Singapore Airlines is among the first airlines in the world to operate flights with a fully-vaccinated onboard crew of pilots and flight attendants.

The other carriers in the Singapore Airlines Group, SilkAir and low-cost subsidiary Scoot, also have started  operating with a fully-vaccinated onboard crew as part of their efforts to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic..

The first Singapore Airlines flight with a fully-vaccinated crew, departed Singapore for Jakarta, Indonesia on Feb. 11 at 9:30 a.m.  Scoot’s first flight with a fully-vaccinated crew left  Singapore for Bangkok at the same time on the same day while SilkAir’s first flight with a fully-vaccinated crew departed for Phnom Penh on the same day at 4:30 p.m.

“We are very encouraged by the strong take-up rate for the vaccine from our colleagues,” said Goh Choon Phong, Singapore Airlines’ CEO. “Vaccinations will be key to the reopening of borders and to enhancing travel confidence. They offer greater protection for our people and provide an added layer of assurance to our customers.”
