Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA), which is struggling with weak load factors, said on Wednesday it will suspend services to Abu Dhabi and Athens from October 26 due to weak demand.
SIA, the world’s second-largest carrier by market value, currently flies to and from Abu Dhabi three times a week. The Singapore flag carrier flies to the Greek capital twice a week, rising to thrice a week between early July and late September.
‘The suspensions are in line with Singapore Airlines’ policy to match capacity to prevailing market demand,’ the carrier said in a statement.
SIA said on Tuesday it carried 1.50 million passengers last month, down from 1.52 million in March. Its passenger load factor, however, edged up to 79.7 per cent from 79.5 per cent the month before.
