Update 29th April Singapore Airlines will now not sell passenger tickets on SIN-BKK flights from 4th May to 31st May 2020, following an extension of the incoming flights ban by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand. Affected flights will therefore carry cargo only, with BKK-SIN sectors also accepting passengers.

On Monday this week Singapore Airlines announced its limited flight schedule for May 2020, replicating April’s skeleton network of 15 cities with approximately 70 weekly flights. Today the airline has stretched the same flying schedule out by another month, extending 96% capacity cuts to its passenger services all the way to 30th June 2020.

In addition to the 324 Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passenger flights programmed for May 2020, there will be an equivalent schedule of 313 flights in June 2020. June has one fewer day than May, accounting for the small difference in total services, since the actual flying programme remains effectively identical across both months.

There would normally be around 16,000 Singapore Airlines flights and 6,600 SilkAir flights in May and June 2020 combined.

Scoot has still to reveal what it’s flying schedule will be beyond its current passenger network
