SAA ends CPT – LHR service, SIA quickly grabs the slot for a 4th daily SIN – LHR

 South African Airways just two days ago revealed that it would be cancelling its long serving Cape Town – London Heathrow service effective 14th August. And with the cancellation, it would be leaving a slot pair with some very lucrative timings at Heathrow.

SA221 LHR CPT 2100 1005+1 D 332

 And now it appears that the fellow Star Alliance member Singapore Airlines has been quick to grab the slots to be used for a fourth daily flight to Heathrow from its Singapore hub. SIA’s new flight will be launched from 9th September onwards and will use a mix of Boeing 777-300ER and A380 aircraft for the operation.

SQ305 LHR SIN 2000 1550+1 D

If the slot which SIA uses is indeed that left vacant from SAA’s cancellation – it is safe to assume that the two airlines, being alliance partners, probably had already come to terms regarding the lucrative slot pair prior to their respective announcements. How lucrative could this opportunity have been for SIA, is clear from the fact that it already has SQ322 departing SIN just 15 minutes earlier than SQ306, with the largest aircraft in its fleet – the Airbus A380.
