Conversely, in terms of cargo operations, the airlines observed a load factor of 52.4%, marking an 8.1 percentage point decrease compared to the previous year.
Cargo loads experienced a decline of 7.1% YoY due to weakened demand, while an expansion in capacity by 7.3% resulted from heightened passenger services contributing to greater belly-hold capacity.
In July, Scoot reintroduced flights to Jinan and Shenzhen while temporarily discontinuing services to Gold Coast as part of the airline’s strategy to align capacity with demand.
By the conclusion of July 2023, the passenger network of the Group encompassed a comprehensive array of 117 destinations situated across 36 different countries and territories.
The flag carrier and world’s renowned airline, Singapore Airlines (SIA), is set to notably enhance the frequency of its flights to several important markets between March and October 2024.
Effectively restoring many of its services, including those to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Melbourne, to their levels before the pandemic hit.
The national airline stated that this decision aims to cater to the robust demand for air travel to these specific destinations. Moreover, SQ plans to augment capacity on certain routes by deploying larger aircraft.

According to the airline, the deployment of a wide-body plane on this route is a revival after more than twenty years.
