Launch Of Singapore – Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble Flights To Be Deferred
Given the evolving COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong, Singapore Minister for Transport, Ong Ye Kung, has announced that the launch of the Singapore – Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flights will be deferred by two weeks. This decision was reached following a discussion between Minister Ong and Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, Edward Yau, earlier today. This is to safeguard public health in both cities as well as travellers’ own health.
2. Singapore and Hong Kong will review the new launch date of the ATB flights within two weeks. An update will be provided at a later date.
3. Travellers may still continue their journey on non-designated ATB flights. However, such travellers will be subject to the prevailing border control and health requirements of both cities. For example, Singapore residents returning from Hong Kong will be subject to a 7-day Stay-Home Notice upon entry into Singapore.
4. The airlines will also be contacting affected passengers to render assistance. Passengers may also reach out to their airlines regarding their travel plans.
