SIA Group passenger traffic swells 10 times in April

Passenger traffic grew on the back of increased passenger capacity.

SIA Group reported an increase in passenger traffic up to 10 times in April compared to a year ago, on the back of a calibrated increase in passenger capacity over the past 12 months.

This saw the group’s passenger capacity rise to around 24% of pre-Covid levels by April, 2021.

Passenger load factor (PLF) for the month increased 4.6 percentage points year-on- year to 13.7%.

At the end of April, Singapore Airlines was flying to 49 destinations. This followed the re-introduction of Taipei services, as well as the transfer of Medan from SilkAir as part of the ongoing integration of narrow-body operations with the parent airline.

SilkAir’s network has been reduced to only three destinations, Cebu, Kathmandu and Singapore. Including Singapore, the combined network for full-service carriers grew from 50 destinations in March to 51 destinations at the end of April.

Meanwhile, Scoot, SIA’s low-cost carrier subsidiary, served 19 destinations as at the end of April with the reinstatement of flights to Macau. Operations to South Asia and Europe remained suspended. SIA Cargo registered a monthly cargo load factor (CLF) of 92.1%, which was 16.5 percentage points higher year-on-year, as cargo traffic rose by 82.7% on the back of a capacity expansion of 49.9%. All route regions except West Asia and Africa recorded year-on-year increases in CLF during the month.
