Singapore Airlines continued to post month-on-month growth in passenger capacity. Singapore Airlines and Scoot carried a total of 1.7 million passengers in May 2022, up 17.4% from the previous month. For the SIA group, passenger capacity (measured in available seat kilometres) reached 61% of pre-Covid levels in May 2022, 4 percentage points higher than the month before. The Group passenger load factor (PLF) for the month stood at 78.2%, the highest since the onset of the pandemic. Cargo operations registered a cargo load factor of 65.4%, or 22.3 percentage points lower year-on-year.

Cargo capacity (capacity tonne-kilometre) grew 30.2% on the back of passenger flight resumptions across the network. Cargo loads (freight tonne-kilometres) declined 3% as cargo demand was affected by the pandemic controls in China. In addition, more bellyhold space was allocated for baggage carriage as passenger load factors improved. During the month, SIA resumed operations to Medan, while Scoot recommenced services to Nanjing. At the end of May 2022, the Group’s passenger network covered 97 destinations including Singapore. SIA served 72 destinations while Scoot served 46 destinations2 as of end-May 2022.
