SINGAPORE -- Singapore Airlines returned to profit for the three months ended June, helped by a sharp revival in travel demand after regional economies reopen their borders as COVID comes under control. 

The city-state's flagship carrier on Thursday reported a net profit of 370 million Singaporean dollars ($268 million) for the April-June period, recovering from a S$409 million loss it posted the same period a year ago. Sales tripled to S$3.91 billion in the quarter from a year ago.
