SIA flight from Christchurch lands in Singapore

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines said its flight SQ298 out of Christchurch on Tuesday morning departed at 11.50am local time, an hour before the earthquake struck New Zealand's second largest city. The flight landed in Singapore at 4.51pm. Responding to queries from Channel NewsAsia, SIA said it is still unable to confirm if flight SQ 297 departing Singapore for Christchurch will proceed as scheduled at 7.45pm. It is closely monitoring the situation and will provide updates as soon as information is available. The carrier advises customers to check its website regularly. SIA said it expects disruptions to its operations in Christchurch. The airport in Christchurch has been shut after the earthquake struck the city earlier on Tuesday. SIA operates a daily flight between Singapore and Christchurch and also flies to Auckland five times a week.
