The carrier will operate each of the Singapore frequencies in compliance with the city-state’s Vaccinated Travel Lanes program, under which all flyers must be vaccinated. In addition, U.S. visitors to Singapore must still get a Covid-19 PCR test 48 hours of their flight’s departure and also upon arrival at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Singapore Airlines is also scheduled to resume nonstop San Francisco-Singapore flights in January, according to Cirium flight schedule data. The carrier resumed one-stop San Francisco-Hong Kong-Singapore flights this month.
