Congratulations to Canberra Airport
Singapore Airlines has announced it would be the first international airline to operate regularly scheduled international flights from Australia’s capital, Canberra. The new ‘Capital Express’ route will provide the nation’s capital with two direct international destination options with flight SQ292/291 operating Canberra-Singapore and Canberra-Wellington. For the first time in the two countries’ histories, Australia and New Zealand’s capital cities will be serviced by non-stop flights four times a week beginning in September 2016 – subject to regulatory approval.
This exciting development, coupled with the recently upgraded Main Road 92 means that the businesses of the Shoalhaven now have another option to access world markets. Just one more reason as to why the Shoalhaven is the Enterprising Alternative.
