Meanwhile, those who are from Singapore can travel to VTL countries without quarantine provided they meet each VTL country’s specific requirements.
In late December 2021, at the height of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, Singapore suspended the sale of VTL tickets.
The announcement of additional VTL countries came as the Singapore Airshow, one of the most attended aviation networking events which was quieter than usual this year, concluded on the 18th of February 2022.
