Sadly, Singapore Airlines will end service to Madrid at the end of October. Singapore Airlines offers 747-400 service to Singapore via Paris. This is according to the link below, though flights are still in reservation systems.

I guess it's the other way around, it's sad for MAD to loose SQ. Good for SQ since it was probably loosing money or not earning enough to sustain the route.
The plane had a stop in Paris, so they can codeshare with JK on that final leg and don't fly the 744 not so full.



Come fly Mexicana, to Mexico!

Gee Madrid hasnt been good with flights to Asia, I believe the only East Asian airline currently flying into MAD is THAI.

Funny, I was thinking just the other day, SQ has maintained 2 flights per week to Madrid since it launched the route back in 1992, and normally if they can't increase frequencies, SQ tends to drop the route.
A shame really, however I guess if the money isn't there then it will have to go.
Makes sense really to codeshare with partners Spanair and LH, probably out of Frankfurt or Paris.
At one point, Madrid also had Malaysia Airlines , Korean Air and Garuda.

This will only continue as airline alliances grow... Why should SQ fly to Madrid when they can code share with other Star Alliance members from many airports.

SQ nor MAD will lose out, as folks who need to fly to Spain, will no matter how they get there even if they have to use 2 carriers with a connection in London let say.



Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

I hope THAI won't drop MAD and codeshare with other star partners. THAI has 5th freedom right from FCO to MAD, may be that's why it is doing better than SQ on MAD route

Hi all just a little correction here I thought that the SQ service was via ZRH and not PAR. Can anybody confirm this?.

In the last year the service definitely was through Paris, not sure how it was before.
Are there going to be any changes in SQ Paris schedule, to improve the utilization of their 744s ? Can this be related to the lease of 744s to IB?

Before serving Madrid as a tag on to the Paris flight, SQ used to serve the Spanish capital via Zurich for quite a while. I even think that at a certain point in time, Madrid got 3 weekly frequencies. SQ has in recent years also withdrawn from two other European destinations: Brussels and Berlin.

It doesn't surpise me all people we take to Spain will go SQ to AB) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA then LH to MAD or BCN due to the way the fares are structured and very conveneint at the same time.

Airmale and IBERIA747, you guys forgot Cairo!!!!!!!

They have 3x weekly A320 flights that route MAD-BCN-CAI-BCN-MAD, and 3x weekly B757 flights that route MAD-CAI-MAD (summer only). That brings a total of 6x weekly flights. Their inaugural MAD-CAI-MAD flight was operated by one of their A346s (1st A346 at CAI).
