SINGAPORE Airlines' (SIA) systemwide passenger carriage (in revenue passenger kilometres) last month edged up 0.4 per cent, outpaced by a 1.9 per cent expansion in capacity (in available seat kilometres) which pushed passenger load factor (PLF) downwards.

PLF slipped 1.1 percentage points to 76.7 per cent last month, while the number of passengers carried increased 0.9 per cent year on year to 1.5 million.

"PLF declined across all route regions, except for South-west Pacific," said the carrier in a filing to Singapore Exchange yesterday. "Passenger carriage increased for most regions, except for Americas and East Asia, but the increase could not keep pace with capacity injection."
