“In particular, the service will bring additional visitors from Singapore, the United Kingdom, China and India.”
Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President South West Pacific Mr Tiow Kor Tan said the addition of the fourth flight was due to the strength of the Brisbane market over the past 12 months.
“Across the South West Pacific region we have experienced good loads and Brisbane has certainly been one of the stronger performers,” Mr Tan said.
“The decision to install a scheduled fourth flight is a reflection of our commitment to Queensland and will ensure we are providing more options for our passengers.”
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) CEO and Managing Director Julieanne Alroe welcomed the news saying Singapore Airlines is an important hub carrier for Brisbane Airport.
“Each year Singapore Airlines carries more than half a million passengers to and from Brisbane, reinforcing its presence as a major contributor to Queensland tourism, especially considering its network breadth of 52 destinations world-wide,” Ms Alroe said.
“I congratulate Singapore Airlines on its significant contribution and commitment to Queensland over the years. It’s one of Brisbane Airport’s longest serving airlines, having commenced flying to Brisbane in 1984 and is currently Brisbane Airport’s fourth largest international carrier.”
