Singapore Airlines has announced a new service to Kuwait, with effect from 15 March 2009.

The new service will operate via Abu Dhabi using the B772, hence increasing services to the UAE capital from 3 per week to daily.

CAI is also set for an increase and the DXB stopovers on this route will be making a come-back!

Kuwait! That's an interesting destination. Is there much demand between Singapore and Kuwait? Kuwait Airways used to fly to Singapore I think not too long ago.

I have never flown one with First. They are Business and Economy only. The Business is the old "space bed".

Will SQ have fifth freedom rights between AUH and KWI? That could be the reason for the extension of the route!!

Well, that and the fact that possibly the timing of the return flight had the plane sitting at AUH for too long...

Best of luck to SQ!!

Thanks for the clarification. I just never boarded one, anyway I stand corrected.

The 777's deployed to AUH are in the regional config, hence without the Space Bed. They are also two-class only as well.

That is good news! Do you think DOH will ever be added to SQ's wide network? Possibly they could make an extention of BAH-DOH-SIN or something...

DOH could be a possibility as SQ have held several meetings with airport officials over there to discuss their Mid-East expansion. I would assume that if AUH improves, and KWI shows good results, SQ would look at more destinations in the region.

Singapore recently signed an OSA with Kuwait. If KWI proves to be viable for SQ, we may eventually see them extending their flights beyond KWI to points in the US or Europe.


There's always a better way to fly...

So with DXB stopover for CAI flights, plus those to DME and IST, how many flights per day does SQ have in total to DXB?

Maybe SQ should make the SIN-IAH stop KWI or DXB instead of DME.


When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Regional. SQA/H will be retired though in the next 2 years.

 checkmark  Singapore has also just signed an FTA with the Gulf states, and this is only bound to increase business travel further in the coming times between the regions. I can imagine SQ doing either SIN-DXB-DOH or SIN-AUH-DOH sooner than later - may be when the A330s come in.

I wouldn't be surprised if this happens to be the general sentiment of most travelers. The quality of products across SQ's fleet has started to differ quite a bit, and as I discussed in a recent SQ brand analysis, the experience on the 744s and 772s can be quite a shocker. Even the crew dreads flying these SQ planes these days. Any idea when SQ is getting the rest of A380s and A330s? These should certainly come as a relief.



Airlines are in the service business, not transport. Brand matters...

That is a good news indeed, SQ will be the 3rd airline from the far east. TG, CA are currently flying to KWI on a regular schedule. Looking forward to see more airlines at KWI.

Really glad that DXB-CAI-DXB are back...I guess the dedicated SIN-CAIs weren't doing too well (most likely very low yield). CAI-DXB and vice versa are very dense city pairs.
