Council moves to support up to $96,720 AUD to underwrite the Singapore to Broome travel packages

A proposal to introduce flights between Broome and Singapore this year is progressing with a consortium looking to appoint an airline to run the services.

The intent is to trial three to four return flights this year as a pilot to determine passenger demand and viability of regular services between the two locations into the future.

Meetings have been held with Singapore Airlines subsidiary Silk Air and travel agents in the Asian city to sell five-day/four night packages into Broome.

It was anticipated there would be two groups of travellers from Singapore each with about 160 passengers with the potential for a fourth flight if seats sold well.

A special meeting of Shire of Broome councillors on Tuesday JAN24 was due to consider underwriting two of the legs not included within the packages offered in Singapore.

The maximum cost to the council would be under $100,000 and subject to the amount of tickets sold.
