It is like looking at the flag from the obverse and converse: naturally, the "usual" way of looking at a flag would be from left to right (which is the obverse). If viewed from the other angle (converse), you will see the entire thing in reverse, thus the Singapore flag viewed in "reverse" on the left-hand side (if viewing the cockpit directly). You will also see that on other flags, like China, the Philippines, and the United States.

To add to that, the reason for this is that ships used to have flags so like most things, planes follow their convention.

SIA passenger load factor rises in February
Posted: 15 March 2013 2310 hrs

The airline said cargo capacity decreased by 15.3 per cent.

Decide your own fare with Scoot's new flights to Seoul
herworldPLUS | Thu, Mar 21 2013



Here's another wallet-friendly way to the city of Kimchi, KPop and all things Korean.

From May 29, budget airline Scoot will launch a new route between Singapore and Seoul, via Taiwan.

Flights from Singapore will fly from Changi Airport Terminal 2; Singapore travellers will transit at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei, before flying on to the Incheon International Airport in Seoul. Flights from Seoul on Scoot will also make a transit stop at the Taoyuan airport. Scoot flights between Singapore and Seoul are expected to run thrice a week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Airfare tickets from Seoul to Singapore and Taiwan will go on sale at a later date.

Come March 25, do keep an eye out for this Scoot launch sale. Scoot air tickets from Singapore to Seoul will go on sale at a special launch price from 5pm on March 25 to 11.59pm on March 28.

Scoot's Facebook fans can even have a hand in deciding on the launch airfare prices. From March 22 to 24, "like" Scoot on Facebook and join in Scoot's "You Decide the Fare" online campaign. More sign-ups will lead to lower airfare prices when the Singapore-Seoul airfare goes on sale on March 25.

Once you're a Scoot Facebook fan, you'll gain early access to the launch fares; the same goes for those on Scoot's mailing list too.

Last year, the "You Decide the Fare" campaign culminated in $88 launch fares to Sydney and Gold Coast. If the 2012 campaign is any indication, savvy Singapore travellers should definitely keep tabs on the Scoot page this March.

For more updates, "like" Scoot on Facebook at www.facebook.com/flyscoot or join Scoot's mailing list at www.flyscoot.com.

Looks like Scoot took up last South Korea-Singapore slots.

No Jetstar for Seoul.

Jetstar could always fly to other places (it is an Australian airline after all...)

SIA steward arrested in Sydney for alleged drug offence
By Ng Jing Yng | Posted: 23 March 2013 0645 hrs

SINGAPORE: A Singapore Airlines (SIA) cabin crew member was arrested last Sunday at Sydney International Airport after he allegedly tried to bring in 1.6kg of heroin.

Nicholas Tan Ngat Liang, 50, was a leading steward who was believed to be on duty during the flight from Singapore to Sydney.

In response to TODAY's queries, a spokesperson from the Australian Federal Police confirmed that a 50-year-old Singaporean was arrested on Sunday and has been charged with "importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug, namely heroin". "The man was arrested for attempting to import 1.6kg of heroin into Australia," the spokesperson said.

In Australia, the offence carries a maximum penalty of life imprisonment and/or an A$825,000 fine (S$1.1 million). Tan's case was first mentioned in a New South Wales court on Monday.

Responding to TODAY's queries, SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides said: "We can confirm that a member of our cabin crew was detained recently in Sydney by the police. As it is a police matter, it would not be appropriate for us to provide further comment."

A spokesperson from Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the ministry has so far not received any request to extend its assistance on the matter.

When this reporter visited Tan's condo in Simei on Friday, a man and a woman who answered the door declined to comment, saying that it was "not the right time".

The Singapore Police Force said that cabin crew members and pilots are "subjected to the same level of checks as departing passengers prior to boarding the aircraft". It added: "The authorities conduct screening on persons and their hand-carry baggage. Checked baggage is also subjected to screening upon check-in at the departure hall."

An SIA flight steward, who wanted to be known only as Mr Lim, said that at Sydney International Airport, random checks - which occur about "50 per cent of the time" - are conducted on cabin crew after their flights touch down.

According to the Australian Federal Police website, there were 332 seizures involving heroin between 2009 and May 31, 2010.

There have been previous reported cases of Singaporeans who were caught in Australia's airports for trying to bring in drugs. In August 2009, a Singaporean man was sentenced to a jail term of 11 years and three months for importing 4.3kg of heroin from Kuala Lumpur. The drug was concealed in food items. - TODAY

There's still Jetstar Hong Kong and Japan to grow with to tap into the Korean market. Got to watch this space.

Correct. I think Jestar Asia wanted to expand in to Seoul, but now Scoot took up last remaining slots Koreans let Singapore airlines have. The rest is naturally owned by Singapore airline.

They still have Jetstar Hong Kong and Jetstar Japan to offer one stop services to Korea from Singapore, and two stop from Australia.

There is a talk that Singapore Airlines would resume Singapore-Surabaya in the future. If this materialized, SilkAir will stop the Singapore-Surabaya service.

Singapore Airlines have started serving Surabaya since 1991, with Airbus A310-300. When their A310 was retired, they swapped to Boeing 777-200. Since the aircraft is too big for Surabaya route, Singapore Airlines stopped serving Surabaya in 2004.
But now, they have something smaller than Boeing 777-200: Airbus A330-300.

SIA adds more flights to Indonesian cities
By
Nisha Ramchandani

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is beefing up services to Indonesia from July by adding daily flights to Surabaya as well as boosting frequencies to popular destinations Jakarta and Bali.

"The Indonesian economy is growing and this has increased demand for both business and leisure travel," said Lee Wen Fen, SIA's acting senior vice-president (marketing planning).

From 26 July, SIA will take over one of two daily Surabaya flights - presently operated by subsidiary SilkAir - and will operated 285-seat Airbus A330s on the route. This is expected to raise the total SIA and SilkAir capacity on the route by some 48 per cent.

In addition, SIA will also add a ninth daily service to the capital city of Jakarta and a fourth daily service to Bali.
