The flag carrier said it will restore its Indian network to pre-COVID levels by the end of October 2022, plus increase services to points in Japan. Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY) also said it will add more flights to Los Angeles and Paris by December 2022, as well as extend direct Vancouver services over the winter season.

When announcing full-year financial results in May, Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY) said it expected group capacity to reach 61% of pre-COVID levels in its fiscal first quarter (to the end of June) and 67% in the second quarter.
“The SIA Group will closely monitor the demand for air travel and adjust its services accordingly,” Tan commented
