As Chief Chairman of SIA, I'm dissapointed you chose to give us a link from an external source and not from the press release drafted by your public affairs department, which is below:


Singapore Airlines To Launch Services To Bangalore
27 January 2003

Singapore Airlines (SIA) customers bound for Bangalore, who at present travel via Chennai, will soon enjoy direct flights to this rapidly-growing city in the south of India. From 1 May 2003, SIA will operate thrice-weekly services using B777 aircraft.

Flight SQ430 will depart Singapore every Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 2050 hrs and arrive in Bangalore at 2220 hrs the same evening.

In the opposite direction, flight SQ429 will depart Bangalore at 2330 hrs every Monday, Thursday and Saturday and arrive in Singapore at 0610 hrs the following day.

SIA's Executive Vice-President for Marketing and the Regions, Mr Huang Cheng Eng, said: "We have a very strong commitment to expand direct links between India and Singapore, and Bangalore is one of India's fastest growing centres. I am sure Bangalore will prove to be a very popular new destination in our network and hope these services can help boost business and tourism in both countries."

Bangalore, which is India's fifth largest city, is the capital of Karnataka State and is known as the "Garden City" because of its large number of parks and trees. It is also a centre of India's rapidly growing high-technology industries, with a focus on computer software, aerospace research and biotechnology. It will become the fifth Indian city to be served by SIA, joining New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. SIA's wholly-owned subsidiary, SilkAir, operates to three Indian cities: Hyderabad, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram.

The new services to Bangalore mean that SIA will operate 27 non-stop flights per week to destinations in India, with SilkAir operating 10 services a week.

Oh dear. Most embarrassing Docpepz  Big grin

Anyway, I don't think it's going to be a 772ER, probably a normal 772.
