Our non-stop service to Wuxi offers greater connectivity and convenience to customers as Singapores business and bilateral ties with these two cities continue to grow.

Wuxi and Suzhou are important cities in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) Economic Zone a pillar of Chinas economic growth. Both cities have a combined population of about 17 million and total GDP of more than RMB 2 trillion. The cities promising growth prospects have led to Singapores investment presence there. The China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park, established in 1994 as the first government to government bilateral project between China and Singapore, has long been a sign of strong ties between the two countries. It has since grown to be a vibrant township that encompasses high tech, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, eco-friendly living and a higher education cluster.

As a tourist destination, Wuxi is home to Taihu Lake - Chinas third largest freshwater lake which boasts scenic views.
