Singapore Airlines to increase flights from UAE capital

Singapore Airlines has announced a dramatic increase in flights from UAE capital Abu Dhabi to Singapore in spite of the credit crisis. 

According to Singapore Airlines’ general manager for the Gulf, Lim MeowSeng, the increased frequency from three to seven flights each week is down to Abu Dhabi’s strong position as a “prominent business and oil centre in the Middle East”.

MeowSeng added: “Singapore Airlines is proud to launch the additional services that would link global travellers to and from Abu Dhabi to Singapore.
