Singapore Airlines is adding a new long-haul destination to its route network. As of late 2020, the airline will begin flying between its home base of Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) and Brussels (BRU).

The new flight — a relaunch of a route it operated until 2003 — will operate with 4x weekly service as of 25 October 2020. The flights will operate on the following schedule:

  • SQ304 Singapore (SIN) 11:55 p.m. Departure ⇒ Brussels (BRU) 6:50 a.m. (+1) Arrival — Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays
  • SQ303 Brussels (BRU) 11:20 a.m. Departure ⇒ Singapore 6:55 a.m. (+1) Arrival — Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays

For the flight, Singapore will utilise one of its Airbus A350-900 aircraft. Singapore’s A359s feature a three-class configuration: economy, premium economy and business. In the business-class cabin, there are a total of 42 lie-flat seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, each with 28 inches of width and 60 inches of pitch.

In premium economy, you can expect 24 recliner seats, which are arranged in a 2-4-2 configuration, each featuring 19 inches of width and 38 inches of pitch.

Finally, the economy cabin features 187 seats in a 3-3-3 configuration, with each seat offering 32 inches of pitch and 18 inches of width.

Tickets for the new flight, which is still subject to government approval, will go on sale from 17 December.

Singapore’s KrisFlyer programme features a zone-based award chart, meaning award redemptions are set. You can fly between Singapore and Brussels for 38,000 KrisFlyer miles at the saver level one-way in economy (70,000 advantage level), 64,500 KrisFlyer miles at the saver level one-way in premium economy (120,000 advantage level) or 92,000 KrisFlyer miles at the saver level one-way in business class (220,000 advantage level).

In addition to the new Brussels route, the United Kingdom also falls into the same band of awards. Meaning, if you wanted to fly between London and Singapore, you could do so for the same number of miles. Singapore’s KrisFlyer programme can be a valuable one for U.K.-based flyers. If you don’t have any KrisFlyer miles in your account, they can be easy to rack up by transferring them at a 1:1 ratio from the American Express U.K. Membership Rewards programme.
