Singapore Airlines, the country’s national carrier, is on the road to becoming the first airline to vaccinate its entire staff against COVID-19. 

According to reports, all SIA members, including pilots, gate agents, flight attendants, and anyone whose job requires contact with the public, will receive free Pzifer coronavirus vaccines as a result of an initiative by the country’s government. Around 52,000 members have already signed up for their shots.

Once crew members have been vaccinated, they will not be required to conform to all coronavirus-related measures. Currently, they’re subjected to a test on the seventh day of their return to Singapore. Going forward, they will be exempt from this directive.

Singapore has been successful in mitigating coronavirus cases as a consequence of its border-control measures, and a national contact-tracing application. According to a recent announcement by authorities, all inbound travellers, including Singaporeans and permanent residents, are obligated to undergo a COVID-19 PCR test before entering the country.
