Does Singapore Require You To Wear PPE Suits On Flights?

Take a look at the video yourself, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Passengers Wearing PPE Suits In Singapore Airport

Does Singapore Require You To Wear PPE Suits On Flights?

The video is genuine and was recorded on 31 May 2020, showing real passengers in blue PPE suits waiting for their flight in Terminal 3 of Changi Airport in Singapore.

They Are Vietnamese Citizens

You can hear the passengers speaking Vietnamese in the video. They are actually part of 340 Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from Singapore after COVID-19 infections there approached 35,000.

They include the elderly, pregnant women, those with pre-existing health conditions, the young (under 18 years of age), or tourists with expired or expiring visas – all of whom paid their own fares for the flight.

The PPE Suit Was Required By Vietnam Airlines

It was Vietnam Airlines that required both passengers and aircrew to don those blue PPE suits, as well as face masks and gloves.

This requirement started on 15 May 2020, after two Vietnam Airlines flight attendants tested positive for COVID-19 after a repatriation flight from Russia.

They actually had to wear all that for the entire duration of the flight, and were quarantined upon arriving at Can Tho, a southern Vietnamese city.

PPE Suits Were Not Required Only In Singapore

This requirement to wear blue PPE suits, face masks and gloves was not exclusive to Singapore or Changi Airport.

It was mandated for all Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from COVID-19 hotspots by Vietnam Airlines.

Here are photos of the same precautions being carried out on Vietnamese citizens being repatriated from Taiwan :

Singapore Does Not Require PPE Suits In Changi Airport

Changi Airport in Singapore does not require passengers to wear PPE suits. They only require everyone to wear a face mask.
