Channel NewsAsia - 39 minutes ago
SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines (SIA) has reinstated its full European flight schedule.
The airline said in a statement that customers who had booked on scheduled flights to and from Europe will now be able to travel as planned.
"At this point, we are able to resume operations as scheduled, as all airspace at destinations to which we operate has opened. We are also looking into the possibility of mounting additional flights, and using aircraft with larger capacity on certain routes, where possible," it said.
It added that customers who had their previous flights cancelled will be re—booked on departing flights, subject to availability.
Priority will be given to special needs or elderly customers, and those with infants or young children. Following that, customers who have the earliest original departure dates will be assigned seats on the flights.
It advised customers to proceed to airports only if they have confirmed tickets.
SIA said any changes or updates will be provided through its website.
