SIA cuts flights to Japan

SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) will drop one of four daily flights to Tokyo starting Sunday due to reduced travel demand in the wake of Japan’s nuclear crisis.

In a statement on its website, the carrier said that SQ635 and SQ636 operating between Singapore and Haneda would be suspended from March 27, while SQ633 and SQ634 on the same route would continue to run.

The airline’s two other daily flights to Narita, SQ11 and SQ12, will operate as usual.

SIA did not say when full services to Japan were expected to resume.

The carrier is also postponing the introduction of Airbus A380 services on SQ12 and SQ11 between Singapore and Los Angeles via Narita until further notice. The flights will continue to operate with Boeing 747-400 aircraft.
