SQ to resume some flights

Singapore Airlines will resume scheduled passenger services to Auckland and Christchurch as part of its minimum connectivity network. 

The re-instatement of twice-weekly services to Auckland and once-weekly services to Christchurch from Tuesday 9 June, will mark the first scheduled passenger flights to the cities since SQ ceased operations in March following the closure of New Zealand and Singapore’s borders due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Singapore Airlines’ general manager New Zealand, Kenny Teo, says the reintroduction of flights to the two cities is a small step towards re-establishing the airline’s New Zealand network. ‘There is still a long way to go before any significant and meaningful return of capacity is possible.

‘We are committed to ensuring New Zealand remains globally connected in a Covid-safe manner during these challenging times, whether it be keeping key trade channels open or allowing for essential travel to occur,’ Teo says.

The addition of Auckland and Christchurch services to the minimum connectivity network will be in place through to 31 July, however could be subject to change pending SQ’s continued review of the international travel environment.
