The sounds of Australia echoed around Singapore as British Airways hosted a series of musical performances to celebrate the launch of its special fares from Singapore to Sydney.
With British Airways cabin crew at his side, local didgeridoo performer Reggie Perera – who was trained by elders in the northern territory of Australia – performed a selection of traditional didgeridoo songs in front of large crowds at the Merlion Park and One Fullerton.

“We have a long and proud tradition of flying between Singapore and Australia. Not only is Sydney a dynamic and exciting city in itself, but it is also a gateway to the country’s many majestic sights and sounds, experiences that can only be found in Australia; so it is little wonder why Sydney is becoming an increasingly popular destination for Singaporean holidaymakers,” said Robert Williams, British Airways regional general manager, South East Asia. “With our fantastic promotional fares, now is a great time to book a trip down under with the guarantee of travelling in style and comfort.”
British Airways operates a daily service between Singapore Changi and Sydney Kingsford Smith. The winter flight schedule enables British Airways passengers to escape to Sydney for a long weekend break. Flights depart Changi in the evening, arriving in Sydney in the morning giving passengers a full day to explore. Return flights depart Sydney in the late afternoon.
