Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Responding to the recent announcement by the Singapore Government selectively relaxing restrictions on inbound travellers, the Director General of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines, Mr. Subhas Menon said, “Singapore’s unilateral opening of its borders to travellers from Brunei and New Zealand is a very important step in the right direction. Cross border travel has been stalled ever since March 2020 in the Asia Pacific region. The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines applauds the Singapore Government’s efforts to restart air travel in a safe yet progressive way. Adopting a testing regime without onerous quarantine requirements sets a standard worth emulating in facilitating air travel and economic recovery in the region. Asia Pacific airlines are committed to working closely with governments across the region to explore further initiatives to reopen international air travel corridors, based on objective risk assessments in conjunction with the relevant public health authorities.”
