Team Out of Town Blog Hub (Outoftownblog.com) – Clark International Airport (CRK) is now a vital link to quarantine-free travel destinations using Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services to and from Singapore.
Starting March 4, Singapore carriers Scoot and Jetstar Asia will offer VTL services to Singapore from CRK. These developed as the Singaporean Ministry of Transport recently included Clark in its Vaccinated Travel Lane program.
Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) program allows fully-vaccinated individuals to enter Singapore quarantine-free via designated VTL flights, provided that specific VTL conditions are met.
VTL travelers need not take an on-arrival Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR test) at the Changi Airport. However, they will be required to take the Antigen Rapid Test (ART), a supervised self-swab test at any test center located across Singapore within 24 hours of arrival. Short-term visitors and eligible work permit holders must also apply for Vaccine Travel Pass (VTP). VTP applications for the Philippines will open on March 1 at 10 a.m. (Singapore time).
Jetstar Asia operates 6x a week flights from Singapore to CRK and vice versa, while Scoot operates daily return flights.
The new measures are in line with Singapore’s reopening of borders to reclaim its position as a global business and aviation hub.
Bi Yong Chungunco, CEO of Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corporation (LIPAD) which operates Clark International Airport, welcomes this development. “We are very pleased with this news as we continue to be optimistic that the demand for air travel is getting back to normal. Our facilities, including the new terminal when it opens, are ready for safe and more vibrant air travel.”
