Singapore Airlines confirms Singapore-Melbourne

by on October 24, 2021
 

Singapore Airlines has confirmed Singapore-Melbourne flights are back with the reopening of borders as vaccination rates rise in Victoria. While flights until the scheduled date are available, most are codeshare arrangements with Virgin Australia via a second Australian city and loads may be capped due to quarantine quotas. These are set to be scrapped with the border opening. You can check the flight schedule to find your preferred date, with sales already open.

Singapore-Melbourne flight conditions

The Victorian international border will, however only be open to certain eligible groups of travellers. These include fully-vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents and eligible non-citizens from 1st November 2021. Eligible non-citizens may include parents and other close relatives of citizens and permanent residents.

Bookings on the 14 weekly Singapore-Melbourne and Melbourne-Singapore route are available now, via various sales channels including the Singapore Airlines website for eligible customers on flights tagged as “For Eligible Passengers Only” (FEPO).

Eligibility to travel on these services is determined by the Australian Government and must at least meet the following criteria:

Or

  • Be an immediate family member of an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or
  • Is a non-Australian citizen or permanent resident, and
  • Holds a valid visa and a travel restriction exemption, and
  • Is fully-vaccinated with a TGA approved or recognised vaccine, and
  • Has a vaccine certificate that meets the Australian Government’s authenticity and verification requirements.

You can also check your eligibility to travel to Australia uncapped on these flights via this  dedicated page.

Singapore Airlines assures customers holding existing bookings for flights to Melbourne from 1st November 2021 that they will assist with confirming eligibility to travel on the new FEPO flights or support rebooking to a capped service.
