In addition to the new connections, SQ288 will also provide customers travelling from Sydney additional options for connecting to Chiang Mai and Kunming, as well as a third-daily seamless connection to London.
For the Canberra market, 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 full flat bed.
Singapore Airlines regional vice president South West Pacific, Philip Goh, said the introduction of SQ288 reinforced Singapore Airlines’ commitment to the Canberra and Sydney markets.
