SIA's overall load factor dips to 70.2% in July
By Travis Teo | Posted: 15 August 2011 2247 hrs

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines Group on Monday said it filled 70.2 per cent of the space available on its planes for passengers and cargo in July.

The figure, for Singapore Airlines (SIA), SilkAir and SIA Cargo, is slightly lower than the 70.6 per cent achieved in July of last year.

Its passenger load factor on Singapore Airlines dipped by 0.8 percentage point to 81.6 per cent last month.

SilkAir's passenger load factor increased 1.4 percentage points.

SIA's capacity grew by 5.5 per cent in July, against a 4.5 per cent increase in passenger carriage.

SIA's passenger load factors fell mainly on the Americas route region, where the growth in demand was outpaced by the increase in capacity.

SilkAir's passenger load factor on West Asia routes improved compared to the same month last year as market demand remained buoyant in India. However, on East Asia routes, the growth in demand did not keep pace with the capacity increase, resulting in a slight decline in the overall passenger load factor.

In addition, SIA Cargo's load factor improved by 1 percentage point to 65 per cent.

The cargo load factors increased for all regions, except for East Asia.

SIA plane experiences hydraulic problems on landing
Published on Aug 21, 2011

A Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane returning to Singapore from Frankfurt experienced hydraulic problems which affected the steering of its nose wheel when it landed at Changi Airport on Saturday.

An SIA spokesman said Flight SQ325, which departed from Frankfurt on Aug19, experienced a fault with its hydraulic system just after take-off.

This affected the steering of the front wheel, which is used to manoeuvre the aircraft on the ground. In line with standard operating procedures, the spokesman said, airport emergency services were activated at Changi Airport.

The plane landed without incident at Terminal 3 at around 4.15pm, and was towed to its parking bay.

SilkAir to fly to 2 new destinations in October
Posted: 23 August 2011 1802 hrs

SINGAPORE: SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will fly to two new destinations from October.

The carrier said on Tuesday that scheduled passenger services to Bandung, Indonesia will begin on 11 October, while passenger services to Changsha, China will start on 31 October - the latter subject to regulatory approvals.

The Bandung flights will operate three times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays using Airbus A319 aircraft. This will increase to five times weekly during the northern winter season that takes effect from 30 October.

Changsha will be served by three weekly services on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays with Airbus A320 aircraft, said SilkAir.

It said Bandung and Changsha are the 37th and 38th destination respectively in SilkAir's network.

"Earlier this year, on 28 February, we started scheduled services to Pekanbaru, Indonesia and on 1 August Kolkata, India. This will be followed by Koh Samui on 27 September," said the airline's chief executive Marvin Tan.

"Asia looks set for further growth and SilkAir, as the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, is well placed to meet the rising demand for air travel in the region," he added.

SilkAir advised customers who are interested in the two new destinations to note that the cities may not be immediately available in the computer reservations system due to the lead-time required in making system updates.

Tiger Air to get new CEO
Published: 2011/08/30

SINGAPORE: Budget carrier Tiger Airways said yesterday Chin Yau Seng will replace Tony Davis as chief executive in a move that was expected after its Australian business was rocked by a flight suspension due to safety issues.

The leadership change adds to the series of steps Tiger is taking to restore its reputation after the more than one-month flight ban battered its share price and hurt its profitability.

The airline beefed up top management by bringing in Chin, ex-CEO of SilkAir, a regional carrier owned by Singapore Airlines (SIA) , and J Y Pillay, a former SIA executive, as chairman.

It is also raising US$132 million (RM393.36 million) in a rights issue that is 90 per cent underwritten by state investor Temasek and SIA, which collectively own 40 per cent of Tiger. Tiger Air said it will use the money raised to shore up its capital, help it finance its expansion and pay for aircraft it has ordered. - Reuters

Singapore Airlines adds extra flights to Adelaide

SINGAPORE Airlines will fly to Adelaide twice a day, three days a week, boosting tourists this summer.


It will be the first time Adelaide Airport will have more than one flight a day from the same international airline, taking the airport's weekly tally of international services to 36.

In 2007, Singapore Airlines became the first international airline to operate daily flights through Adelaide. Since then Cathay Pacific has operated services from Hong Kong seven days a week, and Malaysia Airlines from Kuala Lumpur six days a week.

Yesterday Singapore Airlines confirmed it would have two flights a day on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays from December 9 to January 31. The move follows lobbying by the South Australian Tourism Commission for additional flights.

For the three new flights, Singapore Airlines will use a wide-body Boeing 777-200 aircraft of 12 business-class and 276 economy seats. It means an additional 864 international seats into Adelaide each week.

SA Tourism Commission destination development manager Nick Jones said this was good news for South Australia.

"Singapore Airlines' decision demonstrates confidence in the market for SA tourism during the peak summer period," he said.

"There is much competition in the region for additional seasonal services and the airline has shown great faith in the SA market."

Mr Jones said SA was set to gain from the key international tourism markets of Europe, Singapore and China through the extra flights and the airline's good flight connections and marketing.

Singapore Airlines' SA manager, Andrew Soo, said 10 flights a week to Adelaide underlined the city's importance to the airline.

The additional flights will arrive at Adelaide Airport at 6.05am and depart at 7.20am, arriving in Singapore at noon, Singapore time.

Mr Soo said SA travellers on the new flights would have a greater choice of connections to destinations such as London and Frankfurt for same-day travel. Singapore Airlines will continue to operate an Airbus A330-300 aircraft on its usual daily flights to and from Adelaide.

Cathay Pacific announced last week it would launch non-stop services from Adelaide to Hong Kong three days a week from November.

The other flights will continue to include a stopover in Melbourne.

Singapore Airlines' latest destination: Social media
Published on Sep 1, 2011
By Karamjit Kaur, Aviation Correspondent


Other airlines have done it and now, Singapore Airlines has decided to embrace social media to establish stronger links with its customers.

On Monday, it will take over an existing, unofficial SIA Facebook page started by a fan in 2006. The airline will also set up its own account on micro-blogging site Twitter.

SIA's spokesman, Mr Nicholas Ionides, told The Straits Times: 'By being on social media, we can reach out to existing and potential customers, converse with them and better understand their needs and aspirations.'

On why the airline did not do so earlier, unlike many other carriers such as Qantas and Malaysia Airlines, he said: 'A combination of factors, among them resources and the long-term viability of specific social media platforms, were considerations that we took into account.'

Tiger finalises agreements to buy stake in Mandala Airlines
By Ryan Huang | Posted: 23 September 2011 2135 hrs

SINGAPORE : Tiger Airways has finalised agreements to purchase a 33 per cent stake in Indonesia's Mandala Airlines.

Tiger Airways' investment in Mandala will be held through its wholly-owned subsidiary in Singapore, Roar Aviation.

Mandala is currently undergoing a financial restructuring process in accordance with Indonesian laws.

The largest shareholder in the restructured Mandala will be the Saratoga group, which will hold a 51 per cent stake.

The remaining 16 per cent will be held by the previous shareholders and creditors of Mandala.

The next stage of the process for completion of the proposed investment involves satisfying conditions precedent, which includes, among others, the parties ratifying certain corporate actions and obtaining regulatory approvals.

Completion is scheduled to take approximately 90 days, after which flight operations are expected to commence.

Acting chief executive officer of Tiger Airways Holdings Limited, Chin Yau Seng, said: "We are pleased to have reached agreement for this transaction, and are excited at the prospect of Mandala resuming operations. We will continue to work closely with our business partner in this venture in order to achieve this."

Sandiaga Uno, founding partner of Saratoga group, said: "We are encouraged by the finalisation of the transaction and we look forward to Mandala resuming its service."

The restructured airline plans to adopt the Tiger Airways business model, and plans to offer low-fare travel to international and domestic Indonesian destinations within a five-hour flying radius.

Like other airlines in the Tiger Airways Group, the restructured airline would also operate Airbus A320 aircraft.

SIA-Virgin Australia airline deal cleared for take-off
Posted: 13 October 2011 0856 hrs

Singapore: The proposed alliance between Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia has been granted a draft approval by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's (ACCC).

The final approval will be made after further submissions from the carriers and other interested parties.

The approval means Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia will be able to take the next step to build an integrated alliance, offering an expanded network and seamless service offerings for travellers.

"We are pleased with the ACCC's draft approval," said Singapore Airlines' Regional Vice-President for South West Pacific, Subhas Menon, adding that the partnership with Virgin Australia "will enable us to deliver a best-in-class travel experience across Australia."

"Today's announcement will be welcome news to leisure and corporate travellers alike who will benefit from the more attractive and competitive travel options this alliance will provide," said Menon in a statement.

Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia lodged an application with the ACCC in June under which the two airlines proposed to codeshare each other's international and domestic flights, coordinate schedules between Singapore and Australia and beyond for seamless connections, engage in joint sales, marketing and distribution activities as well as offer reciprocal frequent flyer programme benefits.

Chief correspondent of Orient Aviation Magazine, Tom Ballantyne, said this is a good opportunity for SIA to tap into Australia's lucrative aviation travel market, which is dominated by Qantas Airways.

Both SIA and Qantas compete on a limited number of routes where there are a number of competitors.

The ACCC said the SIA-Virgin alliance is unlikely to harm competition in the market.
