Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passengers can now transit through Singapore Changi Airport from select cities in China, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea, to any destination in the SIA Group network currently operated by SIA, SilkAir or Scoot.
This is in addition to the transit flights from some cities in Australia and New Zealand that were announced earlier this month.
Here is a full list of cities approved for transit:
These transit flights are only for outbound journeys from select cities, and passengers will not be able to transit from other points in the SIA Group network through Singapore into these cities
The carrier says ticket sales for these new destinations will be available starting today.
Passengers can 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.
The airline also says passengers 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.
In its announcement, the airline notes that 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.
