- SilkAir to run four return trial flights from Singapore to Broome next June
- Deal with local business, Broome International Airport and Australia's North West
- Supported by State Government through Tourism Western Australia
Visitors will be able to fly directly between Singapore and Broome next year thanks to a deal between Broome businesses, Broome International Airport, Australia's North West regional tourism organisation and SilkAir.
The flights could deliver hundreds of visitors from Singapore into Broome and the Kimberley region.
Fares and flight schedules will be released soon and Australia's North West will work with SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, to develop packages for travellers.
Tourism Western Australia will promote the flights and packages through its Singapore office.
Singapore is Western Australia's third biggest international market both in terms of visitor numbers and spend. In 2016-17, 106,000 Singaporeans visited WA and spent $259 million during their stay.
