Singapore Airlines has officially confirmed that it will be reducing its flights to Mumbai and Delhi in India in the months of February and March only to cope with lower than forecasted demand for seats on board its flights. The adjusted schedule is as follows:

DEL - frequencies reduced from double daily to 13 weekly flights. 1 of the daily "day light" flight frequencies have been suspended for 2 months.
With regards to CDG-Paris, the carrier has revealed that it will be reducing flights to the French capital from 10 weekly flights using a B 773ER to daily nonstop flights using an Airbus A 380 effective June 1st this year. The flight timings for the A 380 SIN-CDG-SIN operation are as follows:
