Lufthansa says demand for Singapore flights tripled
Singapore announced on August 19, 2021, that it would open a vaccinated travel lane (VTL) to Germany and Brunei for vaccinated passengers as of September 8, 2021.
“Singapore opening up not only enables people to visit friends and family or meet business partners again, but also sends an important signal to other countries in the region,” said Elise Becker, Head of Sales for Lufthansa (LHAB) (LHA) in Asia-Pacific, in a statement on August 27, 2021.
While quarantine has been dropped, there are strict requirements for entry to Singapore under the travel lane system, including applying for a vaccinated travel pass and health insurance, as well as proof of vaccination. Travelers must undertake a pre-departure COVID test, a further one upon arrival at the airport, as well as additional tests on day three and day of their stay.
