IndiGo resumes flights to Singapore under air bubble pact
 
New Delhi, Low-cost carrier IndiGo on Wednesday announced to operate flights to Singapore starting November 29 under air bubble agreement between India and the South Asian country.
Air bubble is temporary arrangement between two countries aimed at restarting commercial passenger services when regular international flights are suspended.
"Following incorporation of air bubble between India and Singapore, IndiGo has been allocated a total of 3,618 seats per week, of which 1624 seats will be operated on the Chennai – Singapore route under Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL). The rest of the capacity will be utilised under non-VTL conditions for travel to and from Singapore," IndiGo said in a statement.
Airline Chief Executive Officer Ronojoy Dutta said that international connectivity under air bubble arrangement has been helpful in slowly bringing back the international travel demand.
"The situation is improving rapidly, and we are hopeful that this will further help citizens of India and Singapore to travel with ease for various purposes,” he said.
As Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) guidelines, travellers must be fully vaccinated and present a digital proof of vaccination and they will have to undergo two Covid-19 tests – a pre-departure test within two days.
"After tests travellers will have to remain self-isolated until the result is confirmed to be negative. Children aged 12 years and below who are not vaccinated will be allowed to travel under the VTL into Singapore if they are accompanied by a VTL traveller who meets all VTL requirements," the airline said explaining the VTL guidelines.
Further, short-term visitors must purchase travel insurance, with a minimum coverage of S$30,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs, prior to travel to Singapore.
Non-VTL flights into Singapore will be subject to the prevailing public health requirements based on the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH)’s Country/Region Classification for Border Measures.
