Singapore Air halts Greece, Abu Dhabi flights

SINGAPORE (AP) -- Singapore Airlines Ltd. says it will cancel its flights to Greece and Abu Dhabi because of weak passenger demand.

The carrier said in a statement Wednesday that its two weekly flights to Athens and three flights to Abu Dhabi will end Oct. 26.

The airline said it was a difficult decision to cancel service to Greece because it has flown to Athens since 1972. The carrier has flown to Abu Dhabi since 2006.

Singapore Airlines is the world's second-largest carrier by market capitalization. It said last week that it had a loss of $31 million in the first quarter as higher fuel costs and slowing demand growth hurt profits.
