Singapore Airlines and Silkair increase flights in July 2020

Slight increase over June’s operations, but still down 94% from last year

Singapore Airlines and Silkair has updated its July flight schedules, operating to a total of 27 cities across 18 countries/territories. While this is no change from June, there are some favourable developments, including the commencement of transit traffic from select countries.

Singapore Airlines schedule

Singapore Airlines has not announced any ‘new’ destinations that it will be serving in July, but some notable observations for July schedules are as follow:

  • Auckland now sees three flights a week, up from two in the month of June
  • Flights to Manila are now possible, albeit only two services in the month of July
  • Scoot has resumed a weekly service to Taipei, and also planned some ad-hoc services to Surabaya towards the end of July

[Update 8 July] Silkair has removed its earlier planned services to Cebu, while Singapore Airlines will be commencing twice-weekly flights to Paris from 15 July. In addition, passengers will not be accepted on flights from Singapore to Melbourne due to government restrictions, although these flights are still operating.

The full schedules for Singapore Airlines for July are as follow:

Scoot’s schedule for July

Scoot has further expanded its operations for July, adding the following cities to its fold:

  • Surabaya
  • Taipei

While these have been provisionally planned, Scoot has been known to adjust its schedules at the very last minute, most notably reducing its flights to Malaysia in June.

Final thoughts

This expanded schedule, while promising, is still a 94% reduction of its previously planned July schedule.

With transit arrangements now in place for 14 countries, it is expected that Singapore Airlines will continue to make progress on that front, even as it gradually expands the number of destinations it serves.

I’m also keen to see which other countries Singapore will set up travel ‘green lanes’ or ‘travel bubbles’, and hopefully bring back some level of leisure travel in the near term.
