Singapore Airlines suspends some flights amid downturn
Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Wednesday it will suspend some international flights as the worsening global economy takes its toll on travel demand.
Flights to India, Southeast Asia, the United States and Europe will be affected, SIA said in a statement.
"Singapore Airlines is making further adjustments to its route network to better match capacity with demand," it said.
"Where demand falls, capacity adjustments will be made and this process will continue going forward."
It said the changes will be implemented progressively and will apply until the end of March.
Flights between Singapore and the Indian city of Hyderabad will be cut to three times weekly from four, the airline said.
Service between Singapore and New Delhi will be trimmed to five times a week from six, while Mumbai-Singapore service will be cut to four times a week from five.
