BIG SG50 AERIAL PERFORMANCE CAUSED AIRSPACE CONGESTION & DELAYED MY QANTAS FLIGHT

Dear All Singapore Stuff,

According to flight crews, my flight to Melbourne was delayed for more than 4 hours now , apparently due to ‘SG50 celebrations’ which caused an airspace congestion/closure.

Affected flights includes code-share flights Qantas QF36, Emirates EK5036, Finnair AY5013, etc., bound for Melbourne Tullamarine Airport from Singapore. It is scheduled to depart at 1955hrs initially.

Update: Situation at 0036hrs

0040hrs: Passengers are requested to return duty free items, go through immigration clearance again and retire for the night at a Qantas arranged hotel. Replacement flight tentatively arranged at 0900hrs.
