Cape Town to Sing

Hi Frank,

I have found out tht you do require an agent. SQ or SAA won't do it alone. I hav one agent that want $3k US to send it but am waiting on another quote tomorrow. Lets see? BTW, do you know of any biker friendly accom herein CT or the area?

Cheers
Ivan

Who says? I got a quote from SAA once .. you will need a Dangerous Goods Decleration ..
Qantas also fly there .. but they'd be to Bangkok? .. Thai Air as well?
