Lufthansa is cancelling its Munich-Singapore route with the introduction of the 2012/13 winter schedule. As a result, the onward flight from Singapore to Jakarta, Indonesia, will no longer be operated. Singapore and Jakarta are currently served five times a week from Munich with an Airbus A340-300. Lufthansa will continue to operate a daily A380 service from Frankfurt to Singapore, but will no longer fly to Jakarta. The final flight from Munich to Singapore and onward to Jakarta will depart on 14 October 2012.
“We regret that in future Lufthansa will no longer provide a connection between Munich and these two capital cities in Asia. Given the current two-runway system at our Munich base, we will soon reach our limits in terms of expanding our flight schedule,” said Thomas Klühr, a member of the Lufthansa German Airlines Board, Munich & Direct Services. In future, Lufthansa will only be able to achieve traffic growth where there is still sufficient infrastructure.
Over the next few days, passengers who are already booked on flights from Munich to Singapore will be rebooked on a Lufthansa flight departing from Frankfurt, at no extra charge, and will be informed accordingly. Passengers for Jakarta will be rebooked on connecting Star Alliance flights.
