SINGAPORE -- Singapore and Malaysia have agreed to resume quarantine-free air travel between them on Nov. 29, for fully vaccinated passengers, in another step toward reviving their economies.

In a joint statement released Monday, Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Malaysian Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the move is "timely to progressively resume cross-border travel between both countries, in a safe manner." The neighbors are among Asia's most vaccinated countries.
