FLIGHT REVIEW: Qantas A330-300 Business Class, Singapore – Sydney (SIN-SYD)

In November 2022, Qantas resumed flights between Singapore and Australia, after a 20-month hiatus since Australia closed its borders in March 2020. With Australia allowing Singapore citizens into the country since November last year as a pilot before reopening the borders, I thought I’d take a trip Down Under in February this year to see a couple of friends that I have not met for years. I had a good experience with Qantas several years ago, and was excited to see if the experience remained the same.

Qantas sets sight to resume Singapore services from mid-December

Qantas is ready to resume overseas flights in mid-December 2021 based on the pace of Australian’s vaccination rollout, but…. will it actually happen? In Qantas’ full year results announcement today, the Australian airline also outlined its plans for international services when Australia gradually reopen borders, which would be triggered when the Australian national vaccination rate surpasses its designated 80% threshold.

These destinations include US, UK and Singapore, among others.
