Earlier this month Singapore Airlines was granted approval to start flying transit passengers through Changi Airport under a special arrangement overseen by the Civil Aviation Authority. Initially this was permitted on a one-way basis for those originating in one of the airline’s current Australia and New Zealand destinations.

Good news is that passengers flying on Singapore Airlines, SilkAir or Scoot originating in the following countries are now also eligible to transit through Changi with immediate effect:
- China (incl. Hong Kong SAR, Taiwan)
- South Korea
That opens up itineraries from the following ten cities to transit through Changi on an SIA group booking:
