Safest Airline In The World And Their Price Tag Versus Singapore Airlines

2 min read

When choosing an airline to travel with, there are usually a few things that we take note of,

  • Price; and
  • Safety

One usually takes precedence over the other. A friend of mine told me, no matter how cheap the flight tickets for Malaysia Airlines are, she would never fly with them.

Another told me that she would gladly pick Malaysia Airlines over anyone else because they have really cheap and the flights are usually empty (plus, you get the entire row to yourself sometimes!).

Well, it is evidently cheaper to fly with the respective country’s airlines that you are travelling to. Well, almost all except to Hong Kong. And it’s safe too.

Singapore Airlines do have their sale periods which drops the ticket prices quite a bit, I flew to Melbourne last year with SIA for about S$601. More than 50% off the original price!


How about flying to London Heathrow Airport?

BONG. BONG. BONG. How about a popular destination especially for long-haul flights? Like London?

Would it be cheaper to fly there using the other airlines or Singapore Airlines?

Note: Table is arranged in ascending order (Cheapest to most expensive)

Every other airline is cheaper than Singapore Airline except Cathay Pacific. But for some, they might choose to stick with Singapore Airlines for its convenience and to collect KrisFlyer miles! Which group are you in?

  • Cheaper price or
  • Convenience / KrisFlyer miles?
