Singapore and India to resume flights under the vaccinated travel lane scheme
Singapore and India have reached an agreement to resume commercial flights between the two countries beginning November 29, 2021.
According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), commercial passenger flights between India and Singapore will start with six designated daily services from Mumbai, Chennai, and Delhi. The service will come under the quarantine-free travel as part of the vaccinated travel lane (VTL) scheme, which was introduced by the Singaporean government in September 2021.
According to the CAAS, airlines will also be able to operate non-VTL flights between Singapore and India.
However, the CAAS remarked that “travelers traveling on non-VTL flights into Singapore will be subject to the prevailing public health” requirements (which can be found here: https://bit.ly/32n0Kcs).
“The airlines will announce the schedules for the VTL and non-VTL flights when ready,” read the CAAS statement.
