India-Singapore flights commence under vaccinated travel lane
Flight services between India and Singapore under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) commenced on Monday even as Singapore deferred similar travel arrangements with some countries amid the 'Omicron' scare.
Vistara and IndiGo said they have started operating flights to Singapore, while there was no comment from Air India. VTL allows quarantine-free travel to Singapore for fully vaccinated travellers.
"There is no change as of now in terms of our Singapore operations - our first flight went at 1:50 am today," a Vistara spokesperson said.
While there is no change as of now, the spokesperson said the situation is being reviewed and a decision will be taken accordingly.
"We can confirm that we are operating our flight on Chennai-Singapore as per schedule," an IndiGo spokesperson said.
Last week, Singapore Airlines also announced that flights to and from India will resume from November 29. There was no immediate comment from the airline on Monday regarding the services.
