In addition, Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, will also operate four-times weekly non-VTL services between Singapore and Hyderabad from November 30, 2021, and three-times weekly non-VTL services between Singapore and Tiruchirappalli from December 2, 2021, as well as five-times weekly non-VTL services between Singapore and Amritsar from January 31, 2022.
Bookings have now been opened for all these flights. Welcoming the agreement to resume scheduled passenger services between Singapore and India, the airlines said that this arrangement would not just allow families and loved ones to finally reunite, but would also support the demand for business travel between the two countries.
Non-VTL passengers will have to quarantine
Those travelling to Singapore from India on non-VTL flights would need to take a Covid-19 pre-departure test within two days before departure. The test can be either an Antigen Rapid Test (ART) administered by a trained professional (self-swabs not allowed) or a PCR Test taken at an internationally accredited or recognised lab/clinic/medical facility. The report needs to be in English and should contain the date of test, traveller’s name, date of birth or passport number (per the passport used to travel to Singapore).They would also need to serve a seven-day quarantine at either their place of residence, a hotel or a serviced apartment, the cost of which should be borne by the traveller. Before the end of the quarantine period, travellers would also need to take a Covid-19 PCR test.
