Singapore-Europe aviation market: capacity growth resumes, driven by long haul LCCs, Qantas' return

Premium Analysis

The launch of new long haul low cost routes and new, or resumed, full service routes has led to a resumption of growth in the Singapore-Europe market. Singapore-Europe nonstop passenger traffic increased by 9% in 2017, marking the first time in several years that Europe traffic grew faster than the Singapore-wide average.

Singapore-Europe passenger traffic declined by 8% in 2013, and by 3% in 2014. Singapore-Europe traffic was flat in 2015 and 2016.

Singapore-Europe traffic should experience another large gain in 2018 as Qantas resumes Singapore-London and Lufthansa resumes Singapore-Munich. LOT Polish Airlines is also launching Singapore-Warsaw, becoming the ninth European airline to serve Singapore, and Scoot is launching Berlin, which will become the 19th European city served from Singapore.
