Canberra airport has finally gone international, with Singapore Airlines flying Singapore to Wellington via Canberra and back!
As a kid, I remember travelling overseas from Canberra used to be such a pain. Invariably, it would mean flying to Sydney. And in the days prior to the Qantas-Australian Airlines merger and interlining, it was especially nightmarish for passengers who had to get pick up their bags in Sydney, make their way to the international airport, and recheck their bags at the international terminal.
Coming back wasn't any easier, with the risk of missing the domestic connection from Sydney due to long delays at Customs.
