Singapore Airlines (SIA) has added a second Scandinavian city to its route network. Operating five times a week from Singapore Changi Airport, SQ362 flies to Stockholm, via Moscow.
This will complement SIA’s existing flights to Copenhagen in Denmark, boosting connectivity between Southeast Asia and Northern Europe, in addition to meeting increasing demand for travel between Southwest Pacific and Northern Europe.
The new route is being served with the latest-generation aircraft, the Airbus A350-900. The first service to Stockholm departed Singapore Changi Airport at 0033hrs local time on 30 May (Tuesday) and arrived at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport at 0859hrs local time the same day. With the new flights, SIA will provide a direct link between Sweden and Singapore. 
Customers departing on the inaugural flight from Singapore were treated to a medley of song performances and an assortment of Swedish themed refreshments at a special boarding gate event just before their flight. In addition to a commemorative certificate, passengers also received an exclusive goodie bag containing a batik luggage belt with weighing scale and a Dala Horse cosmetic pouch.
Upon arrival at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport, the aircraft was greeted by a water cannon salute and a gate hold event was held to celebrate the arrival of the inaugural flight.
Stockholm, the most populous Nordic city, is a vibrant capital with something to offer business and leisure travellers of all ages. From soaking in the rich culture of Gamla Stan, or the Old Town, to museums, to the outdoors, visitors will have varied options to suit their travel interests and needs. 
Venturing further North, Sweden also  has much to offer with its picturesque views of the majestic Northern Lights in the Swedish Lapland.
With advanced technology and superior operating efficiency, the A350-900 offers customers an improved travelling experience with features such as higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra wide body and lighting designed to reduce jetlag. The aircraft are fitted with 253 seats, 42 of which are in Business Class, 24 in Premium Economy Class and 187 in Economy Class.
The A350 will form a key part of the Airline’s fleet in the years ahead, and has enabled introduction of new services such as non-stop flights between Singapore and San Francisco, helping to boost connectivity to and through the Singapore hub.
The new services are also part of the joint venture agreement between Singapore Airlines and Star Alliance partner Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) that took effect in 2013 covering flights between Scandinavia and Singapore. SAS has also commenced codeshare on the new services.
