Clark International Airport (CRK) is now a vital link to quarantine-free travel destinations using Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services to and from Singapore.

From this Friday, March 4, Singaporean carriers Scoot and Jetstar Asia will offer VTL services to Singapore from CRK.

These grew when the Singapore Ministry of Transport recently included Clark in its Vaccinated Travel Lane scheme.

Singapore’s Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) program allows fully vaccinated people to enter Singapore without quarantine via designated VTL flights, provided specific VTL requirements are met.

VTL travelers do not need to take a polymerase chain reaction test (PCR test) upon arrival at Changi Airport.

However, they will be required to take the Rapid Antigen Test (ART), a supervised self-swab test at any test center in Singapore within 24 hours of arrival.

Short-term visitors and eligible work permit holders must also apply for a Vaccine Travel Pass (VTP).

VTP applications for the Philippines open today, March 1 at 10 a.m. (Singapore time).

Jetstar Asia operates 6 times per week flights from Singapore to CRK and vice versa, while Scoot operates daily return flights.

The new measures are in line with Singapore’s borders reopening to reclaim its position as a global business and aviation hub.

“We are very pleased with this news as we continue to be optimistic that air travel demand will return to normal,” said Bi Yong Chungunco, CEO of Luzon International Premiere Airport Development Corporation (LIPAD), which operates the airport. Clark International Airport welcomes this development.

“Our facilities, including the new terminal when it opens, are ready for safer and more dynamic air travel,” he added.
