Singapore Airlines Ltd the world’s second-largest airline by market value, will add more flights to cities including Los Angeles and Moscow in response to a global rebound in travel.
Capacity to Russia and the US will increase, with flights on the Singapore-Los Angeles and Singapore-Moscow-Houston sectors operating daily, the airline said in an e-mailed statement today. The new schedules are for the northern winter period of October 31 to March 26, the airline said.
Global air travel is reviving with premium services rising by the most in six years in May, the International Air Transport Association said last week.
“The adjustments are in response to further growth in demand for travel,” Singapore Air said in the statement.
The carrier will increase capacity to Australia with a second daily service on the Singapore-Sydney route with the Airbus SAS A380, the world’s largest commercial jet, Singapore Air said. It will also add Tokyo airport to its network.
The airline fell 0.3 percent to S$14.7 at the close of trading in the city-state. The statement was released after the stock market closed.
