Singapore Airlines will operate the Singapore-Davao-Cebu triangular route beginning April 1, 2022, to be flown aboard the Boeing 737-800 aircraft. The airline will fly this route once daily.

Operating as SQ-906, the first leg of the route will depart from Singapore at 12:35 PM (UTC+8) and will arrive in Davao at 4:10 PM (UTC+8). 

After a 50-minute turnaround time, the flight will depart from Davao at 5:00 PM (UTC+8) and arrive in Cebu at 6:00 PM (UTC+8). 

The last leg of the flight will depart from Cebu at 6:50 PM (UTC+8) and will arrive back in Singapore at 10:35 PM (UTC+8).

Since flights to Cebu and Davao will be under VTL, passengers can skip the seven-day quarantine when entering Singapore if they meet the VTL requirements.

SilkAir, a regional subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, previously flew the same triangular route pre-pandemic. However, international restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic halted the flights temporarily.

With SilkAir already merged with Singapore Airlines, the mainline will takeover the Singapore-Davao-Cebu route moving forward. Moreover, low-cost subsidiary Scoot will continue to serve flights to Cebu and Davao to complement the mainline service.
