Singapore Airlines (SIA) saw an increase of 1.4 million passengers in March 2010, up 9.5% on March 2009.
SIA said it saw an increase in passenger load factor of 11.4%, year on year, to 80.8%, partly as a result of planned reductions in capacity.
The airline cut capacity by 2.2% in March, when compared with the same month last year, by reducing the frequency of flights on a number of routes, as well as terminating flights to Vancouver (via Incheon) and Pakistan.
The airline also transferred its Hyderabad and Penang operations to the SIA subsidiary SilkAir, a short to medium haul regional carrier.
The largest increase in passengers was on SIA's routes between Singapore and Europe, which recorded a rise in passenger load factor of 14.8%, closely followed by flights to the US (13.8%).
