Singapore Airlines to fly into Canberra: report

By Charlotte Harper 12 January 2016 64

Singapore Airlines is reportedly set to announce plans next week to operate international flights in and out of Canberra Airport.

The Australian Financial Review has reported that Singapore Airlines will soon offer flights between Canberra and Singapore and Canberra and Wellington.

According to the report, Singapore Airlines chief executive Goh Choon Phong will announce the move during a visit to Canberra next week.

There would be four weekly Airbus A330 flights between Singapore and Canberra as well as an unspecified number of return flights between Canberra and Wellington using the same planes.

Australian Aviation magazine reported in 2013 that then ACT deputy chief minister Andrew Barr and Canberra Airport CEO Stephen Byron had travelled to Singapore to lobby for direct flights.

“The network potential of international services to and from Canberra represents one of Australia’s largest untapped markets,” the industry magazine’s report concluded.

I hope we get a low flyover from a big Airbus (after midnight).


We all know that now JC but it was touted initially that it would be an Airbus A330.
I would prefer the A330 anyday as the B777 has the worst business class seating on any long haul leg I have flown.

Actually on Singapore airlines the business class seat in the 777-200 which they plan to fly here is much the same as the seat on the A330. Only difference is the 777-200 has more leg room and an older inflight entertainment system.

That said the -200’s are on their way out with SQ.

10-4 JC. Clear to take off. Over and out.
