Koalas Fly Business Class To Singapore

Four koalas travelling to Singapore have been given a quick taste of Qantas' Business Class services and it was equipped with fresh eucalyptus leaves.

Paddle, Pellita, Chan and Idalia have been sent from Australia as a gift to mark Singapore's 50th anniversary of independence. The furry friends were photographed chomping on some leaves and being served some refreshments before departing on their big journey on Monday.

While not actually travelling among the elite, the animals are still being treated as premium passengers in specially built containers fit with a eucalyptus tree and climate control.

According to Channel News Asia, the koalas will be on loan to Singapore for six months at a purpose-built enclosure in Singapore Zoo. The move will then be made permanent after their enclosure is completed.

Julie Bishop announced this special gift on Thursday and even got up close and personal with the cuddly creatures at Brisbane's Lone Pine Sanctuary. 'I can't think of a better way to express our friendship, our partnership, the depth of relationship,' she said.

The koala loan aims to symbolise the relationship between Australia and Singapore and Ms Bishop will officially hand over the animals during her visit in May.

The Lone Pine Sanctuary in Brisbane is the world's first and biggest koala sanctuary and contains over 130 of the creatures. According to the Strait Times, the koalas will be able to be visited in late May, after they have undergone necessary quarantine practices and have settled into their new enclosure.
