Singapore Airlines’ first flight from Singapore to Stockholm landed safely at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport just before 9am on Tuesday morning 30th May 2017. The inaugural flight, which left Singapore’s Changi airport just after midnight, was greeted by the traditional water salute.
The five times weekly Singapore to Stockholm flight makes a quick stop enroute in Moscow and complements the existing Singapore to Copenhagen service. Flight SQ362 and the return leg SQ 361 use SIA’s latest-generation aircraft, the Airbus A350-900.
Passengers on the inaugural flight out of Singapore enjoyed a departure party, with songs and Swedish themed refreshments at the special boarding gate event prior to departure. Each passenger was presented with a commemorative certificate, and a special goodie bag containing a batik luggage belt, weighing scale and a Dala Horse cosmetic pouch.
What to do in Stockholm?
Sweden is well known throughout the world for Swedish style and the natural beauty of the countryside. This is evident in their well known and stylish exports largely focused on furniture, homewares and transport. The most populous city in the Nordic region, Stockholm is a vibrant capital with something to offer business and leisure travellers of all ages. Discover the Old Town, Gamla Stan, the many museums, or head for the great outdoors. Get out of town and go north to enjoy the picturesque and majestic Northern Lights in the Swedish Lapland.
Your flight experience on the A350
The A350-900 promises passengers a more comfortable travelling experience. The aircraft offers features including higher ceilings, larger windows, more space and lighting designed to reduce jetlag. The aircraft carries 253 passengers across three classes, 42 in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class and 187 in Economy Class.
Singapore Airlines sees the A350 forming a key part of the Airline’s fleet in coming years. Its inclusion in the line-up has supported the introduction of new services including non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco. This helps boost connectivity to and through the Singapore hub in Changi airport.
This new service is part of the joint venture agreement between Singapore Airlines and Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). The agreement took effect in 2013 and covers flights between Scandinavia and Singapore. SAS has also commenced codeshare on the new services.
