Singapore Airlines is committed to resuming service following the epidemic, saying that full London services will resume in June.

The airline currently has two flights to London, with a third scheduled to begin on April 1.

In June, Singapore Airlines will offer four daily flights to London, using Boeing 777-300ER, A380, and A350 aircraft. Meanwhile, Loganair, a British small airline, has signed an interline arrangement with Singapore Airlines, allowing its customers to travel internationally from London and Manchester on a single ticket.

The new deal also benefits travelers from Aberdeen, Inverness, the Isle of Man, and Teesside, United Kingdom.

“Singapore Airlines is delighted to announce its new interline partnership with Loganair, giving our passengers greater connectivity and flexibility with their travel options.” Mohamed Rafi Mar, Singapore Airlines’ U.K. & Ireland General Manager said in a statement.

In addition, Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) program has been expanded to eight Indian cities. Travelers can visit Singapore without being quarantined under the VTL scheme. The move has been applauded by Singapore Airlines.

Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines will bring the superjumbo back to India, announcing that the A380 would begin service between Singapore and Mumbai on March 14 and Singapore and Delhi in the coming months.

Singapore Airlines has also stated that it will improve its service to Australia by resuming flights to Cairns and Darwin on March 28 and 29, respectively.

On these new routes, the carrier will use the Boeing 737. Following the addition of the additional routes, the airline now offers approximately 100 weekly flights to Australia from Singapore.

Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines will begin service between Penang, Malaysia, and Denpasar, Indonesia, following the announcement that the two cities are qualified for the VTL program. Additionally, beginning March 16, passengers from Greece and Vietnam will be exempt from quarantine.

Due to a shortage of domestic traffic, Singapore Airlines has had more than its fair share of troubles after two years of the pandemic. Singapore has adopted a “living in covid” strategy, implying that the airline will be able to recover rapidly during the pandemic.

Despite the fact that the country records almost 10,000 incidents per day, the government is considering eliminating the VTL program.

“Instead of having vaccinated travel lanes with selected countries that we think are low risk, we should actually (quarantine-free) travel for vaccinated travelers or fully-vaccinated travelers, from all countries.” Ye Kung Ong, Health Minister of Singapore said.

However, Ong did not provide any additional information or a date for the elimination of VTL. The VTL program currently accepts passengers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries.
