Diverted flights fly back to Changi

Four Singapore flights that were diverted to Batam's Hang Nadim International Airport at around midday on Sunday due to bad weather flew back to Changi International Airport from 2 p.m. onward.

Batam Free Trade Zone Authority (BPK-FTZ) spokesman Dwi Djoko Wiwoho said the planes gradually headed to Singapore.

The four flights were Silk Air, flying from Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Vietnam Air and Tiger Airways from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam; and Singapore Cargo from Auckland, New Zealand.

Hang Nadim is often a transit airport for aircraft flying to Singapore in certain conditions, as it is the closest airport to Changi. Hang Nadim is located 18 miles west of Changi airport. It takes seven minutes by air from one airport to another.
