Singapore to restrict airspace during Trump-Kim meeting

Travellers are advised to delay flights to Singapore from 10 to 14 June.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) confirmed that airspace restrictions over Singapore will be in place from 10 June 2018 to 14 June 2018.

This is in response to the proposed meeting between US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that will be held at Sentosa next week.

This followed reports that CAAS and MINDEF have issued notices to airmen on the airspace restrictions through the usual aeronautical information channel on 4 and 6 June 2018.

"Travellers are advised to expect delays for flights arriving at and departing from Singapore during this period," the announcement said.
