This is a good deal for flying one of the world’s best Economy Class products, with layovers in Singapore generally short due to high frequencies to/from Australia.

Winter is low season in Turkey, with highs around the 8-11°C mark in January-March. Whilst it will be brisk, there won’t be as many tourists.
