Singapore Airlines Announces Service Reductions


Singapore Airlines Announces Service Reductions

Singapore Airlines (SIA) wishes to advise that it will implement a series of service reductions from late March in response to softening demand in the past few weeks attributed to concern about the situation in the Middle East.

A total of 65 services per week will be suspended and these are detailed below. There are no service suspensions to or from New Zealand and Australia.

SIA’s local offices will be endeavoring to contact affected passengers as soon as possible to provide details of the flight changes and to make arrangements for their bookings onto other scheduled services.

SIA will continue to monitor the international situation and make adjustments to match capacity with demand where necessary.

SIA has also implemented plans to ensure its services from Singapore to the Middle East and Europe, and its transatlantic services to the United States that operate via Europe, can continue safely.

Several alternative flight paths that avoid the areas of conflict are available, some of which are only marginally longer than the normal flight paths. These flight paths take routings well north or south of the conflict zone. As far as possible, SIA will use the most direct route to Europe, well north of the conflict zone, in which case flight times will not be affected significantly.

All flight paths in use by SIA avoid areas of conflict and plans are in place to respond quickly to any escalation or spread of the conflict by further widening the flight-path withdrawals. As always, safety and security are our absolute priorities.
