There are current restrictions for travel to Singapore at this time. These restrictions are for the safety of Singapore citizens and travellers alike and are as follows: Singapore has restricted entry and transit of all short-term visitors who are not residents of Singapore, Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents, or Long-Term Pass Holders (including holders of Work Pass, Student’s Pass, Dependant’s Pass, and Long-Term Visit Pass). Travelers entering Singapore must self-isolate for 14 days at a dedicated Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) facility. Long-Term Visit Pass and Long-Term Visit Pass In-Principle Approval holders issued by ICA also need an Approved Letter for Entry (ALE) from ICA. Student’s Pass holders and Student’s Pass In-Principle Approval holders also need an ALE from the Ministry of Education (MOE). New and existing work pass holders are only allowed to enter Singapore with the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) prior approval. They are required to show the MOM’s approval letter to airline staff upon check-in and before boarding, as well as to ICA officers at the immigration checkpoint upon their arrival in Singapore. Short-term visitors with an ALE from ICA, Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI), Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) or MOH may still enter the country. However, they may still be subject to health screening upon arrival. Having an ALE does not guarantee a Visit Pass to enter Singapore. All travelers entering Singapore, including Singapore Citizens, Permanent Residents, and Long-Term Pass (LTP) holders must submit a health declaration via the SG Arrival Card (SGAC) e-Service, at https://eservices.ica.gov.sg/sgarrivalcard, or the mobile app. Airlines are requested to inform passengers at check-in and before boarding, as well as in-flight, to submit their health declaration via the SGAC e-Service prior to their arrival in Singapore. The paper-based embarkation/disembarkation card has been discontinued and is no longer distributed by airlines operating into Singapore.. If you must travel during this time and are allowed to based on current restrictions, please stay informed about updated travel safety tips.

December to June is normally the busiest time of the year so you’ll need to book your flight tickets in advance to find the cheapest flights to Singapore. You’ll also need to check whether the Monsoon season is in effect as the northeast sees the monsoon from December to March and the southwest has the honor from June to September. If you are hoping to visit during the Chinese New Year you’ll need to secure your flights to Singapore as early as possible. The chances of finding cheap flights around the New Year are very low so plan ahead, the Chinese New Year is a 15 day festival that begins around late January to early February depending on the lunar year.
The weather is warm most of the year however you’ll find the cheapest flights to Singapore around May to October depending on exactly where you are visiting. You’ll still need to secure your flight tickets in advance to make any kind of savings and tourism tends to slow down around August and September so you have a better chance of finding hotel deals and cheap flights to Singapore then.
Regardless of whether you are visiting during the peak season or not, you should try to book your flights to Singapore as early as you can. School holidays will increase the price of your flight tickets and the Chinese New Year makes it almost impossible to find cheap flights to Singapore around January and February without sufficient planning. If you can be flexible with your dates you’ll have the best chances of securing cheap flight tickets. Singapore also acts as a good hub for travelling to other countries so if you time things right you can find bargains by using Singapore as the middle point. The weather and wind can affect your landing but generally if you want to see Bali from the air then sit on the right hand side of the plane. Sit on the left for Sumatra. The plane might approach differently with bad wind conditions though so just make sure to have a seat by the window without a wing in the way and you’ll be greeted with amazing views.

Singapore Airlines, Virgin, British Airways and Qatar all offer flights to Singapore. All of them provide excellent service and high comfort onboard their flights so the main thing it comes down to is your own preference. Before securing your flight tickets it might be worth comparing the inflight entertainment on offer, although this will be different by the time you fly you’ll get an idea of which airline has the newest movies. British Airways offer complimentary snacks and beverages throughout their flights to Singapore and you can sign up to their executive program for free and begin earning free points to redeem against flight tickets and other gifts. Compare the prices for your dates and then decide which airline ticks your boxes most.
You can get to the city in a few different ways. From terminals 2 and 3 you can walk to the train station where you’ll want to transfer to the west-bound train at Tanah Merah station. From there you can just relax as the train will take you directly to the city centre. If you decide against the train then you can jump on either the 36 or 36a bus from the basement bus bays of terminals 1, 2 or 3. You won’t get change though so make sure you give the exact amount. The bus journey takes around an hour but is a convenient and regular way of travelling after your long flights to Singapore. Lastly you can jump into a taxi however these are a lot more expensive than both the bus and the train. If you are travelling with friends then you can split the fare and it might work out more efficient but generally I’d stick to the other methods unless money isn’t an option. Also make sure to agree on a fee before you get in the taxi as some drivers will try and overcharge you.
Singapore has seen a 86% decrease in demand for flights to the country compared to last year.
