Singapore’s biggest companies to announce travel advisories as JetBlue flights hit turbulence
JetBlue will begin issuing travel advisices on Thursday for Singapore as the airline seeks to prevent passengers from boarding flights from the capital to the islands of Bali.
The Singaporean airline said in a statement that the advisories would “provide a critical reminder to all our customers to ensure they are ready to board their scheduled flights to Singapore, and will ensure the safety of all of our employees.”
Airline spokeswoman Lulu Liqing said the advisors were issued to help customers who may have been stranded in Singapore due to the disruption caused by the turbulence at Bali International Airport on Monday.
Airport director-general Peter Bajaj said the airline was looking to mitigate any impacts to Singaporeans who might have been affected by the storm.
“We are closely monitoring the situation and we are working to ensure we can provide as much information as possible to our customers,” Bajij said in Singapore.
He said the company planned to send a flight schedule to Singapore and other airlines on Thursday.
Earlier this month, a group of the world’s largest airlines including Air France, United Airlines, British Airways, Ryanair and EasyJet said they would halt flights to Bali after the storm hit.
JetBlue said it will not change its policy on Bali flights because the airlines have the authority to do so. Read more:
