Singapore and Hong Kong to open travel bubble

Singapore and Hong Kong have agreed to start quarantine-free travel between the two cities from 26 May.

The long delayed travel bubble was first slated to begin in November, but was suspended after a sudden spike of Covid infections in Hong Kong.

If it goes ahead, this travel bubble will be the second major air route in the region to open after Australia and New Zealand resumed flights last week.

It is expected to provide a boost to the tourism sectors of both cities.

“I am happy that Hong Kong got the Covid-19 situation under control. It has been a long few months, but the conditions are now ripe again to re-launch the ATB (Air Travel Bubble)” , Mr Ong Ye Kung, Singapore’s Minister for Transport said in an emailed statement.
