SIA keen to boost Delhi, Chennai service

Singapore Airlines is contemplating adding more services to Delhi and Chennai to reduce bottlenecks and increase capacity, subject to the final outcome of bilateral air traffic negotiations between the two nations, according to the Press Trust of India. “We are hoping that the agreement between the Indian and the Singapore government comes through at the earliest and a more liberalised atmosphere is created,” Singapore Airlines General Manager India B K Ong said on Tuesday.

“We are facing several bottlenecks at Chennai and Delhi and we would like to increase services to meet the capacity requirement.”

The airline is keen to launch double-dailies to major cities, besides Mumbai where it already operates two flights a day, he said.
