VTL and other flights
A notification from the Airlines said that the recommencement of scheduled passenger services between Singapore and India would be a welcome move.
“These arrangements will allow families and loved ones to finally reunite, as well as support the demand for business travel between the two countries. Subject to regulatory approval, Singapore Airlines will operate daily VTL services from Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai to Singapore and these flights are open for booking and will be indicated as VTL flights on our website accordingly,” the notification said.
Additionally, the Airline will progressively operate non-VTL services from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi and Kolkata to Singapore from November 29, 2021.
Scoot Airlines, a low-cost, subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, will operate four-times weekly non-VTL services between Singapore and Hyderabad from November 30, 2021 and three-times weekly non-VTL services between Singapore and Tiruchirappalli from December 2, 2021. Bookings for these flights are now open.
The notification said that customers who are not Singapore citizens or permanent residents and wish to travel on the VTL services must 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.
A detailed list of eligibility requirements for customers travelling on VTL services can be found here. Short-term visitors from India may only enter Singapore via the Vaccinated Travel Lane or the Familial Ties Lane.
Customers travelling to Singapore from India on non-VTL flights must adhere to the Category (II) Travel and Health Control Measures specified by the Singapore government.
