All three passenger airlines within the SIA Group – Singapore Airlines (SIA), SilkAir
and Scoot – will today be among the first carriers in the world to operate flights with
a full complement of vaccinated pilots and cabin crew.

The first services with a full set of vaccinated crew are SIA flight SQ956, which
departed Singapore for Jakarta, Indonesia on 11 February 2021 at 0930hrs local
time (GMT+8), Scoot’s TR 606 which departed for Bangkok, Thailand at 0930hrs,
and Silk Air’s MI608 which will depart for Phnom Penh, Cambodia at 1630hrs.

The operating crew within the SIA Group have responded very positively to the exercise, with more than 90% of cabin crew and pilots signing up for the vaccine to date.

Mr Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive Officer, Singapore Airlines, said, “we are very
encouraged by the strong take-up rate for the vaccine from our colleagues.

“Vaccinations will be key to the reopening of borders and to enhancing travel
confidence, in tandem with robust testing regimes and the wide-ranging safe
management measures that are in place on the ground and in the air.

“They offer greater protection for our people and provide an added layer of assurance to our customers.
