Singapore Airlines will operate seasonal services to Sapporo during December 2014 and January 2015 to meet expected demand during the peak winter travel season.
A total of 14 flights will be operated to the capital of Hokkaido, a vast island accounting for about a fifth of Japan's total area. A renowned skiing and snow sports destination, Hokkaido is also home to many national parks and natural landscapes, high-quality agriculture and seafood, hot springs, as well as the Sapporo White Illumination - a festival where the city, blanketed in snow will be lit with decorative lights.
