Singapore Airlines Transit Flights

Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Scoot customers can transit through Singapore Changi Airport from selected points in Asia, Europe and the South West Pacific region to any destination in the SIA Group network currently operated by SIA, SilkAir or Scoot.

“SIA and SilkAir will continue to adjust our capacity to match the demand for international air travel,” said the airline.

SIA, SilkAir and Scoot customers can also transit through Singapore Changi Airport from selected points in Asia, Europe and the South West Pacific region to any destination in the SIA Group network currently operated by SIA, SilkAir or Scoot.

The transit flights through Singapore are only for outbound journeys from the list of cities in the table here. Passengers will not be able to transit from other points in the SIA Group network through Singapore into these cities.

Eligible customers may book a return flight only if both the point of origin and the final destination are in the list of cities approved for transit through Singapore.

For example, customers may book a return flight for Tokyo (NRT) – Singapore – Sydney as both Tokyo (NRT) and Sydney are among the list of departure cities for transit flights.

However, customers may only book a one-way outbound journey from Sydney – Singapore – New York as New York (JFK) is not among the list of departure cities for transit flights. Transfers to destinations in Mainland China are currently not available.

Due to further restrictions imposed by the Australian Government, Singapore Airlines will not operate passenger services from Singapore to Melbourne from 1 July to 08 August 2020. Flights from Melbourne to Singapore from 1 July to 30 August 2020 are operating as listed. 

Customers should book the full journey on one ticket, instead of splitting it up into separate tickets, to comply with regulatory requirements during this period. They should also ensure that they meet the entry requirements for their final destination.

Transfers in Singapore are only allowed on flights between airlines within the SIA Group (Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Scoot). Transfers to and from flights operated by other airlines are currently not permitted.

Fast lanes arrangements have been established to facilitate essential business and official travel between Singapore and six provinces and municipalities in Mainland China (Chongqing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Tianjin and Zhejiang) from 8 June 2020.

Singapore and Malaysia Flight Arrangement

Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) arrangement has been established to facilitate essential business and official travel between Singapore and Malaysia.

Effective 10 August 2020, only business or official travellers sponsored by a Singapore government agency may submit applications to use the Singapore-Malaysia Reciprocal Green Lane. Applications for company-sponsored travellers to use the Singapore-Malaysia Reciprocal Green Lane can be submitted from end-August.

For the first phase of the arrangements, only in-bound travellers to Singapore from China who are sponsored by government agencies may submit applications through their respective sponsors. Applications for company-sponsored travellers will open at a later date.

To travel via these fast lanes, all travellers must have a negative Covid-19 test result certificate.

In addition, customers travelling to Singapore are required to have a valid SafeTravel Pass, a return air ticket and a valid visa (for visa-required passport holders) for pre-boarding checks.

Some provinces and municipalities may also require international arrivals into China to undergo a 14-day quarantine upon their return.

Residents of Singapore travelling to Mainland China should minimally have a negative Covid-19 test result certificate, valid visa and a Letter of Invitation.

The application process, documents required and prevailing Covid-19 control measures may vary among the provinces and municipalities. Customers are encouraged to verify the latest requirements with the relevant authorities.

Singapore citizens, permanent residents and long-term pass holders returning from China will need to serve a 14-day Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) upon entry into Singapore.
