Singapore Air Traffic Rebound is On Track for 2022
Good news on the Singapore air traffic front. The country’s traffic volume is almost one-third of what it was pre-Covid.
This is two weeks after Singapore fully reopened its borders. With air traffic volume on track to achieve its 50% target, Singapore’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAAS) is confident moving forward.
Singapore fully reopened its borders to those who were fully vaccinated beginning in April. Traffic to and from Malaysia, Australia, Thailand, and Indonesia were especially strong.
The Singapore Airlines Group (SIA) also experienced a substantial increase in demand for its Scoot airline in the month of March too. Scoot is SIA’s budget airline option.
A Boost in Singapore Air Traffic for International and Local Travellers
Singapore and PR holders make up almost one-third of the air traffic volume. Flights in April increased by 38% compared to the 29% recorded in March.
PT Batik Air Asia, Myanmar Airways International, and Air New Zealand have started rescheduling passenger flights heading into Singapore. The boost in Singapore air traffic was also thanks to the re-established air links with several cities. These include Madurai, Kota Kinabalu, Danang, Cairns, and Riyadh.
CAAS anticipates that the volume of air traffic is only going to increase even more during the upcoming public and school holidays. The public holidays include Hary Raya Puasa and May Day. In anticipation of this demand, aviation unions and companies are already ramping up manpower and operations to accommodate the volume.
Career Promotions and Recruitment Events
With Singapore air traffic and the aviation field in general gaining momentum, CAAS is already on top of this. With that, CAAS is launching OneAviation Careers. It is a recruitment and promotion event happening at the Suntec City Convention Centre in Singapore.
At least 15 aviation companies are going to partake in the event. This includes the likes of Rolls Royce and Singapore Airlines. Students and prospective jobseekers seeking a career in the aviation field are especially encouraged to attend. The event will take place on May 27 and 28.
