Singapore Airlines Destinations on a Map

Singapore Airlines is Singapore's flag carrier, and possibly the most luxurious airline in the world. It also currently holds the record for the longest non-stop commercial flight. Can you guess all the places this airline flies to?

If you're looking for a challenge, try guessing the individual airports; IATA and ICAO codes are also both accepted (when not interfering with the full name of the city or airport)!
As you guess, the route lines will disappear. Remember to click to zoom in!

Might we be seeing some of these for more localised airlines (like Alaska, Frontier, or one of the European airlines I haven't heard of)? I think that might be an interesting and more difficult addition to this series.

Sure, I do take suggestions! The thing is, what I think makes my quizzes a little "special" compared to others is the route lines, which I'm not sure would work with many of the non-flag carrying airlines in Europe, like say WizzAir or Ryanair, since they follow the point-to-point model instead of the hub-and-spoke one. If you are looking for some very unique airlines, TheRealGrantma made some quizzes about Air Greenland and Air Koryo.

I'll look into the two carriers you mentioned!

Nominated. How do you draw the lines so precisely?

Short answer: I use Python, the Cartopy package to be exact.

Long answer: I create a map in Cartopy with the equirectangular projection (which is the closest to the default JetPunk map projection) and add the lines with a geodetic transformation so that they connect any two points using the shortest path on a globe, not on a flat map. Cartopy exports this to an SVG file, which I then clean up (remove colours, simplify the lines' paths so that they are curves, and so on). In the meantime I use JetPunk's Place Dots on a Map tool to make an SVG with the airports' coordinates. I then combine the two SVGs (which is actually not that easy, since the JetPunk map projection is not exactly equirectangular). For this map in particular, I also had to cut the JetPunk-made SVG to have it centered on Singapore.

Hope that answers your question! :)

Cartopy is quite a powerful tool, although it's far from perfect or user friendly. I also used it for my Countries in a Spinning Globe quiz, where I asked if anyone wanted a tutorial-style blog on how I made that quiz using Cartopy, but since nobody showed interest I never made it

Interesting! I've also used Python for some of my quizzes like this one (I'm currently learning the language). Thanks for the info!
