The Australian Hotels Association (WA) has celebrated the announcement today from the WA Government of the launch of a new non-stop seasonal service between Singapore and Broome, a development poised to significantly benefit the hotel and hospitality industry in Australia’s North West. 

Set to commence operations twice weekly from June to October aboard Jetstar Asia’s Airbus A320 aircraft, this seasonal service is poised to inject renewed vitality into the region, and promises to enhance accessibility and drive tourism growth. 

AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods said this service marks the revival of international air travel into regional Western Australia post-COVID but also represents one of Jetstar’s most cost-effective routes into Australia, bringing visitors with more money to spend in the local economy. 

“The fruition of this service is a testament to the collaborative efforts between the WA Government’s $75 million Aviation Recovery Fund and Broome International Airport, demonstrating the pivotal role of public-private partnerships in revitalising the aviation sector.” 

“Singapore holds a special significance as one of Western Australia’s closest international neighbours and the state’s second-largest international visitor market, the importance of fostering seamless air connectivity cannot be overstated.” 

“Moreover, Broome’s rich Asian heritage and vibrant hospitality scene position it as a priority destination for South East Asian travellers, offering a unique cultural experience that resonates with visitors.” 

“Jetstar Asia’s extensive network and strategic partnerships with carriers across Asia not only facilitate increased access for visitors from the region but also serve as an alternative gateway for travellers from around the world, further amplifying Western Australia’s appeal on the global tourism stage.” 

“The introduction of this international aviation route between Singapore and Broome signals a new era of opportunity for the hotel and hospitality industry, driving economic growth, and fostering cultural exchange. We eagerly anticipate the positive impact it will have on our industry and the broader community,” said Mr Woods.
