20 mths on, flights to Singapore from Mumbai resume Mon | Mumbai News


Mumbai: After a 20-month hiatus, flights between Mumbai and Singapore are set to resume from November 29 with seven weekly flights to be operated by Singapore Airlines, three weekly flights by Vistara and twice-a-week flights by Air India, said a Mumbai International Airport Ltd (MIAL) spokesperson. The spokesperson added that flight operations from Mumbai will be under Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL), introduced for travellers to enjoy quarantine-free access to the country, said . Fully vaccinated flyers can now gain a quarantine-free entry into Singapore by flying on VTL flights and carrying a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP), which can be applied for online.
The VTL passengers must present a digital proof of vaccination. IndiGo, which will be launching flights to Singapore from Chennai under VTL, listed the norms for VTL travel. “The passengers will have to undergo two Covid-19 tests – a pre-departure test within two days before departure for Singapore (e.g., test taken any time on 8 Nov is valid till 10 Nov 2359 hrs) while another test on-arrival at Changi airport.
After tests travellers have to remain self-isolated until the result is confirmed to be negative. Children upto 12 who are not vaccinated can travel under the VTL into Singapore if accompanied by a VTL traveller who meets all VTL requirements, said IndiGo. “Short-term visitors must purchase travel insurance, with a minimum coverage of Singapore dollar 30,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs, prior to travel to Singapore,” IndiGo added.
