Chocks away: Scoot to fly to Singapore thrice this month
A one-way flight will cost HK$ 968; international air travel gradually opens up in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Scoot, the Singaporean budget airline, will operate three return flights between Macao and Singapore later this month, providing a much-needed air link for stranded travellers.
According to this month’s schedules, the carrier will fly from Singapore to Macao and Macao to Singapore on 20, 24 and 27 April.
The flights, priced at HK$ 968 per head, are scheduled to depart from the city at 5:55 pm and will land in Singapore at 9:55 pm, the Macau Daily Times reported.
Singapore has lifted border restrictions with Australia, Brunei, mainland China, New Zealand and Taiwan. According to the Changi Airport Group, passengers from these destinations can proceed on their own to the Departure Transit Area to wait for their next flight.
Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, has stated that the airline “continues to resume services and restore its network in the coming months in a safe and calibrated manner.”
“This is partly driven by moves to ease restrictions on both transit and inbound passengers in a safe and gradual manner, helping to support an increase in travel demand. Capacity increases are also underpinned by continued strong demand for air cargo around the world, with freight space remaining constrained compared to pre-Covid-19 levels.”
