Singapore Airlines slashes capacity across its network

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is suspending additional services across its network amid an unprecedented time in the airline industry.

Singapore Airlines will operate only 50 per cent of the capacity that had been originally scheduled up to end-April in response to the growing border controls globally and its deepening impact on air travel.

“We have lost a large amount of our traffic in a very short time, and it will not be viable for us to maintain our current network,” said SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong.

“Make no mistake – we expect the pace of this deterioration to accelerate. The SIA Group must be prepared for a prolonged period of difficulty.”
