Ask anyone and they'll say Pulau Redang, or Redang Island
, is one of the most beautiful islands in Malaysia
. Known for its azure blue skies, sandy beaches and calming sea breezes, the island is a popular destination for families and honeymooners 😍 And if the island didn't sound charming enough, now Singaporeans can travel straight to Redang Island
via airplane! No longer will there be a need for transits or ferry rides 😌

Travel Directly To Redang Island From Singapore
Getting To Redang Island: The Old Way
Prior to this airline service, the journey to Redang Island from Singapore could take up to 6 hours! Holidaymakers would have to depart from Changi Airport
and transit at Kuala Lumpur before boarding a domestic flight to Kuala Terengganu. Then, they'd have to take 45-minute ferry ride to Redang Island. That's a pretty long journey! 😱

Berjaya Airline's New Redang Island Service
Now, travellers from Singapore can instead head to Seletar Airport for a flight over to Redang Island by charter airline Berjaya Air. This route cuts down the travel time for Singapore-based travellers by 4-5 hours! 😍 Taking approximately 1h and 20 minutes, you can now forego lugging your luggage from vehicle to vehicle, and instead, sit back, relax and enjoy the view.

Berjaya Air is a charter operator, which means that they do not operate on scheduled flights. If you'd like a direct flight over, you’ll have to book a flight with an accommodation package or charter a flight to The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort. Packages offered by The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort include the flight + room package which starts from MYR6,288 nett / SGD$2,096 nett per person per package.
Although pricier than the old route, it's perfect for the island vacay or honeymoon you deserve!
That being said, staying at The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort with their Enchanting Redang Escapade package
means you get to enjoy 3 nights' stay inclusive of a hygiene pack, a turtle discovery snorkelling experience (and other activities), a flight from Singapore to Redang, and more! Guests will also have access to the Seletar Business Aviation Centre and be entitled to a 15-kilogram check-in luggage allowance per person, express boarding, as well as refreshments on board. 😋
