Post-Covid transit through Singapore, one of the region’s busiest airline hubs, is well organised as testified by a number of travellers who have reported their experience to Economy Traveller, including this couple who passed through in July 2020. Transit was only available on Singapore Airlines flights at the time and this has only recently been expanded to include the additional airlines.

There are a number of conditions you must keep in mind:

  • Book the full journey on one booking
  • Check with the relevant authorities to ensure you meet the entry requirements for your final destination
    • (restrictions may apply)

Transit passengers must adhere to the following measures:

  • Travellers to Singapore must present a valid negative COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test taken within 48 hours before departure.
  • At port of origin check-in, transit passengers will be provided a wristband they must wear for the duration of their journey
    • This allows easy identification by the airport and airline staff
  • On board, transit passengers will be seated at the front of the aircraft and will disembark first
  • On arrival in Singapore, all transit passengers will be met by airport staff and guided to a Transit Holding Area or Transit Hotel
  • Transit passengers with a tight connection time will be ushered to the departure gate directly
  • When the onward flight is ready for boarding, transit passengers will be escorted to their departure gate and ushered to a designated zone before boarding
    • They will board the aircraft after all other passengers

Please note while in Singapore, all travellers are required to wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing. These measures are in line with government regulations and enhance Jetstar Asia’s Fly Well program. For more information, visit the Fly Well page.
