Singapore-Hong Kong Travel Bubble To Be Delayed Until Next Year

Not such great news.

A travel-bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong has been the centre of discussion, as some form of travel looks to return amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Officials were hopeful of this arriving before the end of 2020. However, it looks like we’ll have to wait a little while longer.

The travel bubble looks to have been delayed until 2021, following a rising number of Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) confirmed in a statement (December 1) that both cities reached a decision to put the plans for a bubble on hold for at least a month. The number of local unlinked cases in Hong Kong was cited as a factor.

CASS said: “Passengers are advised to contact their airlines regarding their travel plans. The Singapore and Hong Kong authorities have been in close discussion and will update when there are further developments.

An exact date for the planned travel bubble in 2021 has not been given, but is expected to follow the announcement soon.
