Singapore Airlines: "Load factors improved across all regions, bolstered by strong leisure travel demand during the Lebaran/Hari Raya holidays, coupled with returning summer traffic. Traffic to West Asia & Africa also saw improvements with the shift in the Lebaran/Hari Raya period. The operating environment remains challenging, however, and ongoing efforts to stimulate demand to boost loads will continue to place downward pressure on yields."
