I don't know about direct flights, but PIA fly to KL in Malaysia, and that's a simple short-hop connection down to SIN.

You will find lot's of previous discussion of salaries vs costs/accommodation etc., in the 'Relocation' section here > forum33.html

SQ was supposed to start Direct flights but that didn't happen .. the schedule was removed.

IN any case, there are enough convenient 1 stop services, from UL and AI .. and a bit of longer routes via Dubai, KUL, BKK and more ..

You will find explicit discussion of these matters in the previously linked section.

You can't expect people to go and find them, just for you, when you can do so yourself.

Besides, whilst reading through the previously linked section, you will also learn the answer to the next batch of questions, you haven't even thought of yet :)

Yep I noticed that. I use Sri Lanka Air a lot - the CMB hub has some good connections into the ME and very cheap onward flights to London.
