- Route will operate daily from March 27
- Dedicated London Heathrow – Singapore flights temporarily cancelled
British Airways is bringing back the Kangaroo route, originating from London Heathrow to Sydney Kingsford Smith via Singapore Changi from March 27, 2022, after a two-year absence.
BA15/16 will operate daily, mostly with the Boeing 787-9 and occasional Boeing 777-300ER, departing London Heathrow at 9.25 pm local time and landing at Singapore Changi at 5.45 pm one day later for a 1 hour and 40 minutes transit before taking off again at 7.25 pm and reaching Sydney Kingsford Smith at 6.10 am two days later.
At the same time, BA11/12 operating 4x weekly from London Heathrow to Singapore will be temporarily suspended until October 30, 2022, in line with the reduced demand over uncertainty on the ongoing pandemic.
Customers departing from Singapore will not be able to use the British Airways lounge as it remains closed and will instead be directed to use the Marhaba lounge. As a Oneworld airline, they may also use the Qantas lounge which reopened on December 3, 2021.
Qantas too will resume its daily iconic Kangaroo route QF1/2 from Sydney Kingsford Smith to London Heathrow via Singapore Changi from March 27, 2022, after temporarily substituting its Singapore stopover in favor of Darwin due to restrictions imposed by the Singapore government.
The Australian-based airline will initially operate the route with the Boeing 787-9.
