Travel lovers may soon be able to scratch that itch under the Singapore-Hong Kong travel bubble in late November.
Secretary for commerce and economic development Edward Yau on Sunday (Nov 1) expressed optimism that people will be able to start flying between Hong Kong and Singapore by the end of the month, as the governments finalize details of the travel bubble that was announced in mid-October.
Speaking to reporters after a TV interview, Mr Yau said travel agencies would likely start selling tickets from mid-November.
It is expected that there will be at least one designated flight between the two cities every day during the initial phase of the travel bubble.
More flights could be scheduled if the arrangement proves popular, Mr Yau said, adding that there are measures in place to suspend the travel bubble if the Covid-19 situation in either city worsens.
Separately, Hong Kong officials are still in the midst of talks with their Guangdong counterparts over a delayed plan to reopen borders with the mainland.
