“We are happy to continuously see green shoots related to international travel as more countries open their borders, while others such as Bangkok, Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam completely dropped pre-departure COVID 19 tests for fully vaccinated individuals. As we anticipate demand to pick up, we will continue to boost our flight frequencies to enable our passengers to fly easy across our network – whether for a vacation or simply to visit family and friends, after such a long time,” said Xander Lao, CEB Chief Commercial Officer.
Passengers are urged to check the travel and health requirements of their destination counties for the latest protocols.
