In a recent update (August 18), customers from select cities in Asia, Europe, and Australia can transit to any destination operated by Singapore Airlines and its subsidiaries (Silkair and Scoot) through Singapore. 

Among the destinations covered will include cities in Southeast Asia including Bangkok-Suvarnabhumi, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, and Phenom Penh.

For North Asia, the list includes Seoul-Incheon, Tokyo-Narita, Hong Kong, and Taipei.

Other destinations include London-Heathrow, Amsterdam, Sydney, Paris, Frankfurt, and Auckland.

Transit Policy/Standards

Along with the list of destinations approved for transit travel, the airline detailed its guidelines for travelers from eligible cities and booking travel involving connections. 

Customers will be able to book return trips if both the origin and destination are approved transit destinations. All flights must be on Singapore Airlines group operated flights on the same itinerary.

Round-trip bookings with transfers will not be available if the destination is not on the approved listing or the final destination is in mainland China. Except trips to China, other routes can be booked as one-way trips.

During the transit in Singapore, travelers with a connection time of less than 75 minutes will be directed to proceed to the gate of their next flight. For longer layovers (no more than 48 hours), travelers will stay in a designated zone separated at the departure terminal.
