SIA Group has started flying with fully vaccinated flight crew on all three of its airline brands.
Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Scoot all operated their first international flights with pilots and cabin crew who have been given the jab.
Singapore’s government made the aviation sector a prority for early vaccinations due to its importance as a tourism and business travel hub.
Flight crew have received both required doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, the airline said.
SIA says flight crews are supportive of the exercise and in favour of vaccinations.
It says more than 90% of cabin crew and pilots have signed up to receive the vaccine.
“We are very encouraged by the strong take-up rate for the vaccine from our colleagues. Vaccinations will be key to the reopening of borders and to enhancing travel confidence, in tandem with robust testing regimes,” said Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Choon Phong.
