Singapore Airlines eases mask requirements

SIA Group has pursued multiple projects in support of its sustainability goals even amidst the Covid-19 pandemic

Masks will no longer be required on most routes from 29 August 2022

Singapore Airlines updated its policy following the latest guidelines from the Singapore government and has ended its mask requirement on most routes.

Like most Asian airlines, Singapore’s national carrier strictly enforced mask-wearing on all its flights, regardless of the destination, in line with government guidelines. Any passenger aged six and above was required to wear a mask, which could only be removed during meal times.

Now, the Singapore government has announced that from 29 August 2022 mask-wearing will no longer be mandatory, unless on ground public transport and in healthcare facilities.

The news means that passengers flying on Singapore Airlines will not be required to wear masks on their flights unless they are flying to or from destinations that still mandate it. 

For example, masks will still be required on Singapore Airlines flights to Italy, Germany and Spain due to regulatory requirements in those countries. 


The wearing of masks will also become optional at Singapore’s Changi International Airport, but passengers who still wish to wear a mask may continue to do so.
