Over 40,000 tonnes of fresh South Australian produce, seafood and meat left Adelaide bound for Singapore under a new agreement that will see local businesses once again have a direct freight route into key export markets across Asia.

Singapore Airlines re-established a direct freight route for South Australian exporters who have been doing it tough during COVID-19 which sees two A350-390 airbus flights leave Adelaide.

The deal was done as part of the Federal Government’s $110 million International Freight Assistance Mechanism (IFAM). The IFAM is part of the $1 billion Relief and Recovery Fund to support regions, communities and industry sectors that have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
