(Bloomberg) -- A flight bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore will open on Nov. 22, allowing travellers from either hub to visit without having to go through quarantine, provided they pass virus tests and meet other requirements.

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.
