Singapore Airlines and Scoot will gradually operate flights to 10 Indian cities from November 29


Singapore Airlines and its subsidiary Scoot will gradually operate flights from Singapore to 10 Indian cities from Nov. 29, a statement said on Tuesday. The Singapore Civil Aviation Authority (CAAS) announced on Sunday that Singapore and India had reached an agreement to resume commercial passenger flights between the two countries from November 29.

Air travel to Singapore currently takes place on the vaccinated travel route (VTL) and the unvaccinated travel route. VTL allows fully vaccinated travelers to travel without quarantine to Singapore. Singapore Airlines, in its statement, said on Tuesday that it will launch direct daily VTL services from Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai on November 29, subject to regulatory approvals.

Additionally, Singapore Airlines has announced that it will operate non-VTL direct flights from Singapore to Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Kochi from November 30. The full-service carrier will also launch non-VTL direct flights on the Singapore-Hyderabad route from December 1.

“Singapore Airlines can operate both VTL and non-VTL flights on the same routes, so it is important that customers select their flights carefully,” he said. Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary Scoot will launch non-VTL services on the Singapore-Hyderabad and Singapore-Tiruchirapalli routes from November 30 and December 2, respectively.

Scoot will also operate direct non-VTL flights on the Singapore-Amritsar route from January 31 next year, he said. Travelers on a VTL flight entering Singapore will be required to undergo two COVID-19 tests – one within two days of flight departure and an arrival test at Singapore airport. VTL passengers would not undergo any quarantine.
