According to aviation regulator, Singapore will gradually allow travelers to transit through its Changi Airport from June 2.
In March, visitors were banned from entering or transiting through the city-state to help combat the Covid-19 pandemic but since then, foreign passengers can transit through Singapore if they are on repatriation flights arranged by their governments.
“This is part of Singapore’s strategy to gradually re-open air transport to meet the needs of our economy and our people, whilst ensuring sufficient safeguards for safe travel,” the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said.
It said airlines should submit their proposals for transfer lanes, which will be evaluated taking into account aviation safety, public health considerations, as well as the health of passengers and air crew.
Changi Airport, among the world’s busiest last year, recorded 25,200 passenger movements in April, crashing down 99.5% from the year ago.
