Singapore-Hong Kong Detail Travel Bubble Schedule: Virus Update

(Bloomberg) — A travel bubble linking Singapore and Hong Kong will begin operating on Nov. 22. The bubble, which was announced last month, will let travelers move between the two regions with testing replacing quarantine.

Japan recorded the second-highest number of cases since the summer surge, while South Korea saw its biggest gain in infections in almost three weeks. India added more than 44,000 cases, while Mongolia returned to lockdown for three days after two people were infected. Meanwhile, Taiwan approved a visit without quarantine from a small group of U.S. tech company officials, the first easing of its strict controls.

The coronavirus is also roaring back in U.S. cities after months of crisis centered in more rural areas, with hospitalization in the country reaching a record. Cities from Newark to San Francisco announced new restrictions to help cope with the surge, as cases in the U.S. top 1 million in the first 10 days of November alone.

Celltrion Hopes to Submit Covid Drug Application by Year-End (12:42 p.m. HK)

Shares in South Korea’s Celltrion jumped after Chairman Seo Jung-Jin said the company plans to apply for sales approval for the firm’s Covid-19 drug as early as the end of the year after completing a phase 2 clinical trial. Seo says he hopes authorities grant fast-track approval for the drug.

Singapore-Hong Kong Travel Bubble to Begin Nov. 22 (10:03 a.m. HK)

A travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong will begin on Nov. 22, authorities announced, with daily service by Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. and Singapore Airlines Ltd. from Dec. 7. The bubble will be limited to 200 passengers per flight, and will completely replace the need for quarantine. Singapore Minister for Transport Ong Ye Kung said it was the first bubble of its type in the world, and may be used as a template for other countries, if successful.

Here’s the flight schedule for the travel bubble.

An Airbus SE A320 passenger jet is prepared for boarding during media a preview of HK Express airline’s “Flycation” flight experience at Hong Kong International Airport in Hong Kong, China, on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2020. Various carriers in the region have launched so-called flights to nowhere, catering to people still yearning to fly.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. and Singapore Airlines Ltd. will operate the flights. They’ll both fly the route on the opening day and then do a handful of flights over the subsequent week or so before eventually flying it on a daily basis from Dec. 7. A maximum of 200 people will be permitted on each flight.

Singapore Airlines said Wednesday it will use Airbus SE A350 aircraft for the route, first departing Changi Airport on Nov. 22 at 10 a.m. The flight on Nov. 23 will leave at 8 a.m., while from Nov. 25 to Dec. 4 it will leave at 7:35 a.m. and return from Hong Kong at 12:30 p.m.

The carrier’s Scoot unit will operate non-air travel bubble flights between the cities, it said in a statement. Customers with existing bookings who don’t meet air travel bubble requirements or are transiting and therefore not eligible will have the option of being rebooked on Scoot instead.

Those traveling on non-air travel bubble flights must meet the entry requirements of their destination, and are likely to have to serve a quarantine.

“This air travel bubble arrangement is an important step for both Singapore and Hong Kong as we rebuild from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and supports the ongoing recovery of the airline industry,” Singapore Airlines Chief Executive Officer Goh Choon Phong said.

United slashes December schedule but plans extra flights for peak holiday travel days at O’Hare, other hubs

United Airlines will offer less than half the number of flights it did last December as the coronavirus pandemic continues to take a toll on travel heading into the holiday season.

Still, Chicago-based United expects the holidays to bring more travelers back to the skies and will add extra flights around peak holiday travel days, the airline said Monday.

The week of Thanksgiving is expected to be its busiest since March. In December, the busiest holiday travel days will see more daily departures than the rest of the month, including more flights from hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston and Washington, D.C., United said.

The airline said it expects about half of its passengers flying for Thanksgiving to book their trips less than a month in advance, up from about 40% last year.

It wasn’t immediately clear which destinations would see fewer holiday season flights than last year. United plans to fly 52% of last year’s December schedule of domestic flights.

Even with fewer flights, average domestic airfares are expected to drop roughly 40% around Thanksgiving and Christmas because of lower demand, travel data firm Hopper said last month.

Nearly half of Chicagoans aren’t planning to travel as much this holiday season as they did last year, according to a consumer survey by Deloitte.

United is adding service to warm weather destinations in Florida and Hawaii, including resuming service between Chicago and Maui, as well as domestic ski destinations and some international beach destinations. The airline said it plans to fly 43% of last year’s schedule of international flights, up from 39% in November.

“While this holiday travel season looks quite different than recent years, we’re continuing to follow the same playbook we have all year long – watching the data and adding more flights, adjusting schedules and leveraging larger aircraft to give customers more ways to reunite with family or reach their destinations,” Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of network planning and scheduling, said in a news release.

Pence’s top aides have COVID; he’ll keep up travel schedule

Vice President Mike Pence plans to maintain an aggressive campaign schedule this week, the White House says, despite an apparent outbreak of the coronavirus among his senior aides.

Pence’s chief of staff, Marc Short, and “a couple of key staff surrounding the vice president” have tested positive for the virus, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Sunday.

The vice president, who along with his wife, Karen, tested negative on Sunday, according to his office, is considered a “close contact” of the aides under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria but will not quarantine, his spokesman said.

Devin O’Malley said Pence decided to maintain his travel schedule “in consultation with the White House Medical Unit” and “in accordance with the CDC guidelines for essential personnel.” Those guidelines require that essential workers exposed to someone with the coronavirus closely monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and wear a mask whenever around other people.

O’Malley said Pence and his wife both tested negative on Saturday “and remain in good health.”

President Trump commented on Short early Sunday after his plane landed at Joint Base Andrews, outside Washington. “I did hear about it just now,” he said. “And I think he’s quarantining. Yeah. I did hear about it. He’s going to be fine. But he’s quarantining.”

Saskia Popescu, an infectious disease expert at George Mason University, called Pence’s decision to travel “grossly negligent” regardless of the stated justification that Pence was an essential worker.

“It’s just an insult to everybody who has been working in public health and public health response,” she said. “I also find it really harmful and disrespectful to the people going to the rally” and the people on Pence’s own staff who will accompany him.

“He needs to be staying home 14 days,” she added. “Campaign events are not essential.”

After a day of campaigning in Florida on Saturday, Pence was seen wearing a mask as he returned to Washington aboard Air Force Two shortly after the news of Short’s diagnosis was made public. He is scheduled to hold a rally on Sunday afternoon in Kinston, N.C.

Pence, who has headed the White House coronavirus task force since late February, has repeatedly found himself in an uncomfortable position balancing political concerns with the administration’s handling the pandemic that has killed more than 220,000 Americans. The vice president has advocated mask-wearing and social distancing, but often does not wear one himself and holds large political events where many people do not wear face coverings.

By virtue of his position as vice president, Pence is considered an essential worker. The White House did not address how Pence’s political activities amounted to essential work.

Short’s diagnosis came just weeks after the coronavirus spread through the White House, infecting Trump, the first lady, and two dozen other aides, staffers and allies.

Short, Pence’s top aide and one of his closest confidants, did not travel with the vice president on Saturday. Top Pence political advisor Marty Obst tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this
