In an update to its flight schedules, the Singapore Airlines Group announced through its website it will resume flights to San Francisco and Nagoya between December and January.
Separately, the airline group announced that Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will increase flight frequencies to select destinations that its budget subsidiary Scoot will temporarily suspend services to. This move will affect flights operated by Scoot to Kuala Lumpur (November 17), Manila (December 4), and Perth (December 5).
