Malindo Air offers one daily Kuala Lumpur-Singapore VTL flight as its share of those allocated for travel between Singapore and Malaysia. Borders reopen between the two on 29th November 2021, with the launch of ‘vaccinated travel lanes’ (VTL). The allocated vaccinated travel lanes will initially be available only on direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore as well as land crossings between the state of Johor and Singapore.
Malindo Air’s inaugural VTL flight OD803 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore departs on 29th November at 9.25 am, with the first OD804 flight returning from Singapore, at 11.30 am. These VTL flights are now available for booking. The flights will be operated by fully vaccinated pilots and cabin crew.
Kuala Lumpur-Singapore VTL flight schedule:
|Singapore Changi (T3)||Singapore Changi (T3)||Singapore Changi (T3)||Singapore Changi (T3)||Singapore Changi (T3)||Singapore Changi (T3)|
|OD 804||Daily||Singapore Changi (T3)||Kuala Lumpur (KLIA)||11:30am||12:35am|
Designated VTL flights will be clearly identified so you can tell the difference between a VTL flight and normal scheduled flights. However, there are a number of conditions you must meet, to be eligible to travel on a VTL service.
Eligible travellers are:
- persons of all nationalities in Malaysia or Singapore
- all purposes of travel
- Completed a full regimen of a COVID-19 vaccine
- i.e. the required number of dose(s) to provide full vaccine protection
- recognised by the competent authority of the country they are entering.
Children aged 12 years and below will qualify for travel under the VTL without the need to show proof of vaccination. However, the child must be accompanied by a VTL traveller who meets all the VTL requirements.
Travellers under the VTL scheme may enter Singapore and Malaysia without quarantine and only need to undergo Covid-19 testing.
Travellers must also purchase travel insurance, with a minimum coverage of S$30,000 for Covid-19-related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs, before their trip to Singapore. Coverage of RM100,000 is required for travellers into Malaysia. Returning citizens and others with resident status are exempt from this requirement.
