Scoot airlines to increase fleet, expand routes
By Yvonne Chan | Posted: 31 January 2013 2326 hrs

SINGAPORE: Scoot, the low cost long haul subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, has flown about 600,000 passengers after seven months of operation.

This means carrying about 85,000 travellers per month.

The carrier also has a passenger load factor of about 81 per cent and currently flies to eight destinations, including Tianjin, Shenyang and the Gold Coast.

Speaking at the "world's low cost airlines" conference on Thursday, CEO of Scoot Airlines Campbell Wilson was asked if the airline will be increasing its fleet and expanding its routes to cope with the ever growing demand for low cost travel in Southeast Asia.

Mr Wilson said: "We're taking a fifth aircraft this year end of May, early June, and we'll use that to add two or three more routes to the network. In terms of partnership, currently we work most closely with Tiger Airways, they have affiliates in other countries that we would look to expand our routes to. And furthermore there are airlines outside of Singapore and indeed outside of Southeast Asia that are quite interested to work with us. But its too premature to reveal who."

Scoot has introduced ScooTV, streaming inflight entertainment for passengers, and was the first to introduce iPads for rent.

Mr Wilson said it does not add to their costs at all.

"We only introduce these where there is a business benefit to us. We target to get over 20 per cent of our revenue from ancillary products of which entertainment is one. But as well as earning us money, it also helps the passenger. It's a win-win all round," he said.

Mr Wilson also commented on Boeing's Dreamliner despite the latest safety hiccups.

"The next aircraft we take this year is a 777-200 and the ones after that are 787s. Boeing is keeping us fully informed of what's happening with the 787 investigations and rectification and we are confident in their ability to resolve the issue under the purview of the regulators, and we look forward to taking the aircraft on schedule in November 2014. We have commitment for 20 Dreamliners," he said.

Several Scoot flights were recently hit by a series of passenger complaints stemming from flight delays and alleged technical faults.

Mr Wilson said: "The challenges are real. When you have a small fleet flying high utilisation. Anything whether its a weather delay, whether its a typhoon, fog in Tianjin today or storms in Gold Coast on Monday, they do affect aircraft schedules and sometimes have consequential effects. There's no avoiding that with a small fleet, but the high utilisation of aircraft is what allows us to offer low fares, so it's a bit of a quid pro quo.

"We're very clear to people what it is that we offer, we also make no secret what it is that we give in terms of compensation. The compensation is not just S$50, it can be more ranging to a full refund depending on the circumstances.

"Clearly, unit costs is unavoidable for operating an airline, unit revenue and engagement. You can't operate a business if you don't have low cost, you can't cover those cost if you don't have decent revenue and you don't have revenue if people don't like you."

The five A340-500's will go back to Airbus by the end of the year and if i'm not wrong a few more 777-200ER will be tranferred to Scoot before they get their 787's

SIA says third-quarter net profit up 6.0%
Posted: 07 February 2013 1906 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Thursday its third-quarter net profit rose six per cent year-on-year as the sale of aircraft and spare engines as well as interest income offset the impact of a business slowdown.

Net profit for the last three months of 2012 totalled S$143 million, SIA said, attributing the rise to gains from the "sale of aircraft, spares and spare engines, and higher net interest income".

Revenue however eased 0.40 per cent to S$3.86 billion, and the carrier warned of tough times ahead for the passenger and cargo markets.

"The outlook for international air travel demand continues to be challenging and the cargo market remains depressed amid the troubled European economy and the weak recovery in the United States," the airline said.

"Loads and yields of both passenger and cargo businesses are expected to remain under pressure, while the price of jet fuel continues to be at a historical high," it added.

"The depreciation of revenue-generating currencies against the Singapore dollar poses yet another challenge."

Fuel expenses totalled S$1.5 billion during the quarter, accounting for more than 38 per cent of revenues.

SIA said its non-operating gains were dented by S$20 million in fines for its subsidiary SIA Cargo in relation to civil penalty proceedings "in respect of competition law matters in Australia and New Zealand".

The cargo arm of SIA was slapped with the fines last year after it admitted to colluding with various other airlines, including Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific, to fix prices for air cargo.

SIA -- widely regarded as a bellwether for full-service airlines -- has implemented a series of cost-cutting measures amid a global industry slowdown.

In the latest measure, the airline asked 76 foreign pilots to leave by June 30 before the expiry of their employment contracts.

It had earlier called for captains and first officers to volunteer for unpaid leave and has also frozen its intake of cadet pilots.
