Today, the announcement was made by Singapore Airlines, which makes it the first carrier to fly directly to Canberra from overseas.
The first flight will land in September, subject to regulatory approval, but tickets will go on sale from next week. The service will fly Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
Flights from Singapore will arrive on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 8.35am, and tickets are expected to start at $650.
