Singapore Airlines to Fly to Abu Dhabi

9 January 2006

Singapore Airlines to Fly to Abu Dhabi

Singapore Airlines will commence a three-times-weekly service to Abu Dhabi from 1 March 2006. This will be the Airline’s second destination in the United Arab Emirates, complementing existing flights to Dubai.

The 2-class Boeing 777-200 services will depart Singapore on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday of each week, at 1300 hours, arriving at 1630 hours the same day. From Abu Dhabi, the flights will continue on to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. (Please refer to Annex for full flight schedule).

With the introduction of these services Singapore Airlines will serve the United Arab Emirates thirteen times weekly: ten times to Dubai and three times to Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven Emirates that comprise the UAE and is its federal capital as well. An exporter of oil since the 1960s, Abu Dhabi is a modern and prosperous state and in recent times, this Emirate has emerged as a major financial hub in the Middle East, while also enhancing its reputation as a leading Middle Eastern tourist destination.

Abu Dhabi offers a range of tourist activities. From numerous shopping malls, to camel rides and bedouin-style feasts under starry nights in the desert, tourists will find plenty to do in this city.

Singapore Airlines will be the only airline operating between Abu Dhabi and Singapore.
