Covid-19 Travel Information
Travel Waiver Policy
Many of your travel plans have been affected by widespread travel restrictions around the world. We are offering you the flexibility to:
• Retain the value of your ticket and extend its validity
• Rebook at a later date once you have decided on your travel plans
• Waive rebooking fees
The travel waiver is applicable to customers holding tickets issued on or before 15 March 2020 with travel dates up to 31 May 2020. Customers should also note the following:
• New itinerary must be completed by 31 March 2021
• A fare difference may apply for the new itinerary
To convert your booking to an open ticket or if you are ready to submit a rebooking request on your new travel dates, please do so via our online form.
We will continue to review our waiver policy and retain the flexibility to extend the cut-off date of 31 May 2020 as we assess the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on global air travel.

Safeguarding Customers and Crew
The wellbeing of our customers and crew is a priority for Singapore Airlines. We have implemented precautionary measures on board our aircraft and on the ground due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Cabin Environment And Aircraft Cleaning
Our aircraft are equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters, which effectively filter more than 99.99% of airborne microbes and have a similar performance to those used in hospital operating rooms. Cabin air circulation is continuous and the air is refreshed every 2-3 minutes (or 20-30 times hourly). All of this provides a safer and more comfortable environment for passengers.
Every aircraft is thoroughly cleaned prior to departure. Surfaces including windows, tray tables, handsets, and in-flight entertainment screens, as well as common areas such as lavatories and galleys, are wiped with a strong disinfectant. Headsets, headrest covers, pillow covers, bedsheets, and blankets are also changed after every flight sector.
If there is a confirmed Covid-19 case on a flight, the aircraft will undergo a more rigorous deep cleaning procedure that takes five times longer than the regular process. As part of this enhanced process, aircraft cabins are also fogged with a disinfectant.
Our Cabin Crew And Pilots
Our cabin crew and pilots know that if they are unwell, they should see a doctor immediately and not report for work. Temperature screening is carried out for our cabin crew and pilots before all flights.
To minimise the risks for customers and staff, all cabin crew are required to wear masks on board and are provided with gloves.
