Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble Details Announced

The details of the much anticipated Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB) have been announced. Note that passengers travelling under the ATB arrangement will not have to undergo quarantine, but will still need to be tested both before and after your trip.

For now, the ATB arrangements will run from 22 Nov 2020 to 31 Dec 2020. Both Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific will be plying flights between both cities that are dedicated to ATB travellers. Both carriers will also be deploying the A350-900 aircraft under the ATB arrangement.

From 22 Nov 2020 to 4 Dec 2020, Singapore Airlines will operate four weekly flights while Cathay Pacific will operate three weekly flights.

From 7 Dec 2020 to the end of the year, both carriers will be operating daily flights between the two cities.

The flights identified strictly for the ATB arrangement are SQ890 and CX734 from Singapore to Hong Kong, while the return flights are SQ891 and CX759. These flights will only carry ATB passengers and will not be able to accommodate non-ATB (e.g. transit) passengers. In light of the launch of the ATB, Singapore Airlines will reaccommodate non-ATB passengers previously booked on SQ890/891 onto other alternative flights. For now, Scoot operates daily non-ATB flights between Singapore and Hong Kong.
