Singapore Airlines (SIA) has confirmed the return of its non-stop Manchester-Houston service, three months after the airline restarted direct flights from Manchester to Singapore.
The first departures will take place on December 1st.
With an A350-900 aircraft, the route will fly three times weekly to and from Houston, with the goal of gradually increasing to its previous frequency.
Passengers will enjoy comfortable trips and attentive cabin crew service on state-of-the-art fuel-efficient aircraft with a choice of 42 business, 24 premium economy, and 187 economy class seats.
The relationship between Singapore Airlines and Manchester Airport is one of the longest on record.
The airline had been the airport’s longest-serving long-haul carrier, having been in operation since 1986 until the Covid-19 outbreak forced 98 percent of its flights worldwide to be grounded in March of last year.
In 2016, Singapore Airlines began service to Houston, marking the 30th anniversary of its Manchester operations.
The flight was Singapore Airlines’ first transatlantic service from the United Kingdom.
The airline launched the first commercial A350 flight from Manchester Airport in 2017, and the plane also made its debut on the Singapore-Manchester-Houston route.
Singapore Airlines’ general manager of the United Kingdom and Ireland, Mohamed Rafi Mar, said: “We are delighted to resume our Houston flights and offer more travel options to our passengers from the Manchester region, after relaunching our flights to Singapore in the summer.
“Singapore Airlines looks forward to welcoming our customers on board our flights, where they will continue to enjoy our thoughtfully designed cabins and award-winning service.”
