While WLG would need the runway extension to get a direct service to Asia, if SQ increase service and there are enough passengers traveling WLG-SIN, then the extension project may gain the support it needs. I doubt WLG will see a direct service to LAX (the most likely entrance point to the US) in the next 15-20 years even with the extension, but I could see 2 or even 3 Asian carriers jumping into WLG (CZ, CX, CI, HU, or even EK if they can get more 5th freedom AU-NZ rights).
CBR on the other hand has been looking for international service for years now, and has the facilities to handle flights, and the market could certainly handle a daily E190 or 738/320 service to AKL or WLG and this new service will test the waters for the CBR-Asia (and possibly connecting to Europe) market. I think that if there are enough passengers connecting to Europe, EK will jump into CBR.
