Direct Flights Announced Between Singapore and Broome

Visitors will be able to fly directly between Singapore and Broome next year thanks to a deal between Broome businesses, Broome International Airport, Australia’s North West regional tourism organisation and SilkAir.
“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.” Western Australian Tourism Minister Paul Papalia commented.
Minister Papalia explained that 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.
“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.” Minister Papalia commented “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.”
