Singapore – Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB)

ATB: Flights

The Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble has been postponed, what will happen to my flight?

 


All Singapore Airlines flights between Singapore and Hong Kong (SQ890 and SQ891) from 1 Dec to 31 Dec both dates inclusive) will operate as non-ATB flights due to the postponement of the Air Travel Bubble.


Customers will need to ensure that they meet the entry requirements and adhere to quarantine measures upon arrival in both cities. 
   
Customers with existing bookings may either rebook their flights with no rebooking fees or request a full refund of the unutilised portion(s) of their tickets, with cancellation fees waived. The refund will be processed according to the original mode of payment. Those who booked directly with Singapore Airlines may request for the refund via our Assistance Request form

If you booked via a travel agent, please contact them for assistance. Please note that travel agents may charge fees based on the terms and conditions of your booking. 

Is there a possibility that the Air Travel Bubble arrangement may be suspended?

 

Air Travel Bubble (ATB) arrangements may be suspended by the respective governments if the domestic Covid-19 situation in either Singapore or Hong Kong deteriorates. Singapore Airlines will adhere to the guidance of the regulators in this situation, and customers will be informed of any changes should they occur. 

Where customers' flights are not cancelled but reverted to a non-Air Travel Bubble flight, affected passengers may either rebook their flights with no rebooking fees or request for a refund of the unutilised portion(s) of their tickets, with cancellation fees waived. The refund will be processed to the customers' original mode of payment for unutilised portion(s) of their tickets (including non-refundable tickets), with waiver of cancellation fees.

Those who booked directly with Singapore Airlines may either rebook their flights or request for the refund via our Assistance Request form. If you booked via a travel agent, please contact them for assistance. Please note that travel agents may charge fees based on the terms and conditions of your booking.

Is a one-way itinerary allowed for Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flights? Is it possible to book a non-ATB flight out and an ATB flight back or vice versa?

 
Yes, one-way itineraries are allowed, as long as travellers are eligible to travel on an Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flight. Please refer here for more information on the ATB requirements. Please note that passengers travelling on non-ATB flights will have to meet the necessary entry requirements and abide by existing quarantine measures.

For example, a Singapore citizen departing for Hong Kong on an Air Travel Bubble flight but returning on a non-Air Travel Bubble flight will have to serve a 7-day Stay Home Notice at his/her place of residence upon return to Singapore as well as undergo a Covid-19 test before the end of the 7-day SHN.

What if I choose to travel to Macau or China whilst in Hong Kong, can I return on an Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flight?

 
Travellers can return to Singapore on an ATB flight, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria for ATB flights, one of which requires travellers to have remained in Hong Kong for 14 consecutive days prior to departure. For more information on ATB eligibility, please refer here.

If my Air Travel Bubble (ATB) flight is cancelled, will I be covered under your global travel waiver policy?

 

Yes, if your Air Travel Bubble flight is cancelled by Singapore Airlines, you will be covered by our global travel waiver policy and may choose to either retain the unused value of your ticket as flight credits or rebook for travel up to 31 December 2021 . Should you choose to rebook, any rebooking fees will be waived. 

Alternately, you can request for a refund of the unutilised portion(s) of your tickets, with cancellation fees waived. The refund will be processed according to the original mode of payment. Those who booked directly with Singapore Airlines may use our Assistance Request form to submit their request.

Global Travel Waiver Policy (GWP)

GWP: General Policy

What are flight credits?

 
Singapore Airlines has introduced flight credits to give customers a peace of mind during these uncertain times and greater flexibility in their booking options in the future.

Customers who meet our travel waiver policy criteria can cancel their existing flight bookings using our assistance request form, and retain the full value of the unused fare and taxes portion of their tickets as flight credits. Once they have decided on their new travel plans, customers may use the flight credits to book their new flight itineraries, which must be completed by 31 December 2021.

What are bonus flight credits?

 

Bonus flight credits are awarded to eligible customers who choose to retain their tickets as flight credits. This is our way of thanking them for their support during this challenging period. Customers will receive bonus flight credits based on the cabin class that they were originally booked on.


This applies to all tickets purchased either directly from Singapore Airlines or via travel agents, except where tickets were purchased with KrisFlyer miles or HighFlyer points, on a child or infant fare, or where tickets are partially flown.

If my tickets were purchased though a travel agent, am I eligible for the bonus flight credits option and the refund option?

 
Yes, this policy also applies to tickets purchased through our travel agents, subject to our terms and conditions. Do note that travel agents may charge fees, depending on the terms and conditions of your booking with the agency.

Travel agents who require assistance or have queries on the waiver policy may contact their local Singapore Airlines sales office directly. Customers who are unable to contact their travel agents may reach out to their local reservation offices.

If my tickets were purchased through a travel agent, must I rebook with the same agent?

 

For tickets purchased through a travel agency, please contact your agent for assistance to cancel your existing bookings and retain the unused value of your tickets as flight credits.

Once you are ready to travel, simply contact the same travel agent who will be able to assist you by using the flight credits to offset your new flight itinerary. You will also receive bonus flight credits if your ticket is eligible.

Any rebooking fees payable to Singapore Airlines will be waived. Do note that travel agents may charge fees, depending on the terms and conditions of your booking with the agency.

When will my flight credits expire?

 

All flight credits must be utilised, and the new travel itinerary must be completed by 31 December 2021.

Can I extend my travel beyond 31 December 2021?

 

No. Flight credits can only be used for travel up to 31 December 2021, unless otherwise extended by Singapore Airlines.

If the Covid-19 situation persists, will SIA consider extending the validity of the flight credits?

 

We will continue to review and update our travel waiver policy.

Where can I get the latest information on flight schedules ?

I have flown partially on my ticket. What can I do?

 
If you no longer require the unused portion of your ticket, you can opt for a full refund of the unused portion of your ticket, with waiver of cancellation fees.

If you still wish to travel on the unused sectors of your ticket at a later date, you may choose to convert the unused portion of your ticket to flight credits for future bookings. Please note that bonus flight credits will not be applicable for partially flown tickets.

How would I know if these ancillary charges have been refunded to me?

 
We seek your understanding that the processing time for ancillaries will vary depending on the type of refunds.

Stand-alone refunds of ancillaries will have a shorter processing time.

Processing time for the refunds of tickets, including those with any ancillaries associated with the booking, will take longer. Any ancillaries will be refunded at the same time as the ticket.

If you booked directly with Singapore Airlines, you will receive an email notification once your refund request has been processed. It will may then take up to 6 weeks for the amount to be credited back to your original mode of payment, subject to your bank’s processing time.

If you have not completed any sectors in your booking, you may check the amount of flight credits you have by visiting Manage Booking . Tick the “Check flight credit balance” box and enter your booking reference and family name to view your available credits.

 

If you have purchased any add ons with your ticket or hold a partially used ticket, please submit your enquiry using the “Other Covid-19 related assistance” option on our Assistance Request Form.

I booked my trip with several other travel companions. How are flight credits and bonus flight credits allocated among us?

 

When a booking is made for multiple customers, each customer receives a ticket in his or her name.

Under this policy, flight credits equivalent to the full unused fare and taxes of each ticket will be allocated to the customer whose name is on the ticket. The customer can then choose between bonus flight credits or opt for a refund. Only customers who select the bonus flight credits option will be awarded the bonus credits.

How can I use my flight credits and bonus flight credits?

 

Once you are ready to book your new travel, you can use your flight credits and bonus flight credits to offset the cost of your rebooked itinerary. You can choose to book itineraries for your preferred destination on your preferred cabin class and on any travel date as long as the trip is completed by 31 December 2021. If the cost of the new itinerary exceeds the total value of your flight credits, a top-up will be required. If the cost is lower, any remaining flight credits can be used for a second trip.

 

When you’re ready to rebook, submit a request via our Covid-19 Assistance Request Form and choose the “Change or rebook your flight” option. All rebooking fees will be waived.

Can my flight credits be split and used to purchase multiple bookings?

 

No. Flight credits may not be split to purchase multiple bookings. The credits must first be used to completely offset the purchase of one booking, before any remaining credits can be used to offset the purchase of a second booking.

Why is the offset of my flight credits capped at two ticket purchases? What if I have leftover flight credits after purchasing two tickets?

 

We regret that any remaining flight credits will be forfeited. Please contact us if you need more assistance.

How far in advance will I be notified if my flight is cancelled?

 

Flight cancellations can happen any time before departure. However, we strive to inform affected passengers as soon as possible.

If your original flight is cancelled by Singapore Airlines or SilkAir, and you have yet to fly any sector, you may choose to retain the unused value of your ticket as flight credits, which can be used to rebook itineraries for travel up to 31 December 2021. Any rebooking fees will be waived. You may also be eligible for bonus flight credits.

For partially flown tickets, the value of the unused portion of your ticket will be retained as flight credits. You will not, however, be eligible for bonus flight credits.

This also applies if your flight was cancelled, and you chose to cancel your re-accommodated flight.

If my flight is cancelled, do I need to immediately use the flight and bonus credits allocated?

 

Customers do not need to immediately decide on an alternative travel date, flight or destination upon the cancellation of the original booking. The unused value of the ticket will be retained as flight credits for future use.

Singapore Airlines will waive all rebooking fees when customers are ready to rebook and use their flight credits to offset their new trip. Eligible customers will also receive bonus flight credits upon rebooking.

If my flight was cancelled can I get a refund?

 
Yes, if your Singapore Airlines or SilkAir flight was cancelled due to Covid-19, you will be covered by our global travel wavier policy ,and you may opt for a refund. Cancellation fees will be waived. Any bonus flight credits awarded post-cancellation will not be part of the refund.

I redeemed an upgrade with miles, and my flight was cancelled by Singapore Airlines, will I get my miles refunded?

 
Yes. You may choose to either:

1. Request a refund of the miles used for your upgrade through KrisFlyer Membership Services but retain your original ticket value in the form of flight credits. If you have not utilised your ticket for any travel, you will be eligible for bonus flight credits between SGD75 and SGD200 on your pre-upgraded class of travel upon rebooking, should you choose this option.

2. Request a full refund of both your original ticket and miles used for your upgrade through KrisFlyer Membership Services. The miles utilised for your redemption upgrade will be returned to your account balance with miles extended where applicable, while the unused value of your ticket is refunded to your original mode of payment. 

Should you have already submitted a request through the Covid-19 Assistance Request form, or have a request processed for such tickets, please contact KrisFlyer Membership Services for the refund of miles used to redeem for flight upgrades.
