It has been awhile since we managed to travel. We finally have the chance to fly Singapore Airlines again.
This time, we will fly Singapore Airlines in regional settings.
SIA only recently merged with SilkAir. Therefore, SQ will manage all the existing Boeing 737-800 fleets.
This flight is from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) to Singapore.
Do note that there are still quarantine requirements to enter Singapore.
For the hotels to isolate yourself, you can find the list here.

Additionally, the seat map is here.
Clearly, Row 11 has the advantage for the better extra legroom.
We surely experienced the same check-in process.
The procudures and the services are certainly top-notch.
The Flight Experience
With this purpose in mind, let’s dig deep into the whole flight experience.
Boeing 737-800 Business Class Seat
The seat is far cry from their staple Business Class seat. We have our review on the experience here.
As a matter of fact, It is rather narrow, and equivalent to their wide-body Premium Economy seat. In this case, this is definitely not a good value in terms of miles redemption.
Food Service in Singapore Airlines Regional Flight
This flight is merely 1 hour of flight time. Hence, you cannot expect much from this department.
The Flight & Service
Given that the flight is only an hour flight. This does not change the fact that their service is in fact top notch.
With this in mind, we can safely assure ourselves that we will have a good time.
As a result, one hour of flight flew by just like that. After that, soon it is time to land.
Enjoy the views here.
Arrival in Singapore
To begin with, they will segregate passengers based on transit status. At this point, transit passengers will go to another place than the ones with Singapore as destination.
Most of the passengers arriving to Singapore will have to go through Stay Home Notice (SHN). We have article on this here:
Sooner or later, we are starting to fly again as the pandemic becomes endemic. We hope that the aviation industry can go to a full swing once border restrictions are relaxed.
