SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) reported a decline in passenger carriage in February, partly on the back of softer demand for Bangkok due to the political protests.

SIA - which typically operates around five flights a day to Bangkok - had announced previously that it was cutting flights to the troubled Thai capital following weaker demand.

In February, SIA's systemwide passenger carriage (measured in revenue passenger kilometres) declined 2.1 per cent while capacity was scaled back by 0.4 per cent (measured in available seat kilometres). As a result, this caused passenger load factor (PLF) to decline 1.4 percentage points to 76.8 per cent, while the number of passengers carried decreased by 1.8 per cent year-on-year to 1.4 million.
