Indonesian authorities have informed Singapore Airlines recently that they must cut five flights weekly from their Singapore – Jakarta schedule, due to runway maintenance works at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. As a result, Singapore Airlines will be reducing its operations to Jakarta by five weekly flights with effect from 1st December 2016, as directed by Indonesian civil aviation authorities.
Sngapore Airlines has been operating sixty-three flights per week to and from Jakarta since July 2013 and the reduction will see this drop to a weekly total of fifty-eight flights.
Singapore – Jakarta schedule cuts
The SIA flights between Singapore and Jakarta to be cut are the afternoon flight SQ962 and the returning SQ963, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Singapore Airlines has issued an apology for the inconvenience caused to passengers and have indicated that they will progressively contact customers with bookings on affected flights to accommodate them on alternative flights.
These schedule changes come in the wake of the announcement of the delay to the start of Singapore – Jakarta – Sydney flights, also due to the on-going runway maintenance work.
