Revealed: Singapore – Hong Kong ‘Air Travel Bubble’ flight schedule

The Singapore - Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble will launch on 22nd November.

Here's a list of all the designated flights you can book between the two cities, including for leisure trips.

Earlier this month the governments of Hong Kong SAR and Singapore announced the region’s first leisure ‘travel bubble’ since border closures due to COVID-19, with quarantine-free trips between the two cities for any purpose set to be approved in late 2020.

Those travelling between the two cities will have to be negative for COVID-19, with a mutually recognised PCR test conducted pre-departure. Unlike the reciprocal ‘green lane’ or ‘fast lane’ arrangements already in place between Singapore and other countries, trips on the Air Travel Bubble (ATB) can be for any purpose, including leisure, and a controlled itinerary is not necessary.

Yesterday we summarised what we knew so far about the arrangements, but now we now have some additional details of the process involved, but crucially the all-important flight schedule for those making quarantine-free trips to and from Hong Kong under this new arrangement.

  Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flights

The following services have been confirmed as designated ATB flights for those travelling between Singapore and Hong Kong, effective from 22nd November 2020 to 31st December 2020.

The inaugural flight will by SQ890 from Singapore to Hong Kong on Sunday 22nd November 2020, with the first Hong Kong – Singapore ATB flight departing the following day on Monday 23rd November 2020 as SQ891.

Cathay Pacific services on the ATB from Hong Kong to Singapore will also commence on Sunday 22nd November 2020, with the carrier operating its first Singapore – Hong Kong travel bubble flights from Tuesday 24th November 2020.

Initially one flight per day in each direction will be operated, increasing to two flights per day from 7th December 2020.

You can book a return flight with the same airline in both directions (e.g. Singapore Airlines both ways) or you can mix between carriers in each direction (e.g. Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong then SIA back to Singapore).

Provided both flights you are booked on are designated ATB flights, you will be able to follow the ‘travel bubble’ procedures and avoid any quarantine period at either end of your journey.
