© ROSLAN RAHMAN / AFP Wellington is preparing to welcome a flight that will further cement links between the capitals of New Zealand and Australia.

A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 is set to land on Wednesday afternoon, with the airline saying it will be the first to have a service between Wellington and Canberra.

The flight is part of a "Capital Express" route - Wellington-Canberra-Singapore - which will operate four times a week.

It comes after Wellington and Canberra signed a new sister city agreement in July.
