Following a more than 20-year hiatus, SIA will be touching down in the Belgian capital next spring.
Nonstop services between the Lion City and Brussels are set to become a reality on April 5, 2024, when Singapore Airlines launches four-times-weekly flights on the route. The carrier is deploying the long-haul variant of its Airbus A350-900s, which feature 42 seats in business class, 24 in premium economy, and 187 in standard economy for a total capacity of 253 passengers.
Subject to regulatory approval, outbound flight SQ304 will depart Singapore on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 11:55 p.m. to arrive at Brussels-Zaventem Airport at 7:20 a.m. the next morning. The return sector, operated as flight SQ303, will then depart Brussels on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 12:10 p.m. and return to Changi at 6:55 a.m. the following day.
Brussels—a vibrant regional crossroads that is home to both the European Union and NATO—will become the 13th destination in Europe for the carrier. Dai Hao Yu, Singapore Airlines’ Acting Senior Vice President for Marketing Planning, said in a statement, “The launch of this service adds another historical and charming city to SIA’s list of destinations. It also gives our customers who are traveling from Europe an additional point to connect to Singapore, as well as the wider Asia-Pacific region via our hub at Changi Airport. SIA will continue to review its network and find opportunities to offer more options for our customers.”
