antoni Gaudi at the La Sagrada Familia and the Guell Park.

Singapore Airlines is the only carrier flying between Asia Pacific, through Singapore and both Mediterranean cities. It has one of the largest route networks of any Asian-Pacific airline into Europe. With the addition of these new destinations, Singapore Airlines will fly 81 times weekly to 12 cities in Europe. The number of destinations in the Airlines’ route network will also increase to 65 in 35 countries.
