Singapore Airlines Successfully Vaccinates Entire Onboard Crew

The Singapore Airlines Group (SIA) is among the first carriers in the world to fully vaccinate their pilots and cabin crew. All three passenger airlines with SIA have vaccinated their staff and the first fully immunised services onboard Singapore Airlines (SIA), SilkAir and Scoot have all now departed.

Singapore government has facilitated the process

These flights include SIA flight SQ956, which departed Singapore for Jakarta earlier, along with  Scoot’s TR606 which departed for Bangkok and SilkAir’s MI608 which left for Phnom Penh in Cambodia. The government in Singapore has facilitated the vaccination process by prioritising the aviation sector in the country’s overall vaccination drive. 

The crew within the SIA group have all responded positively to the vaccination programme. More than 90 percent of cabin crew and pilots have signed up for the vaccine to date. Goh Choon Phong, chief executive of Singapore Airlines, said: “We are very encouraged by the strong take-up rate for the vaccine from our colleagues. Vaccinations will be key to the reopening of borders and to enhancing travel confidence, in tandem with robust testing regimes and the wide-ranging safe management measures that are in place on the ground and in the air. They offer greater protection for our people and provide an added layer of assurance to our customers.”
