    The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) announced a collaboration to welcome the launch of the Hong Kong-Singapore Air Travel Bubble

    The Hong Kong-Singapore Air Travel Bubble (ATB)– a bilateral, all-purpose and quarantine-free arrangement – is a milestone for the global tourism industry, and paves the way for a safe resumption of international travel.

    The partnership between the HKTB and the STB is also the first between the two tourism boards. It demonstrates the close ties between the two destinations as well as a mutual commitment to provide visitors with a safe travel experience.

    Dane Cheng, HKTB Executive Director said it is a hugely important moment that shows the world that safe international travel is possible, and paves the way to bring tourist flights to and from other markets.

    The health and safety of locals and travellers remain a key priority. To provide visitors with peace of mind, both destinations have already put in place city-wide certification programs for hygiene and safety.

    The HKTB has rolled out the Anti-Epidemic Hygiene Measures Certification Scheme to ensure that every touch point of visitors’ journey is covered with anti-epidemic measures.

    Meanwhile, Singapore’s SG Clean is a national mark of excellence awarded to businesses across Singapore – including tourism establishments – that meet its high standards of hygiene and sanitisation.

    As part of the partnership, the tourism boards of the two cities will undertake joint promotional activities such as coordinated social media content.
