When the travel bubble launches on 22 November, it will start with one flight per day into each city and there's a quota of 200 travellers per flight. Starting from 7 December 2020, there'll be 2 flights per day. This will be increased to two flights a day from Dec 7.

Prices of designated flights
We did a little research on the prices for the designated flights and here's what we found:
1) Singapore Airlines
Check it out here
- Nov - SGD324.50 one-way (only Singapore to Hong Kong)
- Dec - SGD557.80 round-trip (first week of Dec), SGD618-SGD729 (second to fourth week of Dec), Prices can go over SGD1000 during the New Year period
2) Cathay Pacific
Check it out here
- Nov - SGD421.80 one-way (only Hong Kong to Singapore)
- Dec - from SGD486.50 round-trip (first to second week of Dec), from SGD636.80 to SGD734.80 round-trip (second to fourth week of Dec)
As there'll only be one flight from each city in November, do note that you'd have to travel to Hong Kong via Singapore Airlines and return via Cathay Pacific if your trip falls entirely in November. That will cost around SGD746.30 round-trip.
Considering that you'd expect to pay around SGD400+ on Singapore Airlines during a normal travel period and that prices can go up to SGD800+ during peak travel season, we'd say that the prices seem pretty reasonable for now.
