Singapore Airlines: A380’s to Sydney from 1 December
Dreams of the return of quarantine free travel between Australia and Singapore have been touted for the last 20 months, seesawing between yes and no all the while.
Looks like you can start betting on it from November, with our PM, Scotty from Marketing advising that an agreement could be signed as soon as next week.
‘Vaccinated Travel Lanes’
These are already a feature of travel between the island state and Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and South Korea. For Australia the proposal is that fully immunised residents of Singapore and Australia can travel between the two countries without quarantine. SCOVID is giving priority to business travellers and students before tourists, which are likely to follow in December. Sydney and Melbourne – both abandoning quarantine from 1 November will be front of the queue, as will be airlines Qantas and Singapore.
Flights brought forward
Qantas has brought forward its Sydney to Singapore flights to 23 November – 4 weeks earlier than previously announced. Singapore is putting its biggest bird – the A380 back on the Sydney daily route as of 1 December, as well as a daily B777.
This is getting exciting – so many airlines returning their best birds to the air, and opening up their existing flights to passengers
