Singapore to Bandung by SilkAir
The Bandung flights will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays with Airbus A319 aircraft. This will increase to five times weekly during the Northern Winter season that takes effect from 30 October 2011.
The third largest city in Indonesia, Bandung is a popular weekend getaway for its cool climate, attractive factory outlet shopping and lush golf courses. There are also a number of tourist attractions nearby Bandung, including the Tangkuban Perahu volcano crater and the Kawah Putih volcano lake.
Singapore to Changsha, Hunan Province by SilkAir
Changsha will be served by three weekly services on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays with Airbus A320 aircraft. Detailed flight schedules are listed in the Annex.
Changsha, the capital city of Hunan province in south-central China, is famous for its culinary delights and features a number of points of interest that are an integral part of the country’s revolutionary history. Changsha is also the gateway to the picturesque city of Zhangjiajie, located on the border of Hunan province. Within this city lies the Wulingyuan Scenic Area, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992 for its unique sandstone pillars, pristine waters, lush vegetation and a variety of flora and fauna.
Customers interested in these two destinations are advised to note that the new flights may not be immediately available in the computer reservations system due to the lead-time required in making system updates.
