Singapore Airlines: "The year-on-year increase in capacity arose from the injection of additional frequencies to Americas (Newark and Houston), North Asia (Hong Kong, Beijing and Incheon), West Asia and Africa (Mumbai, Delhi, Dhaka, Male and Colombo) and the introduction of new services to Munich. All regions except Europe and West Asia and Africa recorded improvements in PLFs over the same month last year. The earlier commencement of Ramadan this year partially contributed to the lower PLF for West Asia and Africa." Company Statements. Source: Singapore Airlines, 15-Sep-2010.
