    In March 2024, the SIA Group continued to see strong passenger traffic and load factors across all route regions. Group passenger traffic grew by 13.9 per cent from a year ago while capacity increased by 15.5 per cent.

Consequently, the cargo load factor came in at a monthly high of 60.0 per cent for FY2023/24, 4.9 percentage points higher than a year before.
