The resumption of Emirates’ Singapore-Melbourne route will help serve the pent-up demand for air travel between the two cities and beyond across the airline’s global network, providing even more choice and flexibility for travellers with the capacity to transport up to 5,000 passengers a week between the two points.

Emirates country manager for Singapore & Brunei, Rashid Al Ardha said: “The return of our direct service between Singapore and Melbourne further establishes our commitment to supporting the local travel and tourism recovery in both markets. With travel restrictions easing globally, we are progressively restoring our operations to pre-pandemic levels, as we expect customer demand to remain strong in 2023.”

Emirates has been serving Singapore since 1990. Aside from the newly-restored Melbourne service, the airline continues to connect travellers to 130 cities across the globe through Dubai three times a day. Tickets can be issued on emirates.com, the Emirates App, or via both online and offline travel agents.

Emirates’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration offers travellers eight private suites in first class, 42 lie-flat seats in business class and 304 spacious seats in economy class.
