Tata SIA airline venture aims for first flight in October


New Delhi: Tata SIA Airlines Ltd , the joint venture between Tata Sons Ltd and Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA), expects to start flights in India in the Hindu festive month of October, having secured a no-objection certificate from the aviation ministry to begin operations.
The airline plans to launch flights in early October, a person familiar with the plan said on condition of anonymity.
The airline was granted a no-objection certificate by the aviation ministry last week—the most critical step in the process of obtaining an airline permit from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). It secured approvals from the home ministry and the foreign investment promotion board earlier.
Tata SIA Airlines will join Air India Ltd, Jet Airways (India) Ltd, IndiGo, SpiceJet Ltd, GoAir and Air Costa in India’s airline industry.
It will time its entry with the start of what is traditionally the most profitable period for airlines in India. The October-December quarter, which includes festivals like Dussehra, Diwali and Christmas and the year-end vacations, is peak travel season.
The grant of an airline permit by the DGCA can take more than three months and is subject to the airline having in place the required technical capabilities, staff strength, engineering set-up, and operational and security procedures.
The airline has said it will soon send its application to the DGCA for an airline licence.
The airline is working on multiple elements simultaneously under its new chief executive officer-designate Phee Teik Yeoh, who moved to India from Singapore Airlines late last year for the joint venture.
Yeoh is supervising a 20-member Tata SIA Airlines team from a hotel suite in Gurgaon, on the outskirts of Delhi, as the company searches for office space that’s close to Indira Gandhi International Airport’s swank Terminal 3, which will be the airline’s hub.
Tata Sons, the holding company of the $109 billion Tata group, has a 51% stake in the airline and Singapore Airlines the remainder. The joint venture entails an initial investment of $100 million. Most of the top level hiring is almost over. Most positions critical to the airline will be filled by personnel from existing Tata group companies and Singapore Airlines.
These include chief financial officer Niyant Maru, ex-CFO at Tata Realty and Infrastructure Ltd. Chief human resources officer Varadarajan Srinivasan has moved from Tata Teleservices Ltd. The position of legal head is sill open.
Positions relating to airline expertise have been filled by personnel from Singapore Airlines. Besides Yeoh, senior vice-president for operations Roshan Joshi has moved from Singapore Airlines.
The airline is also hiring a chief strategy officer, whose name is yet to be made public because the person is still serving the notice period in another airline.
The airline has made offers to senior pilots, who typically have a longer notice period of six months to serve to join another airline.
Since the airline will be using the Airbus A320s, 20 of them on lease to start with, it is likely to source most of its technical workforce like pilots and engineers from IndiGo, Air India and GoAir, which use the same aircraft.
In pilot recruitment, Tata SIA Airlines will be competing with Etihad Airways PJSC, which has started hiring A320 pilots from India, promising them a promotion to flying bigger jets like the Airbus A380 and Airbus A330 besides better perks as inducements, according to a person who was present for these interviews in Gurgaon in March and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Tata SIA Airlines is also conducting a so-called a product service positioning study of Air India, Jet Airways and also no-frills airline IndiGo to see how it can improve on them.
Tata SIA will also offer in-flight entertainment systems, a choice of meals, a loyalty programme and lounge services to passengers.
To be sure, full-service airlines have had it rough in the Indian market so far.
Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines Ltd won many awards internationally and locally for its five-star services, but was eventually grounded in October 2012 under the weight of heavy debt and accumulated losses.
Its first full fiscal year loss was Rs.577 crore in 2006-07. By 2012-13, its annual loss widened to Rs.4,301 crore. Its accumulated losses ballooned from Rs.1,200 crore to Rs.16,023 crore in the same period.
An analyst said the initial years will be a honeymoon period for Tata SIA, like for other airline start-ups.
“Tata SIA will see a honeymoon period for one to three years like Kingfisher Airlines did and then financials will start telling the real story of how the airline was executed,” said New York-based former Jet Airways CEO Steve Forte. “The more efficient the management, the longer the honeymoon.”

SIA set to be new sponsor of Singapore F1 race
By Kevin Lim
POSTED: 15 Apr 2014 09:05


Singapore Airlines (SIA) looks set to take over as the title sponsor of Singapore's Formula One night race.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) looks set to take over as the title sponsor of Singapore's Formula One night race.

SIA took two full-page advertisements in Tuesday's Straits Times -- the first stating that there will be a new name on the track this year, and the second announcing the 2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix.

SingTel has been the title sponsor since the inaugural race in 2008.

A SingTel spokeswoman referred queries to SIA, while SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides said the Singapore flag carrier will hold a briefing later on Tuesday morning.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) has sealed a deal with the Formula One Group to be the title sponsor of the Singapore Grand Prix. This year's marquee race will be named the "2014 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix".

SIA takes over as title sponsor from SingTel, which held the sponsorship since the inaugural race here in 2008.

In a statement, SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong said: "We are thrilled to be taking up the title sponsorship of one of the most exciting races on the F1 calendar, and we are especially pleased to be doing so in the lead-up to Singapore's 50th birthday next year.

"Singapore Airlines has always supported the development of both sports and tourism. Through our involvement with the world's first F1 night race, we will be able to enhance both for the benefit of Singaporeans and visitors alike," he added.

Formula One Group CEO, Bernie Ecclestone said: "We are very happy to have Singapore Airlines join the Formula One family by becoming the title sponsor of the extremely popular Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix, which was the first Formula 1 night race.

"It demonstrates Singapore's forward thinking, an attribute Singapore Airlines has always achieved."

SIA carried fewer passengers in March, but cargo improved
By Kevin Lim
POSTED: 15 Apr 2014 20:14


Singapore Airlines said on Tuesday it carried fewer passengers in March, but the cargo business showed some signs of improvement.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) said on Tuesday it carried fewer passengers in March and warned the operating environment remained challenging.

The Singapore flag carrier carried 1.51 million passengers last month -- a drop of 3.8 per cent from a year ago.

SIA's systemwide passenger carriage, which tracks revenues relative to distance travelled by passengers, decreased 5.4 per cent year-on-year, while passenger load factor -- a measure of the proportion of seats filled -- fell to 75 per cent from 79.3 per cent.

"The weaker passenger carriage was attributed to a combination of the Easter demand shift from March last year to April this year, and soft demand to Bangkok," SIA said in a statement.

SIA said its yields are expected to remain under pressure as efforts are made to boost loads in the current challenging operating environment.

The cargo business, however, showed some signs of improvement, with the overall cargo load factor rising by 0.8 percentage points to 68.0 per cent.

Singapore GP says deal with SIA is “win-win” solution
By Dylan Loh
POSTED: 15 Apr 2014 21:27


Singapore Grand Prix says the deal making Singapore Airlines title sponsor for the country's night race presents a "win-win" solution for both event and sponsor.

SINGAPORE: Previous partnerships between other carriers and Formula One were a catalyst for Singapore Grand Prix to initiate the deal making Singapore Airlines (SIA) title sponsor for the country's night race.

Singapore Grand Prix said it presents a “win-win” solution for both event and sponsor. Observers Channel NewsAsia spoke with agreed, saying the deal is mutually-reinforcing.

SIA’s title sponsorship of the country's Formula One night race potentially helps the carrier, event and host nation soar even faster to greater heights.

Michael Roche, executive director of Singapore FP, said: "Singapore Airlines speaks to all Singaporeans because so many Singaporeans use their services and you know, they're very proud about the Singapore Airlines brand and they travel on it. But equally, it gives us the ability now to really reach out in a more positive way to lots of their (SIA's) country offices."

Observers said leveraging the reach Singapore Airlines has as a global carrier to promote the night race should be a priority.

And it is what the airline intends on doing -- to plant the seeds of interest for the event where awareness may not be widespread.

Goh Choon Phong, chief executive officer of SIA, said: "Europe is a strong market; Australia is a strong market; China may not be as strong, for example. So there are always opportunities for us to see how we can actually attract even more people."

The carrier is looking at putting together travel promotions to bring more visitors to Singapore for the race.

Multitudes of people internationally watch the Singapore race every year. This sponsorship naturally means that Singapore Airlines, as a brand, has a ready platform to display itself to a global audience.

Mohit Gopaldas, managing director of Identity Counsel Brand Consultants, said: "It's about claiming a global stage. It's claiming your rightful place in the world as a leading airline and therefore you take a higher-order stance."

But with other carriers already on the Formula One sponsorship scene, observers noted that it is hard to say if Singapore Airlines' move will indeed translate to handsome returns for the carrier.
