Travelers looking to visit Beijing can soon do so via a Singapore Airlines (SIA) flight from Friday.

It will be the first time a passenger flight is heading to the Chinese capital from Singapore since the pandemic disrupted travel in 2020.

After close to three years, the national carrier is reinstating its Singapore-to-Beijing passenger service on Fridays, on a fortnightly basis. This comes three months after SIA reinstated flights from Beijing to Singapore on Sept 27. These flights operate every Tuesday and Friday.

Flight services between Singapore and Beijing were suspended on March 28, 2020, at the height of the pandemic.

Checks by The Straits Times on Monday showed that an economy ticket from Singapore to Beijing this Friday with the return flight next Tuesday costs S$4,053.

A ticket for a round trip that leaves for Beijing this Friday and returns to Singapore on Jan 10 costs S$ 2,789.

SIA also operates flights to and from Shanghai on Mondays and Saturdays.
