Hong Kong and Singapore are set to begin an air travel bubble on May 26, Hong Kong authorities said in a news release on Monday.

The scheme will allow visitors to travel between the two cities on dedicated flights without the need for quarantine.

The plan was first proposed last year but was postponed in November following a rise in Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong.

To be eligible for the scheme, visitors must not have travel history outside of Hong Kong or Singapore in the past 14 days, and are required to download the destination city's official contact tracing app.

The travel bubble will automatically be suspended if the number of untraceable local Covid-19 cases in either city reaches more than five in a seven-day period.

Singapore and Hong Kong are not the only two governments to have had trouble implementing an air travel bubble.

India reported 352,991 new Covid-19 cases on Monday, bringing its total to more than 17. 3 million infections, according to a CNN tally of figures from the Indian Ministry of Health.
