Singapore Airlines has launched flights from Singapore Changi Airport to Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport via Barcelona.
Sao Paulo is Singapore Airlines’ first destination in South America, which has become the sixth continent in its route network.
The new three-times-weekly service also strengthens Singapore Changi Airport’s status as a global hub.
“We are pleased to add Sao Paulo to our growing network of destinations. With such high profile events as the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games lined up in Brazil, we are confident that travel demand to Brazil will be strong. Similarly, we hope that Brazilians will take the opportunity to visit Singapore and use Changi Airport as a gateway to the Asia Pacific region,” said Singapore Airlines’ Executive Vice-President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah.
Boeing 777-300ER aircraft are being operated on the new route, fitted with the airline’s newest cabin products in all three classes.
