Singapore Airlines to link Canberra and Wellington with new route

Singapore Airlines is to introduce services to both Canberra and Wellington with the launch of a new ‘Capital Express’ route.

The new flights from Singapore will connect the capitals of both Australia and New Zealand.

Subject to regulatory approvals, flights will be operated four times per week from September 20th on a Singapore-Canberra-Wellington routing. Return flights will be on a Wellington-Canberra-Singapore routing.

Flights will be operated with 266-seat retrofitted Boeing 777-200s fitted with 38 Business Class seats and 228 Economy Class seats. Singapore Airlines will be the first airline with flights between Canberra and Wellington. It will also be the first airline to operate regularly scheduled international services to and from Canberra.

“This new service linking Singapore, Canberra and Wellington reflects the close ties between the three countries,” said Singapore Airlines chief execurive, Goh Choon Phong. “We are excited about the prospects for our new ‘Capital Express’ route, which we are confident will appeal to leisure, government and corporate travellers.

“We are especially pleased to be bringing more convenient travel options to customers with Canberra’s first regularly scheduled international flights and the first non-stop links between the capitals of Australia and New Zealand.”

Flights will be available for booking on a progressive basis through the Singapore Airlines website, call centres and travel agents in the coming weeks. The new Canberra services will add to Singapore Airlines’ already extensive Australia network, which currently includes flights between Singapore and Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

Subsidiary SilkAir also serves Cairns and Darwin, while a wide-ranging partnership with Virgin Australia extends Singapore Airlines’ Australia network to another 40 codeshare destinations. Singapore Airlines’ new Wellington services will complement existing services between Singapore and both Auckland and Christchurch.

Singapore Airlines also has an extensive partnership with Air New Zealand.
