Additionally, SIA will gradually increase its weekly service between Singapore and Hyderabad from seven to 12 times weekly. SIA will also take over Scoot’s daily services between the two cities.

As part of this move, SIA will also provide daily morning and evening services to Bengaluru, reports Hindustan Times. According to the reports, the Group’s passenger network encompassed 116 destinations spanning 36 countries and territories.
