Thanks to a reciprocal agreement between Emirates and Singapore-based low-cost carrier Jetstar Asia, customers of both airlines are now able to catch connecting flights at Singapore Changi Airport for the first time since the spread of Covid-19 sparked a global travel shutdown early last year.

Emirates passengers can once again arrive in Singapore and transfer to a Jetstar Asia flight to one of eight destinations in Southeast Asia, namely Bangkok, Clark, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Penang, Phnom Penh, and Surabaya. Access to all other destinations in Jetstar Asia’s scheduled network will be subject to regulatory approvals once border restrictions are lifted.

Meanwhile, Jetstar passengers flying the other way can transit in Singapore and connect to Emirates services bound for Australia and New Zealand; Egypt, Kenya, and Mauritius; the E.U. Schengen countries, Ireland, and Russia; as well as the United States and Brazil.

Emirate customers can be checked through at their first international departure point for the onward connecting service. On board the Jetstar Asia flight, they will enjoy a complimentary meal or snack and the same luggage allowance as that provided by Emirates. Travelers must book their entire journey on one Emirates booking and check with the relevant authorities to ensure they meet all the entry requirements for their final destination. While transiting in Singapore, passengers are required to wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing, in line with government regulations and Jetstar Asia’s Fly Well program.
