DARWIN, Australia, 26 Maret / Medianet International-AsiaNet/ —

Darwin Convention Centre tengah menanti kehadiran layanan reguler SilkAir
di Bandara Internasional Darwin dan General Manager Pusat ini, Malu Barrios
akan menyambut penerbangan perdana maskapai tersebut pada tanggal 26 Maret.

menjadi kota kedua dengan pertumbuhan paling pesat di negara tersebut selama 5

Setelah sebelumnya dilayani oleh maskapai internasional besar, Darwin
khususnya telah mengandalkan layanan DWN-SNG Jetstar dalam tiga tahun terakhir.
SilkAir saat ini akan menyediakan kelas bisnis pada empat penerbangan kembali
yang dijadwalkan setiap minggunya antara Darwin dan Singapura, pusat jaringan
yang luas di Asia Tenggara.

Ibu Barrios mengungkapkan bahwa SilkAir membawa layanan baru yang penting
untuk perjalanan bisnis ke Darwin dan Convention Centre.

“Baik Darwin maupun Convention Centre akan diuntungkan dari peningkatan
akses SilkAir yang akan tersedia, ujar Ibu Barrios. Perekonomian yang kuat di
kota kami ini, daya tarik kota tujuan yang berbeda, dan lokasi yang strategis
berkontribusi terhadap vitalitas ekonomi dari wilayah tersebut, menarik minat
investasi besar internasional dan nasional. Convention Centre telah menunjukkan
kehandalan layanan berkelas dunia dalam empat tahun pertama pengoperasiannya.
Layanan baru ini juga akan membuat Darwin lebih menarik bagi asosiasi
internasional yang mempertimbangkan dalam menggelar acara mereka di kota
tersebut.”

SilkAir adalah anak perusahaan Singapore Airlines yang amat dihargai dan
memiliki kesepakatan pembagian kode dengan dengan Virgin Australia. Maskapai
ini menerbangkan armada Airbus A319-100 yang tengah diperbaharui menjadi
A320-200. Maskapai ini telah memenangkan penghargaan sebagai Maskapai
Penerbangan Regional Terbaik secara berturut-turut: di Asia Tenggara pada tahun
2009 dan 2010 dalam Penghargaan Maskapai Penerbangan Dunia dan pada bulan
Oktober dianugerahi Regional Airline of The Year oleh Pusat Penerbangan (CAPA).

Convention Centre Welcomes New Airline Services to Darwin

DARWIN, Australia, Mar. 26 / Medianet International-AsiaNet/ —

The Darwin Convention Centre is eagerly awaiting the arrival of SilkAir’s regular services to Darwin International Airport and Centre General Manager, Malu Barrios will be on hand to welcome the airline’s inaugural flight on March 26th.

Darwin, capital of Australia’s Northern Territory, has strategic access to the world’s most exciting new economies. It is predicted that the city will be the second fastest growing in the country over the next 5 years, with 4.2% growth, behind only to Queensland. (Source: Access Deloitte Economics)

While it has been serviced in the past by major international carriers, Darwin has relied mainly on Jetstar’s DWN-SNG service for the past three years. SilkAir will now make business class available on four scheduled return flights per week between Darwin and Singapore, the heart of its extensive Southeast Asian network.

Ms Barrios said SilkAir brings an important new service for the business traveller to Darwin and the Convention Centre.

“Both Darwin and the Convention Centre will benefit from the improved access SilkAir will provide,” said Ms Barrios. “Our city’s robust economy, distinct destination appeal, and strategic location contribute to the economic vitality of the Territory, attracting major investment interest internationally and nationally. The Convention Centre has demonstrated its world-class capabilities with its achievements in its first four years of operations. This new service will also make Darwin more attractive to international associations considering hosting their event in the city.”

SilkAir is a subsidiary of the highly regarded Singapore Airlines and has a codeshare agreement with Virgin Australia. The airline flies a fleet of Airbus A319-100 which is being progressively upgraded to the A320-200. The airline won successive Best Regional Airline: Southeast Asia in 2009 and 2010 in the World Airlines Awards and in October was awarded the Regional Airline ofthe Year by the Centre for Aviation (CAPA).
