CAIRNS ON VERGE OF MASSIVE INCREASE IN TOURISM AFTER WORK BY TTNQ AND MAYOR GETS SINGAPORE SERVICE
A major increase in tourist numbers as the result of new direct flights from Singapore is due to be announced by Singapore Airlines' new Jetstar-type subsidiary "Scoot".
In a project spearheaded by Cairns Mayor Val Schier and TTNQ CEO Rob Giason, Cairns is looking to be in the first wave of destinations announced by Scoot when SQ makes their new service announcements shortly.
Service will be provided by reconfigured SQ 777 long haul aircraft and will be timed to connect with services from Europe, the Middle East, India, and other Asian destinations.
