"With strong demand for airfreight into and out of Ireland, Singapore Airlines Cargo is delighted to demonstrate its commitment to this important market by increasing Singapore - Dublin - Singapore frequencies up to three a week," said Mr Alvin Tay, General Manager UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.

It'd be nice to think STN, but I know some other Singapore Cargo flights go into LHR so I'd guess it'll remain there.

Thanks. I know some Asian airlines keep all flights at LHR while others send cargo flights to STN. Didnt know which one SQ do

It's LHR,
I noticed a SQC arriving from LHR the other day and then planned out to Dubai, thought it was just a one off but obviously not :D

Passed through Dublin this afternoon at 1400 and the SQC 744 was sitting parked up beside the DHL A300.
