Earlier today Singapore Airlines announced a radical cut to its flying schedules for April 2020, grounding 185 of its 196 aircraft across the three SIA Group airlines and scaling back capacity by an astonishing 96% during the month.

The airline has now confirmed the passenger services it still plans to operate across the SIA and SilkAir brands between 29th March and 11th April 2020, the first two weeks of the northern summer season.

Further cancellations from 12th April 2020 have not yet been announced.

Just 82 74 Singapore Airlines flights and 16 2 SilkAir services will operate during the 14-day period, the first phase of announced cuts, which would normally see around 5,000 services flown by the two airlines.

Numbers updated on 24th March from latest information.


Flights still operating

Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will be running the following flights to and from just seven cities on their respective networks between 29th March and 11th April 2020.

All other flights not listed below are cancelled during this period.
