Singapore Airlines opens up exciting new routes for Aussie travellers

Great news for travellers! Singapore Airlines is expanding its flight options for Aussies.

In 2024, they plan to increase their flights from Adelaide and Sydney. This means more convenient travel connections to Europe, South Africa, and India through Singapore Changi Airport.

While still subject to regulatory approvals, Singapore Airlines announced they will add three weekly flights to Adelaide starting on October 27, 2024, bringing the total weekly flights to Adelaide to 10.

These new flights will operate on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, using a Boeing 787-10 aircraft. Additionally, there will be a fifth daily flight to Sydney starting on the same date.

The reason for these extra flights is the strong demand for travel to and from Australia.

Louis Arul, Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President for the South West Pacific, mentioned that these added services are an excellent opportunity for Australians to plan their 2024 travel and secure the best fares.

'These additional flights provide even more options for Australians heading to Europe and Asia, with great connections through Singapore Changi Airport, for business, holiday or to connect with friends and family,' they said.

This announcement comes after previous plans to increase services to Darwin, Melbourne, and Perth, demonstrating Singapore Airlines' commitment to meeting the travel needs of Australian passengers.

Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, will also enhance its capacity, offering 12 weekly return flights between Sydney and Singapore starting in December.

Sydney Airport CEO Geoff Culbert is delighted that Sydney Airport is considered Singapore Airlines' 'home away from home', and he mentioned how much Sydneysiders appreciate their exceptional service.

'Not only will this extra flight from Singapore Airlines offer Australians heading overseas more choice, but it will also help boost the number of visitors, especially from Asia and Europe,' he added.

If you're planning to visit Singapore without using it as a stopover for other countries, you'll be pleased to know that Singapore has a lot to offer Aussie tourists.

Singapore is a popular destination for Australians, and there's a good reason for it.

While Singapore is known for its wealth and luxury shopping, it's not just about high-end malls and fancy hotels (although you should definitely check those out if you can!). Singapore has a rich history, diverse ethnic neighbourhoods, family-friendly attractions, and beautiful public spaces to explore.

So, there's more to this somewhat futuristic city than meets the eye. If Singapore is on your travel bucket list, you can watch the video below to get a glimpse of what you can expect to see and experience there!

Kimberly Spykerman, the Area Director of Oceania at the Singapore Tourism Board, shared that there's a strong demand for travel to Singapore. In 2022, over 565,000 Australians visited Singapore, making them the fourth largest group of visitors.

Last year, Singapore welcomed 6.3 million visitors, a 33 per cent increase from 2019, and it's expected that tourism will return to pre-pandemic levels by 2024.

Moreover, many of Singapore's popular attractions are either affordable or free to enter. For instance, you can explore places like the UNESCO Heritage Singapore Botanic Gardens for free.

Some museums, such as the Indian Heritage Centre in Little India and the recently renovated Peranakan Museum, charge reasonable admission fees of $S8 ($A9) and $S12 ($A13), respectively.
