Singapore Airlines, Frankfurt Airport Celebrate 50 Years of Air Connectivity

Singapore Airlines and Frankfurt Airport are celebrating 50 years of seamless air connectivity. 

On Aug. 3, 1972, the former’s maiden flight departed from the city-state and touched down at Frankfurt's Rhine-Main Airport as Malaysia-Singapore Airlines using the Boeing 707-327 aircraft.

Singapore Airlines’ first flight to Frankfurt is one of the reasons that strengthened the connections between the city-state and Germany in terms of social relations, economic factors, and tourism, according to a report from the online aviation news site Simple Flying today.

Considering massive air passenger traffic as well as the vital connections between the two airlines, Frankfurt has emerged as one of the most important hubs located in continental Europe for Singapore Airlines. After 50 years of service, Singapore Airlines has improved its flight experience with Frankfurt Airport including the number of stopovers, direct flights, weekly flight frequencies, and daily schedules.

At present, Singapore Airlines has two daily flights from Frankfurt, namely the A380 with passengers flying to New York as SQ25, while its second direct flight uses the Airbus A350-900 as SQ326.
