After a few weeks of downtime, various countries around the world are slowly (but surely) opening up its borders again. Whether it's the Indonesian paradise of Bali or popular European destinations such as Italy and Portugal, travellers can expect to be able to jet off for a getaway before the year ends. Granted, there are still very strict travel restrictions to adhere to in Singapore, even after entering Phase 2. But with various airlines resuming flights from Changi Airport, your next getaway might be closer than you think. We've rounded up a few airlines that are resuming flights out of Singapore in June and July, so you can start bookmarking them.

Singapore Airlines & SilkAir

Local carriers Singapore Airlines and SilkAir are resuming routes to several destinations in June and July, and increasing the number of flights for some of its other services. 

The resumed scheduled services include flights to Amsterdam, Barcelona, Christchurch, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Osaka – of course, subjected to regulatory approvals and changes. But there is some hope that soon, you'll be able to go on a road trip around New Zealand or embark on a food hunt in Osaka again.

Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways is gradually resuming its flights to Bangkok, Barcelona, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, Vienna and Singapore this week. This grows the airline's global network to over 170 weekly flights to more than 40 destinations. The Singapore route started from June 2 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, departing Singapore at 2.15 am.

To ensure travellers' peace of mind when travelling, the airline has extended its booking policies – allowing unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need within 5,000 miles of the original destination. No fare differences will be charged for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules apply. All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issuance.

Scoot is still operating a reduced schedule of services in June to selected destinations, namely Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Ipoh, Kuching, Penang, Perth. However, do note that there'll be added restrictions, such as carry-on baggage that doesn't weigh more than 3kg, no advanced seat selection, and a suspension of pre-flight selections and suspended inflight duty-free sales. All passengers will also have to submit health declaration forms before check-in.

Lufthansa Group airlines will be significantly expanding its flight schedule until September. By September, it is expected that 90 per cent of all originally planned short- and medium-haul destinations and 70 per cent of long-haul destinations will be served again. 

Lufthansa alone is expected to fly around 90 flights a week to Asia, with routes to destinations such as Hong Kong and Singapore. Further details will be announced at a later date. 


Emirates has resumed flights for passengers from Singapore, with flights between Dubai and Singapore from June 17, a day which also marked Emirates' 30th anniversary of operations in Singapore. This follows the UAE Federal Government's announcement to lift restrictions on transit passenger services.

The service will run three times a week on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Additionally, Emirates will add flights to Singapore and the following cities in July: London Heathrow, Manchester, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Dublin, New York JFK, Toronto, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.
