Perth Airport welcomes opening of new Singapore Airlines lounge

Share

Singapore Airlines has opened a new SilverKris Lounge at Perth Airport for its business class and qualifying frequent travellers.

The airline will also be returning to its pre-COVID frequency of four daily services at Perth Airport next month.

The airline currently operates twenty-five flights per week on the Perth-Singapore route which will increase to a fourth daily service from 31 March 2024 with additional SQ213 and SQ226 services.

Perth Airport’s chief commercial and aviation officer, Kate Holsgrove, noted that over the past 57 years, the Australian gateway and Singapore Airlines have enjoyed a strong partnership that continues to grow today.

“The opening of a new SilverKris Lounge in Perth and the return of a fourth daily service is another significant milestone for Singapore Airlines and highlights the commitment the airline has to Perth and the Western Australian market,” said Holsgrove.

“Singapore Airlines is Perth Airport’s number one international airline in terms of seat capacity delivering more than 930,000 seats per year to the Perth market. It has been instrumental in growing WA’s business, education, trade, and tourism links with Singapore.

“Singapore has become Western Australia’s second largest international visitor market, injecting $260 million into the WA economy in visitor expenditure alone last year.”

The airline’s fourth daily flight will use an Airbus A350-900 which offers 303 seats (40 business and 263 Economy) bringing 220,584 more seats to the Perth market annually.
