Getting to Singapore

Getting to Singapore

There are a variety of airlines that fly to Singapore, and it's a common place for a layover when travelling to countries like Australia and China.

From the UK

If you're flying from the UK, the airlines that operate direct flights tend to be Singapore Airlines and British Airways - most of these being from London, although you can sometimes find a direct flight from another location. If you don't mind making a layover (many of these layovers being in Dubai, or close) then you have a much wider range of options. KLM, Emirates, Qatar Airways and Etihad all operate.

Price, of course, depends on when you book the flight, but it is possible to find a return flight for under £ 500 (US$ 618.10), if you're willing to be flexible.

From the USA

Flights from the USA can cost as little as US$ 500 return, if you book in advance. Direct flights are available from Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, but from the majority of cities flights require a layover. Among the most common airlines to operate to Singapore are China Airlines, United, Eva Air and Philippine Airlines.

From Australia

Flights from Australia to Singapore are frequent and cheap, from as little as 270AUS. Flights are operated by Airasia, Singapore Airlines, Emirates and more.

From Asia

  • Air Asia: connecting Singapore with major cities in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Normally a good

Top tip: if you don't reserve ahead of time, and the price of a flight seems excessive, from Kuala Lumpur you can get to Singapore by land.
