Silk Air Restarts Makassar flights

August 2, 2013 – 12:34 pm

Silk Air, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has launched its first flight to Makassar, the provincial capital of South Sulawesi.

Flights are to be 3 times per week – Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays, departing Chiangi airport at just after 8am, arriving Makassar at 1115. The return flight departs at 1245 and arrives Singapore at 1540. Since most flights from Europe arrive earlier than that, a direct connection should be possible.

This will be a great option for anyone travelling to South East Asia on Singapore Airlines wanting to explore Tana Toraja in South Sulawesi, and also for divers going to Raja Ampat in West Papua. Up until now guests have had to overnight near to Jakarta airport and then take a very early morning flight to Sorong. This new route will allow guests to either overnight in Makassar instead where there is a great waterfront hotel and even some local diving, or even perhaps to connect straight through to Sorong.

Travel from Europe to Raja Ampat has just gotten much better – hurray!!
