London – Asian giant Singapore Airlines said today it will re-establish its footprint in key East Asian markets with additional services and new routes as it witnesses an aggressive demand surge during the post-pandemic recovery phase. Announced.

The airline claims it will take this strategic path as border restrictions in many countries in the Asian region have effectively ended and passenger movements are starting to grow significantly.

It was once known for having the largest market share in continental Asia, offering services across all major hubs and destinations via its mainline Singapore Airlines and LCC Scoot. Carriers had to scale back their networks in the pandemic-era explosion of early 2020.

But after two tough years with uncertainty, border closures and impacts on tourism and business activity, the airline is making a worthy comeback as it faces a post-pandemic recovery on its global aviation platform. I did it.

As the rest of the Asian continent opened its borders to international tourists and the VFR, the airline saw a multi-fold surge in travel patterns within the East Asian market.

This new opportunity has enabled Singapore Airlines and its subsidiary Scoot to meet the demand for international travel for the December holiday season and Chinese New Year.
