Qantas has unveiled plans to introduce a new international service from Darwin to Singapore, scheduled to commence on a 5 times weekly basis from December 2024.
The new Qantas flights will connect the Northern Territory to Singapore and beyond. The new service is expected to bring more than 60,000 seats annually.
Qantas has a long history of flying between Darwin and Singapore, with direct flights between both cities last operational in 2006.
The new service will provide Territorians with the option of taking a direct Qantas option to Singapore and a seamless connection to London on QF1, along with access to other European and Asian destinations through Qantas partner airlines.
The new route is expected to save these travelers approximately five hours of flying time by eliminating the need to transit through other Australian capital cities on their way to London.
Starting from December 9, 2024, the flights will initially run five days a week using the dual-class Embraer E190 aircraft, with plans to increase to daily flights in March 2025.
The establishment of the E190 base at Darwin Airport has made this new route possible, as the aircraft’s size, range, and economics open up routes that were previously impractical for larger planes.
Pre-departure, eligible travellers will receive access to the domestic Qantas Club in Darwin prior to clearing immigration and security. On return, eligible customers will have access to the Qantas International First or Business Lounge at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Fares start from $690 return and are available from today via qantas.com or through travel agents.
