SIA to suspend flights to Abu Dhabi, Athens

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) will suspend services to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Athens in Greece, due to sustained weak performance of both routes.

The last flights to both cities will depart Singapore on October 26, 2012.

SIA said on Wednesday that the decision was a difficult one as the airline has been serving Athens since 1972 and Abu Dhabi since 2006.

It said the suspensions are in line with its policy to match capacity to prevailing market demand.

Customers who have confirmed tickets issued before May 16 for travel to and from Abu Dhabi and Athens after October 26, or after October 27 for the return Abu Dhabi-Singapore service, can get refunds, without administrative fees or penalties.

This also applies to KrisFlyer redemption tickets.

SIA will contact affected customers to offer alternative travel options.

It will continue to serve Dubai in the UAE.

Connections to and from Athens are also possible on Star Alliance partner airlines via several of SIA's other European points.

Abu Dhabi is currently served three times per week.

Athens is served two times per week, rising to three times per week between early July and late September.
