SINGAPORE AIRLINES SLING MORE FLIGHTS TO PERTH
Singapore Airlines is currently running three flights a day on the Perth-Singapore route and had announced a seasonal service between November and March four times a week – this SQ 213 and SQ 226 service will then turn into a daily service on the 31 March 2024.
Perth Airport Acting CEO Kate Holsgrove said the move was another significant step forward in WA’s international aviation recovery – with one of our biggest international airline partners returning to its pre-Covid frequency.
“The airline’s fourth daily flight will use an Airbus A350-900 which offers 303 seats (40 business and 263 Economy) bringing 220,584 more seats to the Perth market annually.
“We’ve got strong business, education, trade and tourism links with Singapore and Singapore Airlines has a long and proud record of linking the world with Western Australia – a relationship which has delivered enormous benefits for Western Australia for more than 55 years.
“Singapore remains Western Australia’s second biggest international visitor market, injecting $214 million into the WA economy in visitor expenditure for the year ending in March.
“The introduction of its fourth daily service is another significant milestone for Singapore Airlines and highlights the commitment the airline has to the Perth and Western Australian market.”
“Singapore is also a favourite tourism and business destination for Western Australian and also an important hub for travellers looking to head on to other international destinations.
SQ213 will depart Changi Airport at 07:40, arriving the same day at 12:55. The return flight SQ226 from Perth to Singapore, will depart at 14:10, arriving back into Changi Airport at 19:30.
