The world's most awarded airline has a heavyweight reputation for providing the finest flying experience in the sky. Not only does it provide a signature level of luxury, a journey with Singapore Airlines will inject sophistication into your travels from the word go. Here we reveal five remarkable reasons why Singapore Airlines is the ultimate airline of choice when flying to New South Wales.

Award-winning service

The premium airline has been recognised time and time again for its superior service and customers can expect an utterly stress-free and enjoyable experience. Highly trained staff — on the ground and in the air — will always go the extra mile, from offering a choice of three main courses in Economy, to handing out hot towels throughout the flight in all cabins. Its Book the Cook service is an exceptional option for Premium passengers who can pre-book dishes from an extensive menu. Plus, with an Australian consultant chef Matt Moran and wine consultant Michael Hill Smith, you can even sample some destination inspired delights before you arrive.


Flying from the UK is easy with Singapore Airlines. The carrier has four daily flights from Heathrow and five weekly flights from Manchester to Singapore Changi Airport, while non-stop connections take passengers onwards to nine Australian cities — Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Adelaide, Cairns, Canberra and Gold Coast — including five daily flights to Sydney. It's this vast network — in conjunction with its sister carriers — that makes it Australia's most frequent visitor in terms of weekly flights to the country.

State-of-the-art equipment

Passengers can be wholeheartedly confident they'll be granted the finest flying experience: this is an airline at the forefront of aviation innovations, having been the launch carrier for the A380 in 2007, and in 2017 upgraded to include the new exquisite private suites and exceptionally comfortable Business class, Premium Economy and Economy seating. It's also the first airline to fly the state-of-the-art A350 from Manchester, offering a quieter, more environmentally friendly flight with cabin features and lighting designed to reduce jetlag. Regardless of the cabin, passengers can expect the very best in the airline's culinary offering, entertainment, comfort and style aboard its superior modern fleet.


The global reach of Singapore Airlines is further strengthened by some key affiliates. These include Flybe, National Express Coaches and Great Western Railway to bolster its UK regional departures, while the partnership with Virgin Australia gives passengers the freedom to explore all corners of Australia and New Zealand with ease and comfort.

Changi Airport

A seamless transfer comes as standard at this award-winning hub, and it's not hard to see why with a plethora of outstanding services and experiences. As well as extensive shopping and free wi-fi, the airport is also home to a butterfly garden, a cinema and a swimming pool. All Singapore Airlines' passengers receive a $20 transit voucher (£11) to be redeemed at Changi while discounted Singapore Stopover holiday packages are available and include unlimited trips on the Singapore hop on hop off bus. Furthermore, those with more than a 5.5-hour layover can enjoy free city tours with unlimited trips on the Singapore hop on hop off bus.
