Tokyo Haneda slots awarded to SIA

Singapore Airlines has reportedly been granted slots to commence twice daily Singapore-Tokyo Haneda service from Oct-2011, in addition to the same frequency into Narita (Business Traveller, 24-Feb-2010). Other slots are expected to open up for Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei, with further possibilities for other cities in Mainland China to join Beijing and Shanghai. It is also expected that upon the commencement of the Winter 2010/11 schedule, both Japan Airlines and ANA will switch their late-night slots to Hong Kong to daytime flights. Among the non-stop routes being considered from Europe are ones from Paris, London Heathrow, Amsterdam and Frankfurt.
