SIA sees capacity take off
Published: Jun 16, 2010
Singapore - Singapore Airlines reported a 69.1% fill of capacity available on its planes for passenger and cargo in May.
This was an increase of 6.3 percentage points compared to the same period in 2009, reported CNA. However, it was slightly below 69.3% posted in April 2010.
SIA attributed this improvement to the friendlier economic climate which fuelled both passenger and cargo load factors across most regions.
Passenger load factor was up 7.9 percentage points to 74.8%, with the number of passengers carried increasing 8.4% on-year to 1.3 million in May.
The airline believed the growth in capacity was a result of additional flights to destinations in America, South West Pacific, North Asia, West Asia and Africa. Additionally, the introduction of direct services to Munich contributed as well.
In terms of cargo, SIA's cargo load factor too rose by 5.4 percentage points to 66.6%.
