IHGMA.com – Travellers from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand will now be able to transit through Singapore in the latest round of approvals for the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group.

Transit passengers from two other South-east Asian countries – Vietnam and Cambodia – were allowed to transit through Singapore on SIA Group’s airlines last week.

As published by TheStraitsTimes Tuesday 18/8/2020,  at The five countries are the first from the region whose passengers the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore has allowed to transit here after border restrictions were slightly eased on June 2. Transit passenger traffic to Singapore had stopped in late March after the Government announced a ban on short-term visitors to reduce the risk of importing Covid-19 cases.
