PER-FECT Singapore Airlines adds fifth daily service to Perth
Singapore Airlines will add a fifth daily service between Perth and Singapore from 1 June 2020, adding more than 220,000 seats (inbound and outbound) to the Perth – Singapore market.
Perth Airport Chief Executive Officer Kevin Brown said 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 50 years.
“Singapore is Western Australia’s second biggest international visitor market, injecting $269 million into the WA economy in visitor expenditure alone last year,” Mr Brown said.
“The introduction of its fifth daily service is another significant milestone for Singapore Airlines and highlights the commitment the airline has to the Perth and Western Australian market.”
“This builds on the aircraft upgrades that the airline made to its existing four daily services last year.
“From 1 June, the airline will operate three services on an Airbus A350-900 and two services on a Boeing B787-10 Dreamliner daily, providing a phenomenal 1.15 million seats on the Perth – Singapore route.
“This is a great win for Western Australia as a tourism destination and we look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with Singapore Airlines to grow aviation travel to and from Perth,” Mr Brown said.
“The Singapore Airlines Group also flies to more than 130 destinations across the globe via its hub in Singapore., giving Western Australians a number of great and seamless travel choices,” Mr Brown said.
“Perth Airport continues to work with our airline partners and the State government to increase services which encourage growth in visitor numbers to Perth and Western Australia.
“It’s important that we continue to work together with tourism, business, educational institutions and government to ensure we maximise these opportunities.
“If you grow the number of visitors to WA, the flow-on benefits for tourism operators, hotels, hospitality, retail outlets and our universities could be enormous,” he said.
