Singapore mulls over launch of air travel bubble with Hong Kong

The minister said that Singapore is very happy that Hong Kong has in recent weeks kept the pandemic under good control.

Singapore's Minister for Transport Ong Ye Kung said Monday that the city-state has received a proposal from China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) to re-open borders safely, saying it is studying the situation.

According to a press release in response to comments from the HKSAR on the Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB), the minister said that Singapore is very happy that Hong Kong has in recent weeks kept the pandemic under good control.

"This is a very positive development," he added.

Singapore and Hong Kong agreed to launch designated flights under the ATB in November 2020 in an effort to resume cross-border travel and orderly restart economic activities. But the launch of the ATB was later deferred due to worsened epidemic situation in Hong Kong.
