Singapore-Hong Kong air travel bubble decision pushed back to July

The Singapore-Hong Kong air travel bubble has been pushed back again.

The future of the much talked-about, but still yet to be implemented Singapore-Hong Kong air travel bubble (ATB) remains in the air this week. Singapore's Ministry of Transport has advised that the issue will be revisited in early July.

It noted that the plan for non-quarantine flights between the two city states was originally planned to begin on May 26, but was deferred by mutual agreement between Minister for Transport Mr S Iswaran and Hong Kong Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Mr Edward Yau, due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in Singapore.

Since then, the COVID-19 situation in Singapore has improved, with the number of community cases and local unlinked COVID-19 cases showing a downward trend. Hong Kong’s COVID-19 situation continues to remain stable, with very few community cases over the past few weeks, the Singapore Ministry advised.

"Both Singapore and Hong Kong remain strongly committed to launching the ATB safely," a press release has advised. "We will continue to monitor the public health situation in both places closely. Both Minister Iswaran and Secretary Yau have maintained close contact and agreed that both sides would review the situation in early July, before making a decision on the target launch dates of the ATB flights."
