Singapore Airlines to start India flights from Nov 29 – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group will resume scheduled passenger flights between Singapore and India from November 29.
It will operate vaccinated travel lane (VTL) flights from Chennai, Delhi, and Mumbai to Singapore, providing eligible customers with quarantine-free entry into the island nation. And also non-VTL services from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, and Kolkata.
SIA is offering up to 50% off on selected fares to Singapore from points across India to celebrate its resumption of operations from India for the first time since March 2020. “Round trip fares start from Rs 13,100 all inclusive, and customers can avail of this sale from November 23-30, 2021, for travel before December 31, 2021. The special Celebration Offer fares will be available through various distribution channels from Tuesday (Nov 23),” SIA said in a statement.
Passengers travelling on non-VTL flights “must meet entry requirements into Singapore, and will face prevailing health control measures including seven days of quarantine in Singapore,” SIA said in a statement.
Scoot, SIA’s low-cost subsidiary, will operate non-VTL services from Amritsar, Hyderabad, and Tiruchirappalli.
“Customers who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents and wish to travel on the VTL services, need to apply for a Vaccinated Travel Pass (VTP) prior to their visa application. VTP applications must be made between seven and 60 calendar days before the intended date of entry into Singapore. Customers must also ensure that they are eligible to travel under the VTL arrangements before their flight,” it adds.
Passengers need to go through the detailed list of eligibility requirements for travelling to Singapore. “Short-term visitors from India may only enter Singapore via the VTL or the familial ties lane.” Customers travelling to Singapore from India on non-VTL flights will need to adhere to the Category (II) Travel and Health Control Measures laid down by the Singapore Government.
SIA GM (India) Sy Yen Chen said: “This is a momentous occasion for us as we will be resuming passenger flights to India after a 20-month long hiatus. With the resumption of flights from India, including daily VTL flights from Chennai, Delhi, and Mumbai, eligible SIA customers can finally enjoy seamless quarantine-free travel and reunite with their friends and family in Singapore.”
“We are grateful to the governments of both Singapore and India, for launching the Air Travel Bubble and the Vaccinated Travel Lane. The Celebration Offer is a gesture of thanks to our customers in India who have waited so long for Singapore Airlines to resume flights, and we look forward to welcoming our passengers back on board soon,” he added.
