In a joint media statement by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Singapore Ministry of Defence (Mindef) on Wednesday (June 6) evening, airspace restrictions over the Republic will be in place from June 10 to June 14.

"CAAS and Mindef have issued notices to airmen on the airspace restrictions through the usual aeronautical information channel on 4 and 6 June 2018," the statement said.

It added: "Travellers are advised to expect delays for flights arriving at and departing from Singapore during this period."

Singapore is set to host a summit meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12.

Earlier a notice to airmen posted by the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the US Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday said that airspace over Singapore will be temporarily restricted for parts of June 11, 12 and 13. 

All aircraft arriving into Singapore Changi Airport will be required to reduce speed and face some restrictions on runway use "for reasons of national security," the notice said.
