Broome lands direct flights from Singapore
Written on the 26 November 2017
The flights could deliver hundreds of visitors from Singapore into Broome and the Kimberley region.
Fares and flight schedules will be released soon and Australia's North West will work with SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, to develop packages for travellers.
Tourism Western Australia will promote the flights and packages through its Singapore office.
Singapore is Western Australia's third biggest international market both in terms of visitor numbers and spend. In 2016-17, 106,000 Singaporeans visited WA and spent $259 million during their stay.
Comments attributed to Tourism Minister Paul Papalia:
"Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in making the SilkAir charter flights become a reality.
"The State Government is focused on bringing more visitors to Western Australia to boost our economy through visitor spend and create more jobs. Increasing aviation access into the State will help us achieve that goal.
"While the current deal with SilkAir is for four return trial flights, we are hopeful that the demand for the service will be high and lead the way for further services in the future.
"Tourism is vital for the State's economy generating more than $10 billion a year through visitor spend and supporting 109,000 jobs. That's why it is at the centre of the State Government's plan to create jobs and further grow the economy."
