Singapore Airlines adjusts capacity

16 Dec 2009

Singapore Airlines will shortly be adjusting capacity on several routes in response to some recovery in passenger demand. On the other hand, it is also reducing frequency on some routes due to sluggish performance.

Increases

• From December 18, the Singapore-Moscow-Houston services increase to five-times-weekly from four-times-weekly.

• From January 19, 2010, the non-stop Singapore-Newark services return to double daily from the current five-times-weekly.

• Due to the new five-times-weekly Singapore-Munich flights, which carries on to Manchester, the Manchester services increase to five-times-weekly.

• Summer 2010 – Colombo and Dhaka will go to daily flights from five flights a week.

• From March and June 2010 respectively, Mumbai and Delhi will go to twice-daily up from the current 11-times-weekly.

• Services to Seoul will increase from June 2010 to 18-times-weekly from 14-times-weekly, with one of the flights carrying on to San Francisco.

• SIA will be serving Tokyo Haneda as previously announced with two daily flights from the end of October 2010. This complements the existing twice-daily flights to Tokyo Narita, one of which proceeds to Los Angeles.

Suspensions

• Twice-weekly services to Pakistan and Najing will be suspended due to unsatisfactory performance, with the last Singapore-Karachi-Lahore flights to run on February 17, 2010 and the last Singapore-Nanjing flight to operate on March 26, 2010.

Reductions

• From January 2010, Ho Chi Minh City will be served 14 times per week instead of 18 times

• Kuala Lumpur will be served 17 times per week rather than 24. However, overall SIA Group flight frequency on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route will remain unchanged at 54 per week as SilkAir will be taking over the operation of one of SIA’s daily services.
