Singapore Airlines announces January 2021 schedule

Singapore Airlines will operate 16% of its usual capacity by January 2021, though no new routes or increased frequencies have been loaded for the first month of next year

Singapore Airlines and SilkAir have extended their published passenger flight schedules through to 31st January 2021, extending their planned schedules for December 2020 into the first month of next year. The carriers had already ramped up frequencies on a number of routes in November and December, so maintaining the new ‘status quo’ isn’t too surprising with border restrictions still in place for now.

Melbourne will remain the airline’s busiest route, with 13 weekly connections, ahead of London and Sydney each receiving 12 flights per week.

Overall, the new schedules will lift capacity to around 16% of usual levels in January 2021.


  Headline figures

In total SIA and SilkAir will fly 1,543 passenger flights during January 2021, effectively the same total planned for December 2020 but 70% higher than the 902 flights operated in October 2020.

“By the end of January 2021, the Group’s passenger capacity will reach approximately 16% of its pre-Covid-19 levels”
