SIA GROUP’S QUARANTINE-FREE VACCINATED TRAVEL LANE NETWORK EXPANDS TO 14 CITIES

Singapore Airlines 787-10

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group today expanded its quarantine-free Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) network to 14 cities, with additional points expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

This comes as Singapore widened its VTL arrangements to include Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America. These are on top of the existing VTL arrangements with Brunei and Germany, which began in September 2021.

Singapore Airlines will operate VTL services from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, London, Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Paris, and Rome starting 19 October 2021. SIA’s VTL services from Seoul will begin on 16 November 2021. Today, SIA operates VTL services from Bandar Seri Begawan, Frankfurt, and Munich.

Scoot, SIA’s sister airline, will operate VTL flights from Berlin from 20 October 2021.

Multi-city itineraries within VTL countries are allowed if customers meet the 14-day travel history requirement, which includes transit countries. For example, a traveller may fly from Singapore to Paris, and then Paris to Amsterdam, and still be eligible for the VTL flight from Amsterdam to Singapore. However, a customer who flies from Singapore to Los Angeles via Tokyo[1] will not be eligible for SIA’s non-stop VTL flight from Los Angeles if the stay in Los Angeles is less than 14 days.

Customers travelling on the VTL flights can also enjoy fuss-free transfers via Singapore Changi Airport to 59 destinations within the SIA Group network.

The SIA Group’s VTL flight schedule can be found in Annexe A. All customers must ensure that they are eligible for Singapore’s VTL arrangements before their flights.

“Singapore’s expansion of the VTL arrangements to 11 countries is great news for our customers, who can now reunite with their loved ones more easily or finally go on that overseas holiday,” said Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Executive Vice President Commercial, Singapore Airlines.

“The SIA Group supports all measures to reopen Singapore to quarantine-free international travel. This will enable the safe and gradual recovery of Changi Airport as a major air hub, backed by rising vaccination rates and confidence in the robust health and safety measures across the end-to-end customer journey.”

SIA has implemented myriad digital solutions for the well-being of our customers, and to support a comfortable and seamless experience.
