Singapore Airlines is readying for the return of international travel from Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, with flights from each city to Singapore now on sale as designated vaccinated travel lane (VTL) services.
Adelaide-Singapore and Brisbane-Singapore are both now slated as VTL routes from January 15, 2022, with Perth joining the party from March 1.
Sydney and Melbourne were the first Australian cities to be added to Singapore's VTL scheme on November 8.
Under the program, travellers headed to Singapore must return a negative Covid test result within 48 hours of their inbound flight's departure, and undergo a second PCR test on arrival at Changi Airport, before isolating in their hotel room for up to 12 hours until a negative result is received.
They also have to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass no less than seven days before entering Singapore, and hold a travel insurance policy with at least SGD$30,000 of Covid cover.
From Adelaide to Singapore, flights SQ278 and SQ276 will be designated as VTL services; for Brisbane-Singapore, the VTL flights will be SQ236, SQ246 and SQ256. Both cities will see an Airbus A350 with Singapore Airline's medium-range lie-flat business class seat.
Perth-Singapore sees SQ214, SQ216 and SQ224 as VTL flights on the airline's Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, which has the same seat.
Executive Traveller understands that Singapore Airlines' timeline is based on information provided by the Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia state governments as to when international travel without quarantine is likely to resume.
