Non stop ‘Capital Express’ flights link Singapore with Canberra and Wellington.
Singapore Airlines has just confirmed the launch of non-stop flights between Singapore and Canberra, with the new route also continuing on to the New Zealand capital, Wellington.
To commence operation effective 20 September 2016, the route will initially operate four times per week using a Boeing 777 aircraft.
Virgin Australia will codeshare on the Canberra-Singapore leg, with Singapore Airlines ceo Mr Goh Choon Phong saying he was confident the service would appeal to leisure, government and corporate travellers.
Eligible members of Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer loyalty program will have access to Canberra Airport’s Virgin Australia domestic lounge before departure.
