Lufthansa, Garuda, And Swiss Resume Transit services In Singapore


Lufthansa, Garuda, and Swiss resume their operations in Singapore as the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has approved them to resume transit services at Changi Airport this month.

These airlines serve Singapore from the following destinations.

  • Garuda Indonesia – Denpasar/Bali (DPS), Jakarta–Soekarno-Hatta (CGK) and Surabaya Juanda (SUB).
  • Lufthansa – Frankfurt International (FRA) and Munich (MUC).
  • SWISS – Zürich (ZRH).

Last month, SIA, Silkair, Scoot and Jetstar Asia have also resumed flight services.

The Singaporean government had initially banned certain short-term visitors, including transit passengers, last month.


However, not all of these routes are currently operational, and those that are subject to reduced frequencies. For example, the Lufthansa website shows that there is currently a weekly service from Frankfurt to Singapore every Tuesday.
