SQ231 In January 2005

Thu Aug 12, 2004 2:59 pm

I have just looked at SIA's timetable for January 2005. SQ231 from SIN to SYD leaves at 1:05am. Usually it leaves around midnight. Does anyone know why is this flight departing so late?

retiming due to day light saving maybe?
I know it usually leaves at 0010 and arrives at around 0900 perhaps since if it left at 0010 it would be arriving at 1000.

Hello... the Sydney Airport curfew comes into effect at 2300H. How can a flight depart at 0105H in the morning?

Hello Ryanair

This flight departs from Singapore, not Sydney. From my understanding, SIN does not have a curfew.

Looks as if the flight has been re-timed to leave at 0105am. I looked quickly in the CRS and it appears as though it is that way 27March and then it reverts to a 0020 departure time. My guess is the arrival into SYD was re-timed
