Singapore Airlines Is Launching Flights Between Moscow & Stockholm | One Mile at

Typical intra-Europe business class
The background on this flight is a fun one as well:

  • Singapore Airlines used to operate a flight from Singapore to Moscow to Houston
  • Singapore Airlines used to operate a flight from Singapore to Munich to Manchester
  • They’ve sort of reversed these routes a bit, as Singapore now operates their Singapore to Houston flight via Manchester[7], and operates their European fifth freedom route via Moscow

This new Moscow to Stockholm route doesn’t yet seem to have award availability, but once it does, the one way cost should be[8] just 6,375 KrisFlyer miles in economy, or 12,750 KrisFlyer miles in premium economy, or 19,125 miles in business class, which is a solid deal. I suspect award availability will be excellent, as is generally the case on these fifth freedom routes.

I love cool fifth freedom routes like this, especially on world class airlines like Singapore, and especially when they’re a good use of miles. While this isn’t an especially long flight, Singapore’s A350 business class sure is a comfortable way to fly within Europe. I had a great trip to Russia over the summer[9], and next time would certainly consider taking this Singapore flight from Stockholm to Moscow to get there (though I also recently flew Aeroflot[10], and they greatly exceeded my expectations).

What do you make of Singapore’s new flight between Moscow and Stockholm?
