Amritsar, July 18

In a further boost to international air connectivity from Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport, the Singapore Airlines, Scoot, will now connect Amritsar with Vancouver in Canada and San Francisco, Seattle, and Los Angeles in the USA via one of the world’s best airports — Changi Airport in Singapore.

Welcoming the decision, members of FlyAmritsar, an organisation advocating increased air connectivity to the holy city, stated that before the Covid pandemic, Scoot along with its group partner Singapore Airlines connected Amritsar with many destinations, including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in Australia.

Sameep Singh, global convener of FlyAmritsar, said, “After the resumption of its flights to Amritsar in February, the airline has been successful in recapturing the travel market to Southeast Asia and Australia, and they are now eyeing Amritsar’s North America air travel market, especially to Vancouver and San Francisco, by connecting with flights through their flagship carrier Singapore Airlines.”

He said with the airline again starting direct non-stop flights to west coast of North America, Punjab woul once again be connected to these destinations from Amritsar through Singapore.

The FlyAmritsar Initiative recently held a special meeting with officials from Scoot airline and urged them to increase the number of flights to Amritsar. The organisation had urged the airlines to reduce the long layover time at Singapore for passengers arriving from Vancouver and other destinations in the US and Australia.
