With Vietnam recently reopening its borders to flights from select countries in the Asia-Pacific region, it’s no surprise that Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary has restarted passenger services to Ho Chi Minh City. Travelers are now being flown on an Airbus A320neo that will be operated four times a week, on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Outbound Flight TR 302 will depart Singapore at 4:10 p.m. to reach Ho Chi Minh City at 5:15 p.m. after an estimated two hours and five minutes in the air. Following a turnaround time of just 40 minutes, Flight TR 303 will take off from Tan Son Nhat Airport just before six, and return to Changi at 9:05 p.m. Singapore time. Scoot also plans to return to Hanoi later this month: services on a twice-weekly basis have been penciled in from February 22.

Elsewhere in Southeast Asia, Scoot’s daily services between Singapore and Surabaya will resume from February 15 — a day before Singapore Airlines touches down once more in Bali — but there is no word on when the carrier will transport passengers to other cities on the Indonesian islands of Java and Sumatra as it did before the Covid-19 pandemic. Scoot originally hoped to relaunch flights to Palembang, Pekanbaru, and Yogyakarta as early as September 2020; those plans have been shelved until further notice. As for its newest long-haul seasonal route, Singapore–Bangkok–London Gatwick, twice-weekly services are scheduled from March 22, though flights to London have not yet opened for bookings.
