Singapore Airlines’ Impressive Expansion In India

Singapore Airlines has announced its intention to expand its operation in India. The prestigious carrier will be operating newer and larger aircraft as a result of the expansion, serving the vast Indian population of over 1.3 billion people.
As emerging economies such as India continue to develop, more consumers are traveling overseas, ensuring that these markets are increasingly attractive to airlines. And Singapore Airlines is now ready to extend its relationship with India, having begun flying to the nation nearly 50 years ago.

India is ranked as the second most significant market in Asia, after the world’s most populous nation China. Singapore Airlines, its regional subsidiary Silk Air, and the budget airline run by the company, Scoot, already service 13 cities across the country.

And David Lim, the general manager of Singapore Airlines, told The Week that Singapore Airlines has achieved “double-digit growth” in India over the last three years. This level of growth has emboldened the popular carrier to further expand its services to India.
This latest decision is indicative of a new approach of Singapore Airlines in India, with the flag-carrying airline of Singapore having introduced a variety of different aircraft and services to the country in recent years.

For example, in July, 2017, the airline debuted the Airbus A350 long haul aircraft in Mumbai, while the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft begun flying out of Delhi last year. And Singapore Airlines further expanded its Indian operation earlier this year, flying the A350 into Bengaluru and Kolkata, with plans to use its largest aircraft, the Airbus A380, out of Mumbai in the near future.
