Part of ensuring you, and others get to enjoy the rewards of the air travel bubble is to avoid behaving like a covidiot.

An air travel bubble is a privilege not many others are able to enjoy. While a holiday usually invites you to let your hair down, we politely ask you do so while continuing to exercise civic responsibility.

Wear your mask at all times while you're out in public. Observe social group limits in the respective countries. Do not test the group limit of F&B establishments when you're out revelling (these businesses cannot afford to shut due to your self-centredness). Opt for activities that distance you from crowds - as both Hong Kong and Singapore are renowned for their nature parks, trails and hikes, might we suggest reconnecting with nature?
