    Sorry but cant answer your query as we are not there yet. Singapore Airlines fly from Manchester via Singapore and then direct to Adelaide. Apparently they have a really good transit hotel in Singapore for while you are waiting for your next flight.

     

    I think Emirates fly from Newcastle to Sydney or Melbourne via Dubai but then you have to get another flight to Adelaide.

    Hi we are from Pontefract and came over in September ,We used Qantas fantastic no complaints at all on a 457 visa and had 40kg baggage allowance from Heathrow ,Singapore into Adelaide. For our shipping we used John Mason who were excellent . We rented a fully furnished holiday let from Donn Jacob and hired a car from MD autos both of them are on here.

    Hiya, from Saltburn by the sea, we came out in Sept last year, used Richardsons Removals from stockton (they were fantastic, service at both ends was top notch....highly recommend) we flew with BA/Qantas Newcastle-London-brief stop in Singapore (we were on the big airbus and had about 2 hrs in the airport before getting back onboard)-Melbourne-Adelaide :)

    Good luck with everything x

Flying from Newcastle-Heathrow-Bangkok-Sydney-Adelaide. Been here just over a year and loving it. Need anymore advice/help, just send a message, be glad to help....

    Thanks for the replies. What about for a medical who did you use and what was cost? Think hubby just needs a chest X-ray done, they said me & our daughter didn't need anything. We're going on a 457 & hubby is south African...

    Hi

     

    We just arrived in adelaide yesterday, we did the Newcastle to Heathrow BA flight and then singapore airlines to singapore and then on to adelaide, we had a 5 hour stopover and that worked well with the kids.

    We used John Masons for removals, can't comment on this end yet as are stuff is just about to leave but the UK side was great, packers were very efficient and friendly and the estimate was almost exact to the quote.

     

    Good luck with the move

    Well we have our 457 in hand, 4 shipping quotes and are looking at flights now, would rather avoid Oz airports and go direct to Adelaide from Singapore etc so looking at that now.

    think it's 2% of the cost of your contents value... haven't looked into it fully yet
