Singapore Airlines suspends direct flights to Canberra as COVID-19 further hampers aviation industry

ABC reports: Singapore Airlines has announced it will no longer fly direct from Singapore to Canberra, even once coronavirus restrictions ease.

Key points:

  • Singapore Airlines' Canberra to Singapore route has been running four times a week since 2016

  • The airline scrapped its route between Canberra and Wellington two years ago

  • Singapore Airlines cite a lack of demand as the reason for the decision

The airline scrapped its Canberra to Wellington leg in 2018, just 18 months after its maiden flight.

That decision was made after lacklustre passenger numbers in the early months, and a review of the route.

Now, Singapore Airlines has indefinitely suspended all flights to the capital.

The airline will also halt flights to between Melbourne and Wellington, the replacement to the Canberra-Wellington leg.

The company cited a lack of demand as the reason behind the decision. read more HERE
