Singapore Airlines offers first overnight flight from Sydney to Singapore

Posted: 3 May 2018 12:31 pm

Go to sleep in Australia and wake up in Singapore with fifth daily flight option from Sydney.

Singapore Airlines has just started operations of its new Sydney-Canberra-Singapore Boeing 777-300ER service, now running five daily flights from Sydney.

Flight SQ288 departs from Sydney at 9:20pm, making it also the airline's first overnight service from Sydney, arriving into Singapore at 5:15am.

The return leg bypasses Canberra and runs straight from Singapore to Sydney, departing at 10:30am to land in Sydney at 8:10pm.

Travellers can book the entire Sydney-Canberra-Singapore flight or just the Canberra-Singapore leg but Singapore Airlines isn't permitted to sell the Sydney-Canberra leg as part of a domestic option on its own.

Passengers travelling from Singapore to Canberra can book a stopover in Sydney, however, as part of their international journey and those headed from Sydney to Singapore can break their journey up in Canberra.

The early morning arrival will provide 19 new connections from Sydney to destinations on both the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir networks that would have previously seen customers endure an overnight stay.

New connections include destinations in Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, China and Taiwan as well as London.

For those travelling from Canberra, the start of SQ288 will deliver another first to the Australian capital with the debut of first class and premium economy Class. It will also see customers in business class provided with a fully flat bed.
