Following the resounding success of last year’s direct flight trial between Singapore and Broome, SilkAir – the regional wing of Singapore Airlines – will return with Phase 2 of the trial flights to the beguiling beach resort town starting Thursday, 13 June 2019.
The flights have resulted from a partnership involving the Broome International Airport, Australia’s Northwest Tourism, The Shire of Broome and Tourism Western Australia (WA), and have been strategically timed to coincide with several specific events – including school holidays in Singapore, two race meets at the Broome Turf Club (15 & 22 June), and one of Broome’s many popular natural wonders, the Staircase to the Moon (18, 19 and 20 June).
These dates will provide a range of options available to international visitors to the North West of Australia (including Broome & The Kimberley region) who can choose to stay for three, four, or up to 11 nights.
The flight route will save more than six and a half hours of travel time; from over 10.5 hours if travellers transit through Perth Airport to around four hours. The first of the SilkAir flights will depart Singapore’s Changi Airport at 11.00 a.m., and the flight will depart Broome to return to Singapore later the same day at 4.15 p.m. The four return flights will operate on four dates: 13, 17, 20, and 24 June, and will run at the same times each day.
To meet this growing demand, Australia’s North West and Tourism Western Australia have developed several travel packages with local travel agencies, Chan Brothers Travel, Dynasty Travel, and Jetabout Holidays, that would appeal to a wide travel audience from families with young children to couples and friends.
Return airfares starting from S$580 per person are now available through all travel agents including online travel agents. For more information: https://www.australiasnorthwest.com/singapore
