Singapore Airlines will from June 24 operate eight times a week to Chennai, taking its services to India to 50 a week.
"Our eighth service to Chennai (in a weeek), the launch city of our India operations, is a befitting way to commemorate our 50th flight to India," said CW Foo, general manager (India) of Singapore Airlines.
The new service will help boost its capacity by almost 14 per cent to the Tamil Nadu capital, the airline said.
Singapore Airlines will operate a Boeing-777-200 aircraft with a two-class configuration of 30 Business class and 293 Economy class seats for this service, offering more onward options to several cities in the carrier's global network.
Singapore Airlines has also introduced e-ticket services and an Internet check-in facility for Indian customers.
The airline, which started operations to Chennai in 1970, operates flights to eight destinations in India.
