Singapore link a capital idea - Labour

Wellington Airport should be applauded for securing a new international link, Labour says.   

“Attracting Singapore Airlines to the city is a feather in their cap. Plans for a four-day a week service between the Capital and Singapore via Canberra is a message to naysayers about the future of our airport,” Rongotai MP Annette King says. 

Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson said new services which opened opportunities for business in the city were vital for Wellington’s economic future: “The more activity we can grow, the more the city will thrive.

“We know how hard the airport company is working to secure opportunities in Wellington. This latest announcement is another step forward,” he said.
