Hot on the heels of today’s announcement on a start date for the all-purpose Air Travel Bubble (ATB) between Hong Kong and Singapore, the flag carriers of both cities have rolled out their flight schedules for the quarantine-free flights.

Cathay Pacific says it will be deploying Airbus A350-900 aircraft staffed by pilots and cabin crew who have all been fully vaccinated. Its inaugural quarantine-free service from Hong Kong to Singapore, CX759, will depart on 26 May, while the airline’s first ATB flight from Singapore to Hong Kong, CX734, is scheduled for the following day.

Cathay’s schedule for ATB flights from May 26 to June 8 is as follows:

Flight Route Dates Departure Time Arrival Time
CX759 HKG > SIN May 26, 27, 29;

June 1, 3, 5, 6, 8

09:10 13:05
CX734 SIN > HKG May 27, 29;

June 1, 3, 5, 6, 8

14:45 19:00

Starting on June 10, Cathay Pacific will operate daily return ATB flights to Singapore with the same time slots.

Meanwhile, Singapore Airlines will be operating its inaugural ATB flight to Hong Kong, SQ882, on May 26, while SIA’s first quarantine-free passenger service from Hong Kong to Singapore, SQ883, is slated to depart on May 28. Initially these will be operated aboard Airbus A350-900 aircraft, but the carrier will switch to Boeing 777-300ERs from June onward.

From 26 May to 7 June 2021, the flight schedule will be as follows:

Flight Route Dates Departure Time Arrival Time
SQ882 SIN > HKG May 26, 28, 30, 31;

08:40 12:40
SQ883 HKG > SIN May 28, 30, 31;
