Sin­ga­pore Air­lines get­ting new Bogota con­nec­tions

Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

Sin­ga­pore Air­lines will be get­ting new con­nec­tions to the Colom­bian cap­i­tal Bogota this month as part of a code­share agree­ment with Lat­inAmer­i­can car­rier, Avianca.

In a few days, Sin­ga­pore Air­lines’ “SQ”code will be placed on Avianca’s flights be­tween Bogota and Barcelona and Lon­don. Avianca’s“AV”code will also ap­pear on Sin­ga­pore Air­lines’ flights be­tween the two Euro­pean cities and Sin­ga­pore.

Back in July, Sin­ga­pore Air­lines be­gan fly­ing its A350 to Barcelona twice a week, cut­ting out the ser­vice’s pre­vi­ous stopover in Mi­lan-Malpensa Air­port. The car­rier flies both its A380 and B777-300ER on its Sin­ga­poreLon­don routes, though flight SQ318 that con­nects best with Avianca’s flight AV121 uses the B777. This con­nec­tion pro­vides the bet­ter over­all flight du­ra­tion at 28 hours and 30 min­utes.

As of Jan­uary 2, Avianca flies its B787 Dream­liner on all its routes be­tween Bogota and Europe.

De­tails of the men­tioned Sin­ga­pore (SIN)-Lon­don (LHR)Bogota (BOG) ser­vice are in the table be­low.

“This new code­share agree­ment with Star Al­liance part­ner Avianca pro­vides our cus­tomers with seam­less con­nec­tions to Bogota, the fi­nan­cial and com­mer­cial cen­tre of Colom­bia,” said Sin­ga­pore Air­lines’ se­nior vice president of mar­ket­ing plan­ning, Tan Kai Ping. sin­ga­pore­air.com; avianca.com
