AAV_Bulletin_NEWSIn September 2023, the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group continued to see robust demand for air travel as the airline approaches the end of the summer season in the Northern hemisphere.

Passenger traffic grew 24.8% compared to last year, outpacing capacity expansion of 23.7%. Consequently, the Group’s passenger load factor increased 0.7 percentage points year-on-year to reach 87.7%, with SIA and Scoot posting monthly PLFs of 87.6% and 88.1% respectively. Both airlines carried a combined total of 2.9 million passengers during the month, up 36.0% from a year before.

Cargo operations posted a load factor of 57.1%, or 0.7 percentage points higher year-on-year. Cargo loads rose by 6.1% year-on-year, which was higher than the capacity expansion of 4.6% on the back of increased bellyhold capacity from passenger services.

At the end of September 2023, the Group’s passenger network1 covered 119 destinations in 36 countries and territories. SIA served 75 destinations, while Scoot served 67 destinations. The cargo network1 comprised 124 destinations in 38 countries and territories.
