Bangkok Airways resumes flights between Samui and Singapore

Bangkok Airways will resume its first international service between Koh Samui and Singapore from August 1, 2021.

The resumption of the service supports Thailand’s reopening plan, which includes the Samui Plus program, in which Koh Samui is one of three resort islands to reopen to fully vaccinated foreign travelers without any quarantine requirements.

Bangkok Airways will fly three times a week between Koh Samui and Singapore

The resumed services between Samui and Singapore will be operated by an Airbus A319 aircraft, starting with three weekly flights each Monday, Thursday and Sunday.

The outbound flight PG961 will depart Samui Airport at 3:05 p.m. and arrive in Singapore at 6:00 p.m. Incoming flight PG962 will depart Singapore at 7:30 p.m. and arrive at Samui Airport at 8:35 p.m.

Passengers entering Thailand will be required to present an entry certificate, a negative Covid-19 RT-PCR test result issued within 72 hours of travel, a vaccine certificate or proof of vaccination.

Additionally, all passengers must undergo Covid-19 testing while in Thailand. Travelers with a vaccination certificate and a negative Covid-19 test result are exempt from quarantine when traveling to the following islands: Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao. They must stay on the island for at least 14 days before traveling to other parts of Thailand.

Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, Chairman of Bangkok Airways, said: “We are more than delighted to announce the resumption of our first international flight after a long hiatus due to the pandemic. The Samui-Singapore route should restore confidence in Thai tourism. We have ensured that Samui and Singapore have strong processes in place to ensure that travel between the two cities can be done safely. “
