Singapore Airlines is reducing its operations to Jakarta by five weekly flights with effect from 1 December 2016, as directed by Indonesian Civil Aviation Authorities.
Singapore Airlines has been operating 63 flights per week to and from Jakarta since July 2013.
The Indonesian authorities have informed the Airline that five flights must be cut due to runway maintenance works at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. The five weekly flights being cut between Singapore and Jakarta are SQ962 and SQ963 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Earlier this month, the airline said it had to postpone plans for a thrice-weekly service linking Singapore, Jakarta and Sydney after Indonesia withdrew its approval. Runway maintenance work at the Jakarta airport was also cited as the reason.
