According to a release, Singapore Airlines will be increasing frequency to points in Australia, Asia and Europe during the Northern Summer operating season (31 March 2013 – 26 October 2013) to cater to growing demand in select markets.

A fourth daily service will be operated to Melbourne, up from the current three flights per day, while Adelaide flight frequency will increase to 12 per week from 10.

The increases will lift to 121 the total number of flights operated to Australia each week by Singapore Airlines and subsidiary SilkAir.
