Christchurch Airport and Singapore Airlines have decided to add 18 more flights to Christchurch over summer season. Christchurch Airport CEO Jim Boult says this early commitment from such a prestigious global airline is a vote of confidence in Christchurch and the South Island’s tourism offering for visitors globally.
This follows an extra 10 Singapore Airlines flights have been added further to this summer’s period, all to cater for the strong demand for travel to the South Island over the busy summer holidays.
Singapore Airlines already serves Christchurch with daily services, which provide tourists direct access to the gateway to the South Island. The improved services over the next two summer seasons will give travellers to the South Island increased flight options, as well as providing more cargo capacity and frequency for exporters. The increase is proof to the popularity of the route and the company’s commitment to providing greater flexibility, convenience and choice when traveling between Christchurch and Singapore and beyond on Singapore Airlines global network of 99 destinations in 36 countries.
Mr. Boult said, “Additional air services also create opportunities for South Island business, on the back of the city’s rebuild and upcoming new facilities, so this announcement is undoubtedly a win for everyone.”
