Singapore Airlines Delays Singapore-Jakarta-Sydney Launch

Singapore Airlines has delayed the launch of flights linking Singapore, Jakarta and Sydney.

Singapore Airlines had originally planned to launch new three-times-weekly Singapore-Jakarta-Sydney flights on 23 November 2016.

The Indonesian civil aviation authorities had issued SIA written approval, and SIA had also secured the necessary airport slots. However, Singapore Airlines says that it has been informed by the Indonesian civil aviation authorities that they are now unable to approve the flights due to runway maintenance works at Jakartas Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, which also affect other airlines.

The airline said it will progressively contact customers with bookings on this route and help put them on other flights.
