Qantas restarts Perth–Singapore service

29 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang
Qantas has restarted its Perth–Singapore service, a year after it suspended it following a reported loss of A$200 million (US$152.9 million) in 2014. The re-launch of the route also coincides with several developments that Qantas is planning for Perth, including a new domestic business lounge (opening late August), seasonal direct services between Perth and Auckland from October 2015 to April 2016, and the ongoing introduction of refurbished A330 aircraft. “We’re seeing many of our customers choosing to make the most of the early evening arrival into Singapore and the excellent connections if offers to the rest of Asia with our airline partners, with Koh Samui, Phuket and Tokyo being some of the most popular choices,” said Qantas International chief executive Gareth Evans. “Many of our codeshare partners have also been attracted to our Perth-Singapore schedule, adding their code to the Qantas flights, with nine carriers now marketing the services to their customers.” Flight QF71 will depart Perth every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 1200 and arrive in Singapore at 1720. The return service, QF72, will take off from Singapore at 1825 and arrive back in Perth at 2340. Flights will be operated with the Flying Kangaroo’s B737 aircraft, which will offer a two-class configuration, with 12 seats in business and 156 in economy. Passengers at the nose end can enjoy in-flight dining dishes by Neil Perry, as well as amenity kits from Kate Spade and Jack Spade. For more information, visit Clement Huang
