With demand for travel still remaining relatively soft, primarily due to the SARS virus, Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced further reductions in capacity, mainly in Asia, in May and June 2003.
The attached table shows the number of frequencies to the affected destinations according to the planned schedules for Northern Summer, and the revised number, after deducting those that have been cut.
Services to Brussels, previously suspended until 31 May, have now been terminated, but convenient connections are available to and from Brussels via SIA’s European gateways, which include Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, London and Paris, as well as other major European cities.
The latest cuts bring the total reduction in capacity, in terms of available seat kilometres, to 31.5 per cent for the period April to June 2003. Up to 358 frequencies per week have been suspended.
