  • Beginning in October, SIA and Scoot will operate new flights on the Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad routes.

As SIA and Scoot modify their capacity and network in response to shifting demand patterns, the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group will restructure its services to Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad.

The following changes are planned, subject to regulatory approvals:

From November 5, 2023, Scoot will offer daily service between Singapore and Chennai, while SIA will switch to a twice-daily schedule starting on October 29, 2023. As a result, the SIA Group will operate between Singapore and Chennai 21 times per week instead of just 17. On its Chennai routes, SIA will use its Airbus A350-900, Boeing 737-8, and Boeing 787-10 aircraft, while Scoot will use its Airbus A320 fleet. After a three-year hiatus, this transfer of services will bring Scoot back to Chennai and give customers on this crucial route more options.

From October 29, 2023, SIA will take over Scoot’s daily services between Singapore and Hyderabad. The airline will gradually increase its frequency between the two cities from seven to twelve times per week. The additional options for passengers travelling from Hyderabad to and beyond Singapore will be provided by the new five times weekly morning services, which will be run by SIA’s Boeing 737-8 aircraft. SIA’s Airbus A350s will fly the daily night flights. As a result, SIA’s full-service product will completely serve Hyderabad.

From October 29, 2023, SIA will run twice-daily flights between Singapore and Bengaluru using its Airbus A350s, with the exception of Thursdays and Sundays, when the morning flight will be run by the Boeing 737-8. Three times per week SQ512 and SQ513 Airbus 350 services will no longer be offered by SIA. In order to provide customers with better connectivity from Bengaluru to important destinations in the network, the airline will operate 14 times weekly as opposed to the current 16 times.

The SIA Group is committed to India and is able to provide customers with our market-leading products and services to even more cities within this crucial market, according to Sy Yen Chen, General Manager India, Singapore Airlines. The strength of the airline portfolio within the SIA Group is demonstrated by the restructuring of our services to Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad. This gives us the ability to modify our services as needed to give our clients more choices and connect them to our larger Group network.

The resumption of Scoot’s operations in Chennai is in line with our Group’s network strategy to optimise resources and better match capacity with demand, said Brian Torrey, general manager of Scoot India. For us, India has always been a significant market. We can now connect and serve individuals and families in Tamil Nadu, India’s most southern state, by including Chennai in our route network. We are overjoyed to resume flights to Chennai and anticipate soon welcoming our cherished passengers on board our expanded network.

Customers with confirmed reservations for travel beginning on October 29, 2023, will be rebooked on SIA or Scoot flights as necessary. The customer service teams from SIA and Scoot will gradually get in touch with the affected customers to help with the re-accommodation or refund, as necessary.

While Scoot will operate 44 weekly flights to and from six Indian cities (Amritsar, Chennai, Coimbatore, Thiruvananthapuram, Tiruchirapalli, and Visakhapatnam), SIA will operate 96 weekly flights to and from eight Indian cities (Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, and Mumbai).
