Singapore Airlines is boosting its flights to and from Milan to once per day starting June 24, giving travellers flying out of Singapore a Monday flight and those departing Milan a flight on Tuesday that were previously unavailable to them.
Currently, Singapore Airlines flies six times per week between Singapore and Milan Malpensa (MXP), though it does so in a rather curious fashion utilising two different flight numbers that vary depending on the day of the week but nevertheless share the same schedule.
As of June 24, both flights departing Singapore (SQ378 and SQ356) will do so at 2330 and arrive in MXP that morning at 0610. The return flights out of MXP (SQ377 and SQ355) will depart at 1300 and arrive back in Singapore at 0700 the following morning.
|SQ378||Singapore (SIN)||Milan (MXP)||2330||0610||Tue, Wed, Sat|
|SQ356||Singapore (SIN)||Milan (MXP)||2330||0610||Mon, Thu, Fri, Sun|
|SQ377||Milan (MXP)||Singapore (SIN)||1300||0700+1||Wed, Thu, Sun|
|SQ355||Milan (MXP)||Singapore (SIN)||1300||0700+1||Mon, Tue, Fri, Sat|
As with the current six weekly flights, the additional seventh will be operated by Singapore Airlines’ Airbus A350-900 aircraft, configured for long-haul travel. These aircraft are laid out with 42 business class seats (pictured above) in a 1-2-1 set up, 24 premium economy seats (pictured below) laid out eight across in a 2-4-2 format, and 187 economy class seats in a nine-across 3-3-3 set up.
