Just wondering for my own information how much down are passenger numbers into and out of Australia if anyone knows. I realise airlines are cutting flights and using smaller aircraft. The reason I am asking is I am travelling to Europe In June for a month and half expecting my flight to be changed in some way. I will be on a Singapore flight so curious as to how full my flight will be..returning on an Etihad flight.

I presume that you are travelling from Sydney, Glen.

The most recent Singapore Airlines schedule update on Routes Online is showing, at worst one daily flight reduction in mid May. However, there has not been any update for SQ past 30 May, 2020:

Quote:
Singapore Airlines and Silk Air since last week filed frequency reductions for service between March and May 2020. The following is a list of reductions by weekly frequencies, based on comparison of frequency listed for the week of 13JAN20 vs the week of 01MAR20

Singapore – Sydney Reduce from 35 weekly to:
15MAR20 – 21MAR20 34 weekly
03MAY20 – 09MAY20 31 weekly
10MAY20 – 16MAY20 28 weekly
17MAY20 – 23MAY20 30 weekly
24MAY20 – 30MAY20 29 weekly

Singapore Airlines on 03MAR20 announced further service cuts between March and May 2020. The additional adjustment will appear on Airlineroute early next week.

There hasn't been any reductions to SYD announced by Etihad that I have seen. I hope this helps.

The northern hemisphere is coming out of flu season as we go in, on that basis I don’t expect we have seen the true impact on travel mid year!
