Confirmed: All Singapore – Malaysia VTL flights till October 2022

All six airlines operating designated quarantine-free flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and back have now finalised their VTL schedules through to the end of October.

Here's what you need to book.

One of the most popular of Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs), not surprisingly, is the quarantine-free link between Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur Airport, with six airlines currently operating 42 weekly designated flights on the route.

For now this is the only air link between Singapore and Malaysia with no quarantine required at either end, but it’s also one of the more complicated VTL arrangements.

That’s because there are designated VTL flights in both directions, due to the bilateral nature of the scheme, the only VTL where this currently applies.

Which airlines are operating?

Six airlines are currently operating 42 weekly flights between Singapore Changi Airport and Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

VTL schedule to 29th October 2022

Initially the Vaccinated Travel Lane was due to run until the end of the IATA winter timetable season on 26th March 2022, however most airlines (16 out of 27 at our last count) have now revealed their VTL flight schedules right through to the end of the summer season on 29th October 2022, following an extension of the scheme.

The good news is that all six carriers operating on the busy Singapore – KL city pair have now locked in their schedules for VTL flights, so here’s what you’ll need to book for the next eight months to be sure of a quarantine-free journey.

Note that Malaysia Airlines has yet to update its VTL flights page with the schedule through to 29th October 2022, however we confirmed with the airline that its services are continuing and are appropriately identified in the booking engine.

“Kindly note that as long as the flight number is MH603 and MH606, it will be Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flight till 29 October 2022. Furthermore, you will be able to see Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) blue banner on top of the flight booking page during booking.”

Here’s how the current schedule and the newly extended schedule of VTL flights looks for all six carriers.

VTL in both directions

The important thing to note is that this currently represents the only bilateral Vaccinated Travel Lane where you must take a designated VTL flight from Singapore as well as when returning to Singapore (or vice-versa for those starting their trip in KL), to enjoy quarantine-free arrival status as part of the scheme.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you only need a VTL flight back to Singapore!
