Singapore Airlines to start daily Yangon service
Agence-France Presse – 7 hours ago

Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Wednesday it will start a daily service to Yangon in October to meet growing business and tourist demand for flights to Myanmar's largest city.

The announcement by one of the world's top airlines comes amid growing international interest in once-isolated Myanmar, which launched political reforms after ending nearly half a century of military rule last year.

"Demand has been growing strongly for both business and leisure travel to Myanmar, and Singapore Airlines looks forward to serving the country for the first time," SIA executive vice president Mak Swee Wah said in a statement.

SIA will take over seven of the 16 flights run every week by its regional wing SilkAir from October 28, using 323-seat Boeing 777-200 aircraft to boost the group's weekly seat capacity to Yangon by 55 percent.

SilkAir uses smaller Airbus A320 planes.

"SIA and SilkAir are constantly looking at new market opportunities and the launch of SIA services enables us to quickly meet the growing demand for travel to this increasingly popular destination," Mak added.

Yangon, the former capital, is the country's biggest city and remains its commercial hub despite the transfer of the seat of power to the remote administrative centre Naypyidaw in 2005.

Myanmar has surprised the international community by freeing political prisoners and launching a series of reforms that have convinced leading Western nations to start rolling back sanctions.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Wednesday it will start a daily service to Yangon in October to meet growing business and tourist demand for flights to Myanmar's largest city.

Singapore Airlines Launches $50 Million In-flight Connectivity Program

Press Release: Singapore Airlines – Thu, 6 Sep, 2012 10:45 AM EDT

NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Singapore Airlines is today formally launching In-Flight Connectivity as part of a $50 million program to bring Internet and mobile data services to customers, even when flying at 35,000ft.

Following a recent soft launch on a limited number of aircraft, In-Flight Connectivity is today available on 14 aircraft in the fleet, including all five Airbus A340-500s which are deployed on the world's longest non-stop flights, between Singapore and both Newark and Los Angeles. Services have also been extended to more markets such as Australia, for which regulatory approvals had not previously been obtained.

Travelers can surf the Internet, send and receive emails on smartphones and other electronic devices, and send and receive SMS text messages[1] with GSM-compatible mobile phones.

Through a partnership with leading connectivity provider OnAir, the technology will be progressively rolled out across all of SIA's long-haul Airbus A380-800, A340-500 and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft over the next two years.
Services are offered on routes on which equipped aircraft are deployed, subject to regulatory approvals from individual countries. A map highlighting availability when flying over specific countries is published in the Airline's KrisWorld in-flight entertainment magazine.

Promotional price plans are also being introduced from today for wireless Internet access. The promotional prices, which will last until November 30, 2012, are $25 for 30 megabytes of data and $10 for 10 megabytes of data. The previous plans cost $29.95 for 26 megabytes and $11.95 for 10 megabytes.

A joint promotion with SingTel also enables SingTel Mobile subscribers to enjoy discounted roaming rates of up to 40% for in-flight text messaging and GPRS data services, as well as up to 20% for incoming and outgoing voice calls. The discounted roaming rates are displayed on SingTel's corporate website and the joint promotion will last until March 31, 2013. For more information, please visit www.singtel.com/dataroam.

"As our customers' preferences towards entertainment and connectivity options change over time, so must we. Mobile and Internet connectivity capabilities are just the start, enabling our customers to stay connected even when flying at 35,000ft. There will be much more investment in the months and years ahead to keep our customers both connected and entertained," said SIA's Senior Vice President Product & Services, Mr. Tan Pee Teck.

"We have always been a leader in embracing technology and are confident that these initiatives will both meet and exceed our customers' high expectations, keeping us at the forefront of airline product innovation."

In addition to the $50 million investment in In-Flight Connectivity services, work is underway to bring the next generation of in-flight entertainment offerings to our customers. This will include the latest hardware systems with new screen and handset technology, in addition to much more video and audio content. Details are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

SilkAir to start Vizag-Singapore non-stop flight from Oct 28

VISAKHAPATNAM, SEPT 18:
SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will commence services from Visakhapatnam to Singapore from October 28.

With this new air link, the global route network of the airlines will grow to 42 in twelve countries, according to G.M Toh, the General Manager of Singapore Airlines (India).

At a press meet here on Tuesday, he said it would be the first international non-stop flight from Vizag and it would boost commerce and trade between the two cities.

Visakhapatnam, he said, was one of the fastest growing cities in India and improved air connectivity would impart impetus to its growth. The flight would be operated thrice a week and depending on the need the frequency would be enhanced, he said.

He said there was daily flight to Singapore from Hyderabad.

The bookings for the Vizag flight would begin from Tuesday, he added.

The fare would be Rs 20,688 (two-way) and it would be applicable to flights between October 20 and November 30.

In response to a question, he said SilkAir was not a low-cost airline and the passengers would have to pay for quality service.

An announcement on the collaboration between Scoot and Tiger Airways.

Tiger Airways & Scoot collaborate to jointly sell tickets
By Brandon Tanoto | Posted: 01 October 2012 2039 hrs

SINGAPORE: Tiger Airways Singapore and Singapore Airlines' long-haul budget airline Scoot, signed a partnership deal to jointly market tickets to destinations served by either firms on Monday.

Tiger Airways is an associate of Temasek Holdings, which is the holding company of Singapore Airlines, Scoot's parents. Singapore Airlines owns 32.7 per cent of Tiger Airways.

Under the agreement, the first phase of the partnership will see the two carriers jointly sell itineraries between Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur, destinations served by Tiger, as well as Sydney and Gold Coast, where Scoot flies.

This trial will enable customers to purchase flight itineraries to various destinations from Australia to highly-visited South East Asian destinations. Passengers will transit in Singapore.

Customers will however, have to pass through immigration and collect their belongings before proceeding to check into the second leg of their flight upon their arrival in Singapore.

The later phase will see customers being able to purchase flight itineraries from South East Asia.

The two budget carriers will also boost this service with a direct connection process to allow customers to continue their journeys without passing through immigration and collecting their baggage.

According to the statement, the joint itineraries from Australia will be on sale from Tuesday for trips from October 15, while those originating from Asia will be available from November 2.

In a joint statement, both airlines said there could be a need for applications for anti-trust immunity as the cooperation deepens in future. This will be sought from the relevant regulatory authorities at the appropriate time as required.

Some news on SIA's freeze on hiring cadet pilots.

Quote:
SIA to freeze hiring of cadet pilots due to temporary surplus
By Yvonne Chan | Posted: 22 October 2012 1858 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) said it will freeze the hiring of cadet pilots due to a temporary surplus of First Officers.

In a statement to Channel NewsAsia, SIA said the company recruits cadets on a three-year lead time basis, and it adjusts cadet recruitment requirements based on its operational environment and other factors such as future aircraft deliveries.

It takes about three years from the time SIA recruits the cadets to the time they become First Officers. The last batch of cadets was recruited early this year.

Analysts Channel NewsAsia spoke to said this was a prudent move by SIA given the current economic uncertainty.

"There have been downturns in the past where SQ has found that it has too many cadet pilots and as a consequence, it has had to retrench cadet pilots or have them go on no-pay leave for lengthy periods of time." said Leithen Francis, an editor at Aviation Week.

"So to avoid a repeat of that situation, I think its prudent that SIA is acting sooner rather than later, by temporarily halting recruitment of cadet pilots. After all, the global economic situation still remains unclear," he added.

SIA denied that the move was linked to a decline in the demand for travel, as reported in The Straits Times newspaper on Monday. SIA also said it has no plans to move its pilots to its regional arm, SilkAir or budget offshoot, Scoot.

News of the hiring freeze comes a week before Singapore's national carrier announces its earnings results for Q3 2012 next Friday.

Singapore orders additional A380s and A350-900s and transfers their Boeing 787 order to Scoot.

Quote:
SIA To Place US$7.5B Order For More A380s and A350s

Singapore Airlines has agreed to order five more Airbus A380s and another 20 A350s for additional capacity growth and fleet renewal.

The firm order commitments are valued at US$7.5 billion based on Airbus’ published list prices. Deliveries are due to begin in 2017.

SIA currently operates 19 A380-800 superjumbos and already had firm orders in place for 20 A350s, for delivery from 2015. As with the earlier A350 order, the A350-900 variant has been selected for the 20 additional aircraft, all powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. Trent 900 engines will power the additional A380s.

“This major order will provide us with additional growth opportunities and is consistent with our longstanding policy of maintaining a young and modern fleet. It demonstrates our commitment to the Singapore hub, and our confidence in the strength of the market for premium full-service travel,” said SIA CEO Mr Goh Choon Phong.

“The aircraft will enable us to further enhance our network, providing more travel options to our customers. They will also feature the next generation of in-flight cabin products to keep us at the forefront of airline product innovation.”

SIA’s A380s now serve 10 destinations, namely Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, New York, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo and Zurich, and they have carried more than 9 million passengers since entering service on 25 October 2007. The A350s are intended for use on medium and long-haul routes.

As part of the deal, Airbus has agreed to acquire SIA’s five A340-500s, which will be removed from service in the fourth quarter of the 2013 calendar year, in line with the Airline’s policy to maintain a young fleet. This will result in the cessation of non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles and between Singapore and Newark, in the absence of replacement aircraft in the SIA fleet with sufficient range and operating economics.

“Although disappointing that we will be halting these services, we remain very committed to the US market. Over the past two years we have increased capacity to both Los Angeles and New York by deploying A380 superjumbos on flights via Tokyo and Frankfurt. We will also continue to explore additional options to enhance our US services,” added Mr Goh.

With the new commitments announced today, SIA will have firm purchase or lease orders in place with Airbus and Boeing for 68 new widebody aircraft, including 15 additional A330-300s and eight additional B777-300ERs ordered last year. This excludes 20 B787s on firm order that will be transferred to low-cost subsidiary Scoot to support its growth plans, as well as regional arm SilkAir’s recent order commitments for at least 54 B737 aircraft.
