IMPACT – HIGH

Singapore and Hong Kong have postponed the implementation of an “air travel bubble” that will allow for quarantine-free travel between the two locations.

Key Points:

  • The travel bubble was set to be launched Sunday, but has been pushed back at least two weeks.
  • A new date for the first air bubble flights will be announced in early December.

Deloitte will provide updates on the travel bubble’s implementation as information becomes available.
