Singapore Airlines has seen its number of passengers increase, despite the current economic climate.
The numbers carried on its flights rose by 3.6 per cent in July to 1.68 million when compared with the same period last year, the company said.
Much of this increase could be due to increased capacity, as the airline has recently implemented Airbus A-380 jumbo jets on some routes, including flights to Sydney and Tokyo.
It is the second piece of good news for Singapore Airlines in just over a week – it was recently announced that the company had scooped best airline and best business class at the annual Skytrax awards, beating off competition from Air New Zealand and British Airways.
Singapore Airlines is the national airline of the country and operates a hub at Singapore Changi airport.
It has a strong presence in south-east Asia, east Asia, south Asia and the so-called Kangaroo Route markets.
