SIA Group continues China expansion with new Dalian and Fuzhou services from Scoot and SilkAir

Premium Analysis

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group is continuing to pursue rapid expansion in China with the launch of services to Dalian by Scoot and to Fuzhou by SilkAir. The addition of Dalian and Fuzhou will extend the group's Chinese network to 25 destinations in Nov-2016.

Scoot launched Shenyang as a one-stop service via Qingdao in 2013; it is now upgrading the route to nonstop. Shenyang will give Singapore Changi 25 nonstop destinations in China - more than any other airport in Southeast Asia. Fuzhou is already served from Singapore, while Dalian will initially be served as a one-stop product via Qingdao.

Maintaining a leading network in China is an important component of the current SIA Group strategy. It is also essential, since SIA is unable to codeshare on domestic services within China due to regulatory restrictions.
