Singapore Airlines ramps up flights

Tuesday, November 14, 2023


More tourists will be getting ready for take-off to South Australia.

Singapore Airlines is ramping up its flights from Adelaide to 10 per week, starting October next year.

The increase in the number of flights will provide a significant boost for South Australian tourism and the broader economy.

The announcement comes hot on the heels of the airline’s recent introduction of the B787-10 Dreamliners to the Adelaide route. This will increase capacity by 34 seats per flight. It is an 11% boost.

The transition from daily flights to a robust schedule of 10 flights per week will see an additional 105,000 seats annually.

Adelaide Airport Managing Director Brenton Cox says that Singapore Airlines have long been a wonderful supporter of the Adelaide market. They have again shown their faith in their projected growth by adding three additional services per week.

They are confident of further international growth out of Adelaide with positive discussions currently underway with a number of international airlines.

Singapore Airlines has also scheduled an additional 4 flights per week to Adelaide between December 2023 and January 2024.

The announcement of the additional flights comes after the recent positive news for Adelaide Airport.

Several international and domestic carriers either launch new services or increase their existing ones in South Australia.

Currently, eight international airlines are conducting 45 weekly flights to Adelaide.

There wil be more incoming international flights in the next few months that will bring more than 11,000 passengers into South Australia every week.

The addition of these new international routes may unlock fresh business and trade opportunities for the state.

Minister for Tourism Zoe Bettison says increased flight capacity is a great result for tourism and investment in SA.

The announcement is another great sign of confidence from Singapore Airlines in the Adelaide market. It shows airlines are keen to fly to Adelaide as new capacity allows.

As of November 10th, Batik Air Indonesia began their Indonesian services, building upon their Malaysian operations.

The airline will introduce two new weekly services from Denpasar to Adelaide from November, with plans to increase this to four services per week in December.

This marks Batik Air’s status as South Australia’s first international carrier serving multiple direct destinations.

Meanwhile, VietJet is preparing to operate five flights per week starting November 21st, a move poised to open up new avenues for South Australia in terms of tourism and trade opportunities across key markets in Asia.

On the domestic front, the aviation industry is inching closer to pre-COVID levels.

Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia, and Rex Airlines collectively operate an impressive total of 515 domestic flights to Adelaide each week equating to 82,690 seats.

REX also recently started their Adelaide-Brisbane services, enhancing domestic connectivity for travellers.

Singapore Airlines tickets will be available for sale progressively through their various distribution channels. Travellers can easily access the additional flight options.
