December 1, 2020 - In view of the recent developments of the COVID-19 epidemic in Hong Kong, the Governments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and Singapore have decided to defer the commencement of the Hong Kong-Singapore Air Travel Bubble (ATB) to beyond 2020 and will review the arrangement for 2021 towards late December.

A spokesman for the HKSAR Government said today that subsequent to the deferral announcement on November 21, the two Governments have been closely monitoring the epidemic situation in both places.  The decision on a further deferral of the launch date of the ATB was taken in view of the severity of the epidemic situation in Hong Kong with the number of local cases of unknown sources increasing rapidly.    

Travelers who have already made bookings on designated flights during December 2020 may wish to contact their airlines and adjust the itineraries according to their own circumstances.

For details of the ATB, please refer to the designated website: www.tourism.gov.hk/travelbubble.
