Singapore to Palau: Alii Palau Airlines and Drukair Partner for Inaugural Flight

The launch of the new service follows the signing of an open skies agreement in October 2022 between Singapore and Palau. With the new direct service, travellers can now experience the beauty of Palau, "Nature's Paradise”, in just five hours. Flying from Bhutan via Singapore Changi Airport to Palau, Drukair will connect Singapore to two of the world’s most pristine destinations.

Palau, an archipelago in the western Pacific Ocean, is renowned for its untouched natural beauty. With crystal-clear waters, thriving coral reefs, and lush forests, it offers a variety of outdoor adventures, including snorkeling, diving, hiking, and wildlife encounters. The Rock Islands Southern Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasts some of the most picturesque landscapes on Earth.

Alii Palau Airlines Managing Partner, Ms Akanksha Johri said, “Alii Palau Airlines is delighted to introduce a new era of convenience with our direct flight, effectively opening the gateway to paradise. Palau is now just a five-hour flight away from Singapore, and we firmly believe that this new route will be a gamechanger for those who were previously deterred by long flight durations. With our non-stop route from Singapore to Palau, this pristine paradise becomes effortlessly accessible from any corner of the world, facilitated by the unparalleled connectivity of Singapore Changi Airport.”

Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Executive Vice President of Air Hub and Cargo Development at Changi Airport Group said, "Changi Airport is happy to welcome a new city link to Palau, which enhances Changi’s network with the Southwest Pacific region. With the launch of this non-stop flight, Singapore travellers can now enjoy a seamless travel experience to Palau and visit this island paradise in just five hours. Travellers from Palau can also use the new flight to visit Singapore and other countries, leveraging on Changi Airport’s connectivity to Southeast Asia and beyond. Changi Airport is happy to partner Drukair for this new flight to Palau - we have forged a strong partnership over the years. We look forward to welcoming passengers on the Singapore-Palau route with Alii Palau.”

Mr Tandi Wangchuk, Chief Executive Officer of Drukair remarked, “As we launch our new route from Bhutan to Palau via Singapore's Changi Airport in partnership with Alii Palau Airlines, we're forging a path of unparalleled connectivity. This partnership symbolizes our commitment to opening the world to travellers, making the extraordinary journey from the heart of the Himalayas to the pristine shores of Palau more accessible and enjoyable than ever before. We're thrilled to unite these incredible destinations, offering a gateway to adventure, culture, and natural wonders."

 “While travel has always been an adventure, the new direct flights from Singapore to Palau open up a world of possibilities. It's not just a journey; it's an exhilarating connection to a pristine paradise waiting to be explored. This new route from Singapore to Palau isn't just about convenience; it's about the prospect of discovering an unspoiled jewel in the Pacific Ocean. An opportunity for travellers to embark on an authentic transformative trip. We are thrilled at the opportunity to bring travellers to Palau for a trip of a lifetime.” said from Francis Lee, General Manager of SoulTrips
