Transiting in Singapore
Last updated 03 December 2021, 23:00hrs (GMT +8)
We are excited to welcome transit passengers back to Singapore Changi Airport. Most transit passengers can now travel freely within the central transit area, where they can enjoy a variety of shops and dining options while waiting for their next flight.
Please note there are certain requirements transit passengers must meet, including a transit time in Singapore not exceeding 48 hours.
Where can I find information about the regions and countries Singapore Airlines operates to, as well as the flight schedules?
For flights that require a transfer through Singapore, can I purchase the tickets via a travel agent or other means, or do I have to book directly with Singapore Airlines?
Customers may purchase their tickets either directly from Singapore Airlines or via travel agents and other sales channels.
Will premium passengers transiting through Singapore be able to access the SilverKris Lounge (Business Class) at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3?
Yes, all eligible passengers from Category I, II, and III countries transiting through Singapore will be able to access the SilverKris Lounge. Only passengers whose travel originates from a Category IV country will not be able to access the lounge, as they will requested to remain in a Transiting Holding Area.
Are there safe distancing measures on board?
Passengers are required to practise safe distancing when embarking and disembarking from an aircraft, as well as when queueing for the lavatory. They are also required to wear a mask throughout the flight in line with regulatory requirements. To find out more, please click here.
I am transiting through Singapore to another destination where I will be catching a connecting flight on another airline to my final destination (e.g. Sydney – Singapore – Frankfurt on Singapore Airlines, and Frankfurt – Zurich on another carrier). Is that allowed?
Yes. However, customers are reminded to ensure that they meet all requirements of their flight itinerary, which may include both transit and entry requirements to their final destination. In addition, they may be asked to show their onward ticket(s) when checking in at their original point of departure. Customers who do not meet these requirements or are unable to show their onward ticket(s) when asked will be denied boarding.
As entry requirements may change at short notice, customers are advised to check the latest travel advisory issued by the relevant local authorities before their trip.
