Singapore Airlines has announced that it will start a new service between Singapore and Brussels in October 2020.
The four weekly flights to the Belgian capital will be operated by Airbus A350-900 jets.
As reported by Routesonline.com, it is not the first time that Singapore Airlines starts a service to Brussels: In 1979, the airline launched a service to Brussels with stops in Dubai and Athens. Back then, this flight was operated by Boeing 707. Later, it added a stop in Colombo on the way to Brussels and deployed DC10 aircraft on the route. Until April 2003, the carrier offered a Boeing 747 service from Singapore via Brussels to Manchester.
Singapore Airlines already operates non-stop flights from Amsterdam and Dusseldorf in the wider ‘Benelux’ and western Germany area. Furthermore, its long-haul route network includes various European capitals, for example London, Copenhagen, Zurich, Rome, Stockholm and Paris.
