Singapore Airlines and Silkair increases frequency in October, November

At least five cities: Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Sydney and London get daily services from November.

Singapore Airlines and Silkair has published their schedules up to November, with a published schedule to a total of 34 cities across 23 countries/territories.

This is the furthest horizon the airline has published its post-coronavirus schedules, as it has previously updated its reduced schedules only about four weeks in advance.

There is only one new route – Surabaya – published up to November, with Singapore Airlines and Silkair serving a total of 34 destinations. Overall, the two airlines are flying at about 11% of its pre-Covid-19 capacity.

Between Singapore Airlines and Silkair, the two carriers will operate about 1,000 flights in November.

Key changes

Some of the key changes include:

Southeast Asia

  • Jakarta services will maintain daily services in October, but will increase from 7 times to 10 times weekly in November.
  • SIA will mount a twice-weekly service to Surabaya, using the B777-300 aircraft and later A330-300.
  • Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi remains one way services to Singapore in October.

North Asia

  • Seoul will be served five times weekly, up from three.

Southwest Pacific

  • Brisbane gets a non-stop service in November, flying direct twice a week. This is on top of the one-stop service via Sydney.
  • Melbourne to Singapore resumes with only a weekly service in October, while there are no flights available for booking from Singapore to Melbourne. SIA is tentatively planning for a 7 times a week service in November in both directions.
  • Auckland services begins a fifth weekly service in November, up from four.
  • Services to Christchurch will increase to thrice weekly in October.

Europe

  • Services to London (Heathrow) will increase to 9 times a week in September and then 12 times a week from October.

Final thoughts

With schedules inching up above the 10% of pre-crisis levels, the month-on-month increase is encouraging for the industry and for travellers, although a full recovery will probably take a couple of years.

With no signs of any leisure travel market happening among Asia Pacific countries as of now, a faster pick-up of flight frequencies is unlikely in the coming months. We can only hope that green-lane arrangements are announced soon for leisure travel.
