Travelers may gradually pass Changi Airport from June 2 when the circuit breaker is raised.
According to the Singapore Civil Aviation Authority (CAAS), this is part of Singapore's strategy to gradually reopen aviation.
The health ministry also said yesterday (May 19) that Singapore is beginning to explore the possibility of making limited travel essential trips between countries with low Covid-19 transfer rates.
Short-term visitors have not been allowed to enter or cross Singapore since March 23.
Currently, only foreign passengers returning to their home country as part of their governmental agreements are allowed to travel through.
Changi Airport has also greatly reduced its service in the face of the decline in air traffic due to Covid-19. Operations in Terminal 2 ceased on May 1 and Terminal 4 on May 16.
With the resumption of transit, strict measures are taken to ensure the safety of passengers and airport personnel.
Passengers are divided into dedicated facilities and airport personnel must wear personal protective equipment when interacting with them.
Existing measures such as a safe distance, wearing masks and temperature control will be continued.
The airlines can submit their proposals for transfer railways, which should take flight safety and the health of passengers and flight crew into account.
