Demand for greater connectivity has encouraged Singapore Airlines to launch a new route to Sydney via Jakarta. The new service will fulfill the dual purpose of boosting the Singapore-Jakarta flight frequency as well as increasing the airline’s operations to both Indonesia and Australia. Please note: The start date for this service has been delayed due to on-going runway maintenance in Jakarta.
Flights on this new route are expected to take off three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays beginning 23rd November 2016, subject to regulatory approvals. The service will utilise aircraft from Singapore Airlines’ Boeing 777-212(ER) fleet.
