SINGAPORE, 27 April 2021: The Singapore – Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble will launch on 26 May, according to a Singapore Airlines news update Monday.

The bubble applies to residents in Hong Kong and Singapore who will be able to fly between the two territories for business or leisure without having to quarantine at the destination or on their return home. It will involve both Singapore Airlines and Hong Kong’s carrier Cathay Pacific.

Online travel agency giant, Expedia, commented on the announcement made by the Singapore Transport Ministry on the resumption of the travel bubble.
“This evening 26 April, we have received positive reaction from travellers, with searches for travel to Hong Kong up by more than 280% compared to the last seven days,” said the Expedia spokesperson.

To travel on a designated ATB Singapore Airline flight,
passengers must undergo Covid-19 tests at their own expense.

Health Measures

Customers flying under the ATB arrangement must meet the
eligibility criteria and required health measures that include having a travel
history to Singapore and/or Hong Kong in the last 14 days prior to the flight
departure.

They must book only dedicated ATB flights and obtaining a
negative test result for both pre-departure and on-arrival Covid-19 tests. The
14-day period must exclude any compulsory quarantine or Stay-Home Notice (SHN)
period arising from their last return to Singapore or Hong Kong from overseas.

Hong Kong requires its residents who depart Hong Kong on ATB
flights to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (at least 14 days after
receiving the second shot of Covid-19 vaccine). Certain exemptions apply. Passengers departing Singapore on ATB flights do not need to
be vaccinated.

All short-term visitors entering Singapore will also need to
apply for an Air Travel Pass between 7 to 30 days before arrival.
