Singapore has a slim schedule of flights but Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney are set to join as Singapore Airlines start rebuilding its Australian network from June the 8th.
Singapore itself remains closed to visitors. Gradually travelers will be allowed to transit through Changi Airport. Special transit lanes are in the process of being established.
Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President South West Pacific Philip Goh said, “We are committed to re-establishing Australia’s connection to Singapore and the rest of the world in a Covid-safe manner during these challenging times" and “with Australia’s travel restrictions remaining at Level 4, these flights will provide additional cargo capacity for carriage of imports and exports between the cities and our global network, while allowing people who have an urgent and essential need to travel, or return home, to do so.
The June-July schedule of Singapore Airlines provide flights direct for Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide while Brisbane flights will run via Sydney. The Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900 aircraft will be used.
Sydney will be serviced 5 times weekly, Melbourne twice, Adelaide once and operations to Auckland will be twice while Christchurch just once.
Most Australians are currently prohibited from flying overseas. Some exemptions on the grounds of essential travel are being granted or if a compelling reason for needing to leave Australia can be demonstrated. Discussions between Australian and Singapore governments have started on opening travel between the countries without the 14 day isolation period.
