Singapore Airlines signs UK partnership with Flybe

Singapore Airlines is vastly increasing its accessibility to UK consumers with the announcement of a new partnership with top UK regional airline, Flybe.

The exciting collaboration means that over 100 Singapore Airlines destinations across south-east Asia and Australasia are now more accessible than ever for UK consumers.

Customers from 19 UK towns and cities are now able to book to fly with Singapore Airlines long-haul, to also include Flybe connections departing from their local airport.

From the UK, Singapore Airlines currently flies four times daily from London Heathrow and daily from Manchester to Singapore for onward connections.

Beginning October 30th, 2016, however, available destinations from Manchester will increase beyond connections to Asia and Australasia to also include the United States, as the airline will launch its first ever transatlantic route from the UK – Manchester to Houston – to complement the long-standing Manchester-Singapore flight.

The new Flybe partnership opens up additional connections via Amsterdam, Paris Charles de Gaulle and Dusseldorf, with several of the cities now able to connect to Singapore Airlines’ vast array of destinations for the first time.

Sheldon Hee, Singapore Airlines general manager UK & Ireland, said: “Singapore Airlines is very pleased to announce its new partnership with Flybe.

“It enables us to provide greater opportunities for UK customers to access the high-quality customer service and comfort that Singapore Airlines is known for, all from their local airport.

“This collaboration builds on our efforts to find new ways for UK customers to access our flights from closer to home; adding to the coach-fly and rail-fly partnerships we pioneered in recent years.

“Moving forward, we aim to continue providing ever more convenient options for our customers to fly with Singapore Airlines and to experience our multi award-winning service.”

The new partnership comes after the news this year that the international airline celebrated 45 years of flying from London Heathrow in June and 30 years of flying from Manchester Airport in April, where it is now the longest serving long-haul international carrier.
