According to media reports, Singapore and Hong Kong have decided the launch date of the Singapore – Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB) as of 26 May. However, both parties will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation from now till 26 May 2021. If the situation continues to be steady and remain under control, both the cities will proceed with the launch, says the report.

To better safeguard public health and provide greater stability, the ATB will be launched under more stringent arrangements. Travellers on the ATB must have remained in either Singapore or Hong Kong in the last 14 days before departure. 

In addition, 14 days period must exclude any time spent in quarantine or Stay-Home Notice (SHN) arising from their last return to Singapore or Hong Kong from overseas. In addition, they must now download and install Hong Kong’s LeaveHomeSafe (LHS) app on their mobile devices before leaving Singapore for Hong Kong. The requirements for travellers from Singapore under the ATB remain the same as those announced in November 2020. 

Also, travellers are reminded that they must travel only on designated ATB flights. Currently, these ATB flights are operated by Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Travellers are advised to check with the airlines on the flights which have been designated as ATB flights. All travellers must also adhere to the prevailing border control measures and public health requirements of both cities.
