Singapore has announced a change to its Manchester line up this Autumn.
It will introduce a new direct service between Manchester and Singapore, five times a week from 30th October.
This will see the current Manchester to Singapore, via Munich route terminated.
The airline, that has flown out of Manchester for 30 years, will also add its first transatlantic route at the same time- the new Manchester and Houston route will fly five times a week, making it the first transatlantic service from the UK.
Speaking about the exciting new Houston route, Ken O’Toole, the airport’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “The number of direct long haul routes from Manchester to the States has grown significantly in recent years and in 2017 there will now be more than 2 million seats available on flights between the two locations. This is the latest example of a route launching at Manchester that is not available anywhere else outside of London.
“It underlines the role Manchester Airport is playing in connecting the North with its most important business and tourism markets.”
