Flights between Singapore and Hong Kong will be open starting May 26. Singapore’s transport minister Ong Ye Kung said that Hong Kong was successful in controlling the COVID-19 situation, resulting in the possibility of safe travels between the two cities. Each city will process one flight with a maximum number of 200 passengers a day for the first two weeks. Passengers leaving Hong Kong need to be vaccinated and travelers from the two cities must take a COVID-19 test three days before departure and again upon arrival. Singapore and Hong Kong want to restart their tourism departments that are highly dependent on tourists. Hong Kong’s Commerce and Economic Development Secretary Edward Yau said, “Our goal remains striking a right balance between public health and travel convenience so that the public will feel assured while providing certainty.”
