Brussels is an important European economic and political centre, and the launch of this service adds another historical and charming city to SIA’s list of destinations. It also gives our customers who are travelling from Europe an additional point to connect to Singapore, as well as the wider Asia-Pacific region via our hub at Changi Airport. SIA will continue to review its network and find opportunities to offer more options for our customers.said Dai Hao Yu, Acting Senior Vice President – Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines.
The addition of Brussels increases the number of European destinations in the SIA network to 13.
Apart from being the capital of Belgium, Brussels is also home to the European Union (EU) and is dubbed as the EU’s capital city. The secretariat of the Benelux and headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are also located in the city. It is the most densely populated city in Belgium with the highest gross domestic product (GDP) per capita. Brussels’ unique geographical location makes it an ideal hub for rail, road, and air traffic, earning the city the moniker The Crossroads of Europe.
