35 Years of Non Stop Operations

Singapore Airlines celebrates the 35th anniversary of its operations between Singapore and Türkiye this year.

The first flight of Singapore Airlines to Istanbul Atatürk Airport took place on 29 October 1987. This flight carried the slogan 'Singapore Airlines will be the first Southeast Asian Airline to fly where East meets West'. These flights helped to establish the first permanent relations between Türkiye and Singapore in terms of tourism, culture, economy and politics.

Singapore Airlines started its flights in 1987 with the Boeing 747-SUD and later made many flights with the B747, B772, B773 models. As of December 1, 2019, it continues its flights between Istanbul and Singapore 4 times a week with the A350 - 900, which is the most modern aircraft model in its fleet. SIA Group has one of the youngest and most fuel efficient fleets with an average age of 6 years and 3 months.

In 1987, Singapore Airlines flew to Istanbul from various and varying intermediate destinations such as Frankfurt, Manchester, Dhahran, Dubai and Athens, respectively. Since 2010, it has started to operate direct flights between Istanbul and Singapore.

Singapore Airlines, which has not left Türkiye under any circumstances for 35 years, plans to continue to be the cultural, commercial and humanitarian bridge between Türkiye and Singapore.
