Any chance Scoot fly to Seoul in the future?

Cheaper fare to Singapore would be nice. More option as well.

China Cargo codeshares with SIA Cargo
(WCARN.com, July 12)

Quote:
Recently, China Cargo Airlines Limited and Singapore Airlines Cargo signed a codeshare agreement on freight services between Shanghai and Singapore, which greatly enhances both parties' competitiveness on that route.

"The codeshare partnership enables Singapore Cargo to better take part in Chinese cargo market. Meanwhile, it will provide customers with more flexible and high-quality services; the unified interface for ordering cabin space offers more choices for customers." said the SIA Cargo president Chen Kaiping.

I cannot understand SCOOT at the moment. Why launch a low cost carrier with no destinations? Do they think people are only interested in flying to Australia or Tokyo?

Places like CCU, MAA, CMB, RGN, REP, KMG, LIJ, CTU, JZH, HKT, PEN, DPS - most of which should not be on Singapore Airlines or Silkair's routemaps.

I would prefer to use Scoot rather than AirAsia, but really it's no competition at the moment is it? You can fly everywhere on AK and nowhere on TZ!

Scoot mainly focuses on the medium longhaul market with Bangkok as the only shorthaul destination to keep their planes in the air(other shorthaul destinations are served by Tiger) and scoot has only two planes at the moment so they can't launch that many destinations

SilkAir to order Boeing 737s.

Quote:
SILKAIR TO ORDER UP TO 68 NEW BOEING AIRCRAFT

Press Release

3 August 2012

SILKAIR TO ORDER UP TO 68 NEW BOEING AIRCRAFT

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has signed a letter of intent to purchase up to 68 new aircraft from Boeing.

The order is the largest in SilkAir's history and remains subject to the negotiation of a final purchase agreement.

It will comprise firm orders for 54 aircraft and purchase rights for another 14. Firm orders will comprise 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 Boeing 737 MAX 8s. SilkAir will have the flexibility to switch to other variants within the B737 product range.

The firm-ordered aircraft are valued at US$4.9 billion based on current Boeing list prices. Deliveries are due to begin in 2014 and continue to 2021, by which time the Airline's fleet will have more than doubled in size.

SilkAir currently operates 21 A319s and A320s, with three more A320s due for delivery by the end of 2013. The new aircraft will cater for both growth and fleet renewal.

SilkAir Chief Executive Marvin Tan said the size of the order reflects the Airline's confidence in the Asia-Pacific air travel market, helping the carrier maintain annual double-digit percentage growth rates through the end of this decade and beyond.

"We continue to see very strong growth within the region and these new aircraft will position SilkAir well. They will enable us to spread our wings to even more destinations and increase capacity on existing routes, contributing to the overall SIA Group network," said Mr Tan.

"The selection of the B737 follows detailed evaluations and extensive negotiations with both Airbus and Boeing. The order will enable us to maintain a young and modern fleet, with an aircraft that has a proven track record of strong customer appeal, excellent reliability and low operating costs."

The B737-800 is the best-selling variant in Boeing's popular Next Generation family of single-aisle aircraft. The B737 MAX is currently in development and will be the latest generation of the product line.

They currently operate an all Airbus fleet consisting of 6 A319s and 15 A320s.

Singapore Airlines revamps cabins
AFP – 1 hr 4 mins ago
Singapore Airlines has said it plans to introduce revamped seats and cabin interiors with an upgraded in-flight entertainment in a bid to stay ahead of Asian and Middle East rivals in the premium travel market.

SIA is regarded as a trendsetter in aviation and is famous for its cabin service, but rivals like Cathay Pacific in Asia and Etihad, Emirates and Gulf Air from the Middle East have been closing the gap while offering lower fares.

It said Tuesday it has hired BMW Group subsidiary DesignworksUSA and James Park Associates, two renowned design companies, to develop "next generation of inflight cabin products" slated to be introduced next year.
The changes will include revamped seats, redesigned cabins and upgraded entertainment platforms as new passenger planes from Boeing and Airbus begin arriving.

Emphasis will be on first and business class which generate the bulk of its revenue but the airline said it will not overlook its economy class which will offer improved seat and headrest comfort.

New Boeing 777-300 ERs are expected to enter service in the second half of next year, followed progressively by Airbus A350s and Boeing 787s, the airline said.

But the airline said its current fleet, which includes Airbus A380 superjumbos, can also be retrofitted with the new designs.

"In this business, if you are staying still, you are moving backwards as your competitors can catch up quickly ," said Tan Pee Teck, SIA's senior vice president for products and services.

"It is therefore important to always be planning for the future."

Analysts say the airline is being squeezed in the first and business class section by full-service carriers and in the economy class by low cost airlines.

"Relatively speaking, Singapore Airlines is losing its competitive edge in premium Asia travel not because it's a bad airline, but because the others -- like Emirates -- are becoming so good," said Jonathan Galaviz, managing director of Galaviz & Co which follows the global airline and tourism sector.

SIA's net profit in the year to March 2012 slumped 69 percent to Sg$336 million ($269 million), after a rare loss in the fiscal fourth-quarter due to high oil prices and rising competition.

If a route is not heralded as being lucrative enough for parent company SQ, then it should go straight to TZ. With MI being in the mix as well, it kinda creates an identity crisis for the company: SQ = premium, MI = regional, TZ = LCC. IMO, there is no need for the middle-tier.

Who said that an airline (like SQ) can only have two subsidaries(normally that being a FSC and a[n] LCC)(why can't three work?)?

Singapore Airlines to spend US$16m upgrading lounges
Posted: 23 August 2012 1349 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines said Thursday it will spend more than S$20 million (US$16 million) to upgrade its airport lounges worldwide in a bid to stay ahead of the competition.

The announcement of the upgrade came nine days after the airline, facing fiercer rivalry from Asian and Middle Eastern carriers, unveiled plans to introduce revamped seats and cabin interiors as well as improved in-flight entertainment.

The upgrade of its "SilverKris" lounges will be carried out over five years starting from the middle of next year when the facility at Sydney airport will be fitted with a new design concept, SIA said in a statement.

"We hope to replicate that 'home away from home' experience in our lounges, along with the warm Asian hospitality that Singapore Airlines is renowned for," SIA senior vice president for products and services Tan Pee Teck said.

The airline has 15 SilverKris lounges at airports worldwide, including one in New Delhi -- to be officially opened next month -- and in Seoul which is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

SIA is regarded as a trendsetter in aviation and is famous for its cabin service, but rivals like Cathay Pacific in Asia and Etihad, Emirates and Gulf Air from the Middle East have been closing the gap while offering lower fares.

It said last week it had hired BMW Group subsidiary DesignworksUSA and James Park Associates, two renowned design companies, to develop the "next generation of inflight cabin products" expected to be introduced next year.

The changes will include revamped seats, redesigned cabins and upgraded entertainment platforms as new passenger planes from Boeing and Airbus begin arriving.
