ON May 30, 2015, SilkAir will start direct flights between Singapore and Cairns in Australia, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the largest reef in the world.


Subject to regulatory approvals, Cairns will be the airline's second Australian destination after Darwin, which was launched in March 2012.


The regional wing of Singapore Airlines (SIA) plans to deploy its latest Boeing 737-800 aircraft for the Cairns service three times weekly on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, through circular routings with Darwin.
