Indigo has announced that it will operate Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights on Chennai-Singapore route. The announcement comes after Singapore reached an agreement with India’s Ministry of Civil Aviation on the resumption of scheduled commercial passenger flights and India announced an air bubble agreement with Singapore.
The airline, in a press release, said that it will operate flights on Chennai-Singapore route with a total of 3,618 seats per week under the Vaccinated Travel Lane. Out of the 3,618 seats per week allotted to Indigo, 1,624 seats will be operated on the Chennai – Singapore route under VTL and the rest of the capacity will be utilised under non-VTL conditions for travel to and from Singapore.
Applications for vaccinated travel passes for short-term visitors and long-term pass holders from India will start on 29th November 2021.

Ronojoy Dutta, CEO, Indigo, said:
As we eventually come out of the pandemic, we are happy to resume flights to Singapore under the air bubble agreement. International connectivity under air bubble arrangement has been helpful in slowly bringing back the international travel demand. The situation is improving rapidly, and we are hopeful that this will further help citizens of India and Singapore to travel with ease for various purposes.
Passengers travelling on VTL flights to Singapore will not be required to quarantine on arrival. However, passengers travelling on a VTL flight entering Singapore will be required two COVID-19 tests – one within two days of flight departure and one on-arrival at Singapore’s Changi airport.
