Indigo only operates VTL flights from Chennai to Singapore with the following schedule:

Departure time from Chennai: 21:50
Arrival time in Singapore: 04:30 (the next day)

If you have any further queries about VTL flights operated by any other airline, do let me know. Singapore Airlines and Scoot are also operating VTL flights. However, Singapore Airlines has stopped accepting new bookings for all Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights into Singapore that are scheduled between 23 December 2021 and 20 January 2022 (both dates inclusive).
