Singapore Airlines battles new Qantas arm
Published 7:28 AM, 24 Oct 2011

Qantas Airways Ltd has encountered new resistance in its push to create a new premium Asian subsidiary, with Singapore Airlines angered by a move from the Singapore Economic Development Board to clear Qantas' plans for the new brand, according to The Australian Financial Review.

According to the newspaper, the Qantas proposal has been discussed at ministerial level in Singapore, and was recently debated by the government's cabinet office.

SA plans to lobby its government to block the deal, determined to be the sole carrier operating out of Changi Airport.

Singapore has now asked Qantas to submit more information on the economic benefits of tis plans to Singapore, according to the AFR.

Singapore Airlines to unveil new low-cost carrier on Nov 1
On Tuesday October 25, 2011, 5:30 am EDT

SINGAPORE, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines Ltd will unveil the name of its new low-cost carrier and some of the destinations it will fly to on November 1, the company said on Tuesday.

SIA, the world's second-largest airline by market value, has provided little information about the new carrier, although the Straits Times newspaper has said it will start operations in April with one Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

The new long-haul carrier plans to operate 14 aircraft by mid-2016, the paper added.

SIA is already the largest shareholder in short-haul budget carrier Tiger Airways Holdings , and the new long-haul carrier will enable it to better compete with rivals such as AirAsia and JetStar, a unit of Qantas . (Reporting by Kevin Lim)

SIA unveils long-haul budget carrier
Posted: 01 November 2011 1150 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) has launched a budget carrier that will fly on medium and long-haul routes, including to Australia and China.

The airline, named Scoot, will begin flights from mid-2012 with a fleet of four Boeing B777-200 aircraft purchased from parent company SIA.

"Scoot is for you," said the new carrier's chief executive Campbell Wilson.

It is "not an everyday airline name because this is not an everyday airline," he told a media conference.

The budget airline is expected to have 14 planes by 2016, with longer term plans to fly to India, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Wilson told AFP after the news conference that Scoot is unable to fly to the United States initially because of the B777-200's limitations, but he was not ruling out serving the US market in the future.

Scoot is wholly-owned by SIA but will be managed independently.

Analysts have said SIA is moving to tap into a growing consumer demand for low-cost travel over longer distances as most of Asia's low-cost carriers cover short-haul routes.

Scoot is expected to compete directly with AirAsia X, the long-haul affiliate of Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia and British tycoon Richard Branson's Virgin Group.

AirAsia X flies to several destinations including London, Taipei, Tehran, Paris, Seoul, Tokyo and a number of cities in China and India.

Scoot said it will offer airfares up to 40 per cent lower than full-service carriers.

It plans to recruit pilots and staff from outside Singapore Airlines.

SIA already has a short-haul, full-service unit called SilkAir, which travels to tourist destinations in Asia and has a stake in Asian budget carrier Tiger Airways.

SIA, regarded as a barometer for the industry, earned a profit of S$1.09 billion ($866 million) in the year to March 2011 on revenues of S$14.5 billion.

SQ still operates B772ER to Amsterdam. When they will upgrade this sector to 77W?

SIA plane veers off runway in Munich
Published on Nov 3, 2011
By Tham Yuen-C

A Singapore Airlines flight with 158 people on board veered off the runway right after landing in the Munich Airport on Thursday, but none of the passengers or crew were injured.

The Boeing 777 airplane had veered off the runway shortly after landing in the afternoon, coming to rest on the grass.

SIA said the flight, SQ327, departed Manchester at around 9am (5pm Singapore time) and arrived at Munich at around 12.10pm (7.10pm Singapore time). It was scheduled to depart Munich for Singapore at 1.10pm.

The runway at the airport was closed after the incident and is expected to reopen at night.

Scoot to fly daily to Sydney
By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 01 December 2011 1032 hrs

SINGAPORE : Passengers travelling from Singapore's Changi Airport to Sydney, Australia will soon have a cheaper alternative.

That is because Scoot - Singapore's first long-haul budget carrier - has chosen Sydney as its first destination for daily service.

Scoot will be the first low-cost long-haul carrier to serve Sydney from Singapore.

For now, only one flight will ply the route daily, when the carrier begins operations in June next year.

The airline will use the Boeing 777 aircraft and this will mean a capacity of some 400 seats per flight.

The no-frills flight will leave from Changi Airport at about 1.30am.

On why Sydney was chosen, Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, said: "It gives Singaporeans a whole new travel option, it is a new type of carrier flying between Singapore and Sydney. Our airfares are 40 per cent cheaper than the full legacy airlines, so that opens up a whole new market for itself.

"No longer (does) Sydney need to be something you plan six months in advance, travel once a year, or once every two years. With the type of airfares we offer, with the type of simplicity we offer, the name Scoot means basically get up and go, you can travel as you want and when you want.

"In eight years in Singapore, the no-frills market has gone up from 0 to 20 per cent, and we can do exactly the same here. Sydney has a huge untapped potential inbound and outbound, no-frills travellers."

Scoot's parent company, Singapore Airlines (SIA), already flies four times daily to Sydney.

So will Scoot's presence hurt SIA, a full-service airline?

Mr Wilson said: "Not at all. We have been set up for a reason and that is to bring incremental business to the group. That increment is obviously the volume of our capacity, we are not designed to cannibalise from anyone, we will fill our aircraft on the target market that we are attracting, so it is new business. Comparing ourselves to our legacy airline is just a false comparison."

He added: "Sydney is well served by SIA, but it is not well served by long-haul, low-cost airlines. There is no low-cost airline serving (the) Singapore-Sydney (sector). We have been established to attract and target a new market segment, one that it is not being well served by traditional legacy airlines and therefore it is a perfect market for us to operate into, there is large volume, very attractive cities."

Scoot's presence in Sydney is also expected to boost tourism numbers between the two cities.

Already, Singapore is Australia's sixth largest international tourism market.

Barry O'Farrell, premier of New South Wales, said: "Singapore is a global city in its own way. This service will link those two cities and provide greater competition and provide greater price points for tourists. This is expected to add some AUD 150 million to the state's economy."

Scoot will receive support from tourism officials in Sydney, with a two-year marketing plan in the pipeline.

"Scoot is slated to announce more destinations very soon. It is exploring other Australian destinations like Victoria and Queensland. Outside Australia, it is also looking at China, India and New Zealand.

All destinations will be revealed by the time ticket sales begin by March next year.

Meanwhile, recruitment is also progressing well. Scoot said it has nearly hired its full set of 52 pilots needed.

As for cabin crew, those with experience are slated to go for training, while another recruitment exercise for those without significant experience will begin early next year.

By Karamjit Kaur


Scoot, Singapore Airlines' new low-cost carrier, has unveiled its cabin crew uniform.

When the airline starts operating in the middle of the year, stewardesses will don black and yellow dresses while the men will be in a similarly coloured T-shirt.

Scoot will fly long-haul routes starting with Sydney, Australia as its first destination and promises fares up to 40 per cent less than what full-service carriers charge.

What does it take to be a part of Scoot's cabin crew?
By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 15 January 2012 1038 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore's first long-haul budget carrier Scoot said it could fly to five or more destinations other than Sydney, when it begins operations in June.

In an exclusive interview with MediaCorp, Scoot said it has also recruited the 51 pilots it needs.

The pilots - 26 captains and 25 first officers - will undergo training soon.

It has also hired half of the 240 cabin crew staff it requires.

Scoot received more than a thousand online applications for its first of three mass recruitment drives for cabin crew.

The airline is open to hiring those without any prior experience.

To make the cut, all they need to have is "Scootitude".

One of the candidates, Ms Nicole Yang said: "I have the Scootitude - good attitude and a big smile."

And that took all of a five-hour process to prove.

Candidates were first tested on their verbal and mathematical skills, followed by a problem-solving task as a group, while their every move is assessed by staff from Scoot.

After that is a test on public-speaking.

Candidates face a final round of interviews before being informed on the same day if they made the cut.

In the first recruitment drive, only about one in two candidates were offered a job.

Ng Ju Li, Scoot's head of cabin crew, said: "We are not a stereotypical airline that looks only for beauties of a certain height and weight... all those things are not so important to us.

"They need to be able to converse and entertain passengers to keep them occupied, because we are going medium to long haul, and will need to keep passengers engaged."

Scoot's CEO Campbell Wilson, said: "They are constantly up and down the aisle, and they are constantly selling, because at the end of the day, our model is based on people purchasing services, over and above the very cheap seat that we are selling to begin with."

The typical starting salary for cabin crew working with a budget carrier is about S$2,200. And one difference with Scoot is that compared to most airlines, Scoot's cabin crew will be expected to share rooms during their transit stops.

The next two recruitment drives will take place in February and March.

Singapore Airlines Dec load factor edges up from Nov
Reuters – 2 hours 42 minutes ago

SINGAPORE, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines (SIA) filled 68.6 percent of the space available on its planes for passengers and cargo in December, higher than 67.2 percent reported in November.

Compared with a year ago, the load factor was down 1.2 percentage points as the airline put more capacity into its passenger and cargo business, the world's second largest carrier by market value said on Monday.

SIA's regional unit, SilkAir, reported a 1.4 percentage points fall in passenger load factor to 83.1 percent from a year ago.

Singapore Airlines, 55 percent owned by Singapore state investor Temasek Holdings Pte Ltd, has a market capitalisation of $9.9 billion, second after Air China Ltd.
