ingapore 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.
