Scoot resuming Berlin flights from 10 Aug

Service will operate via Athens, allowing Scoot to tap on intra-Europe demand as EU opens up Scoot’s new fifth freedom service between Athens and Berlin will see it tap into the intra-Europe travel market from August 2021. The service is an extension of Scoot’s current thrice weekly Singapore-Athens service, with the tag-on of the Athens-Berlin leg. The service remains three times weekly, but there are changes to the flight numbers and timings. The last Singapore-Berlin service was on 20 March 2020, right before the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. That flight departed Berlin Tegel International Airport (IATA: TXL), which has since been replaced by Brandenburg Airport (IATA: BER) which opened just months ago in June 2021.

The Clan Hotel Deluxe Room bed

REVIEW: The Clan Hotel, Deluxe Room

Impeccable service, compact and top-grade rooms and facilities, excellent location for foodies. One of the newest boys in town, The Clan Hotel first caught my eye as a mysterious building that seemed to suddenly towered out in the heart of the Telok Ayer district, with its bright shiny bronze facade. Originally slated to open in 2020, the opening was pushed back to 2021 due to Covid-19, without much fanfare and obviously with a lack of foreign guests as borders remained closed. In this post:• About the hotel• Location • Booking • Check-in• Car parking• Deluxe Room• Sky Gym & Sky Pool• Breakfast• Final thoughts The Hotel Managed by Far East Hospitality, the hotel is one of the newer concepts introduced into the fold. For the uninitiated, Far East Hospitality also manages some other hotel brands such as Oasia, Village and Rendezvous, which tend to run mid tier in terms of price and lux. The Clan Hotel is a new venture into the premium segment. To be sure, The Clan Hotel is a textbook example of …

Plaza Premium lounges part ways with Priority Pass from 1 July; launches own PPL Pass

Plaza Premium has announced that it will stop accepting Priority Pass entries at most of its lounges worldwide from 1 Jul 2021, and will be introducing its own PPL Pass Why this matters? Priority Pass is the world’s largest network of independent airport lounges, with over 1,300 lounges around the world. All kinds of premium credit cards offer a Priority Pass membership, which is a great way to get lounge access when traveling. Priority Pass doesn’t operate lounges as such, but rather has partner lounges that it pays when a member visits. Plaza Premium operates the world’s largest collection of independent airport lounges, with 180 locations across nearly 50 airports. You can’t directly buy a Plaza Premium lounge membership, but rather Plaza Premium acts as a contract lounge provider for premium airline passengers, and for other lounge access programs. Historically you’ve been able to visit virtually all Plaza Premium lounges with a Priority Pass membership, but that will soon be changing. There will be a handful of lounges that will continue to accept Priority Pass …

Singapore to restart travel bubble arrangement with Hong Kong from 26 May

Will it be a second time lucky? The long awaited Air Travel Bubble (ATB) between Singapore and Hong Kong is finally set to take off from 26 May 2021, announced by both Singapore and Hong Kong on 26 Apr. This comes almost six months after the plans for the quarantine-free all-purpose travel arrangement was delayed just hours before its launch in November, and subsequently scuppered in December last year, due to a reflux of local cases in Hong Kong as new infections occured. What are the new requirements? By and large, the requirements remain the same as what was proposed last year, including: Travellers must have stayed in Singapore or Hong Kong wholly for the preceding 14 days before travel. This excludes select groups of foreign workers (Holders of Work Permits or S Passes working in the construction, marine shipyard and process sectors), as requested by the Hong Kong government. Travellers must take mutually recognised COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and will need to have negative test results. Travellers will not be subject to any quarantine …
