SIA, SAS sign code-share agreement
By Jonathan Peeris | Posted: 24 November 2010 2308 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines' (SIA) customers can now enjoy more options when travelling to Scandinavia.

Currently, SIA operates three flights per week between Singapore and the Danish capital, Copenhagen.

However, from December 1st, SIA customers will be able to travel beyond Copenhagen to Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm.

That is due to a code-share agreement signed between Singapore Airlines and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).

These flights will be operated by SAS but under SIA's SQ code.

In return, SAS will add its SK code to SIA's flights between Copenhagen and Singapore, as well as on selected flights between Singapore and Bangkok.

SIA said the tie-up will pave the way for more leisure and business travel by offering customers of both airlines more travel options via Copenhagen and Singapore.

Tiger ditches Avalon destinations
Danny Lannen | November 25th, 2010

TIGER Airways will axe flights to Alice Springs, Rockhampton and Mackay from Avalon Airport from February 7.

Airline chiefs said yesterday fuel costs for the long-haul routes were a factor in shifting them to Melbourne Airport amid several 2011 national schedule changes.

Confirmation comes three weeks after the budget carrier's Avalon launch and fractures Geelong Otway Tourism's ideal of linking Ayers Rock, the Great Barrier Reef and the Great Ocean Road.

Tiger chiefs said the loss of the flights would be offset by the introduction of new and more frequent Canberra and Brisbane flights on February 7, meaning the airline would maintain the same departure frequency from Avalon.

Communications chief Vanessa Regan said Tiger had focused on shorter-haul flights from Avalon and would continually review and adapt its scheduling.

"A major contributing factor for moving the services was that we were unable to achieve the low cost base we had hoped for due to the fuel transport issue," Ms Regan said.

"It's a commercial reality that we will continually review our network and periodically make changes in order to optimise the network to facilitate our growth plans."

Avalon Airport chief executive Justin Giddings said last night the destinations had been performing strongly and losing them was disappointing.

Reducing fuel supply costs was his top priority.

The airport buys its fuel from neighbouring Shell Geelong refinery but it travels via a pipeline running through the airport to Newport before being freighted back at cost loading of seven or more cents a litre.

The extra cost is passed on to airlines and airport owner Linfox is fighting for a new $12 million fuel line direct from the refinery to Avalon.

The State Coalition has pledged $3 million to help make it a reality if elected on Saturday and Mr Giddings is seeking bipartisan support.

"Definitely we want to be the leisure place, we really need to get to the Whitsundays and central Australia, we've lost them for now but hopefully we can resolve this issue and get them back," Mr Giddings said.

SILKAIR TO START SERVICES TO PEKANBARU

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will add the 34th destination to its route network with the launch of thrice-weekly flights between Singapore and the Indonesian city of Pekanbaru in February 2011.

Pekanbaru will be the airline’s eighth Indonesian destination after Balikpapan, Lombok, Manado, Medan, Palembang, Solo and Surabaya. The capital of Riau in Sumatra, Pekanbaru will be another major gateway into Indonesia from Singapore.

Subject to regulatory approvals, SilkAir will operate morning services between Singapore and Pekanbaru on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning 28 February 2011. (Details of the flight schedules are shown in the attachment)

"We are very excited to announce the addition of Pekanbaru to the SilkAir network. We see good prospects for continued growth in air traffic between Singapore and Indonesia and believe that the launch of our eighth Indonesian destination will further boost travel between the two countries,” said Mr Marvin Tan, SilkAir’s Chief Executive.

Pekanbaru’s established role as a base for international oil companies and the pulp and paper industry presents promising prospects for corporate travel and airfreight.

For customers from Pekanbaru, the new service will offer direct flights to Singapore and the convenience of onward connections to more than 90 international cities in the joint Singapore Airlines-SilkAir network.

Pekanbaru also offers a number of cultural and leisure attractions, such as the Great Mosque of An-Nur, Riau Cultural Park, the Sang Nila Utama Museum and numerous traditional markets including Pasar Bawah and Pasar Tengeh.

SILKAIR INCREASING FLIGHT FREQUENCY IN NORTHERN WINTER SCHEDULE

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will be increasing the frequency of its flights to a number of regional destinations to keep up with growing demand for air travel in Asia. The changes will be reflected in the airline’s Northern Winter schedule (31 October 2010 to 26 March 2011).

An additional daily service will be introduced on the Singapore-Penang route, providing customers with a choice of four daily flights.

SilkAir will also be increasing capacity on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route with the addition of five flights per week on weekdays, bringing the total flight frequency to 42 flights per week.

Additionally, there will be an increase in the frequency of flights on the Singapore-Medan (from 14 to 15 flights a week), Singapore-Kuching (from 3 to 4 flights a week), Singapore-Kunming (from 2 to 3 flights a week) and Singapore-Siem Reap (from 8 to 9 weekly flights) routes.

Supplementary services will also be operated to cater for higher travel demand during the year-end peak season. There will be an increase in the number of services to Cebu (up to 8 weekly flights), Thiruvananthapuram (up to 4 weekly flights) and Kathmandu (up to 6 weekly flights) in December and January.

The Singapore-Bangalore flights will be re-timed from the current night departure to a daytime departure. This change would provide customers travelling to and from Bangalore with more flight connection options through the combined network of Singapore Airlines and SilkAir. The frequency of flights on this route will, however, be reduced from seven to five flights per week taking into consideration the time needed to build up the loads in this new time window.

Singapore Airlines Cargo pleads guilty in price fixing probe, agrees to pay $48 million fine

WASHINGTON - Singapore Airlines Cargo is admitting that it conspired to fix prices for international shipments and agreed to pay a $48 million criminal fine.
The Justice Department announced Tuesday that the airline had agreed to plead guilty in a price fixing scheme from 2002 through 2006.

According to the charging document, the airline agreed with competitors to set rates on cargo shipments to and from the United States.

The airline, a subsidiary spun off of parent company Singapore Airlines in 2001, has agreed to co-operate with an antitrust investigation that is already under way.

So far, 20 airlines and 17 industry executives have been charged. The defendants have paid $1.7 billion in criminal fines. Four executives have been sentenced to prison, while charges are pending against the others.

Singapore Airlines Cargo: To Set Aside S$61.92 Million For US Antitrust Fine This Fiscal Year
By Gaurav Raghuvanshi; Dow Jones Newswires; +65 64154 154; [email protected]
Published November 30, 2010 | Dow Jones Newswires


SINGAPORE -(Dow Jones)- The cargo unit of Singapore Airlines Ltd. (C6L.SG) said Wednesday that it will set aside S$61.92 million in the current financial year as provision for an antitrust fine that it has agreed to pay the U.S. Department of Justice.

Singapore Airlines Cargo Pte. Ltd. had earlier agreed to settle the antitrust investigation started by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2006 and pleaded guilty to fixing prices on air-cargo shipments and will pay a $48 million criminal fine.

The agreement will bring the U.S. Department of Justice's air cargo investigations to a close for Singapore Airlines Cargo, the company said in a statement to Singapore Exchange.

The U.S. Justice Department said that Singapore Airlines Cargo engaged in a conspiracy to fix prices from 2002 until at least February 2006.

Prosecutors said the Singapore Airlines unit and other air cargo shippers held meetings and conversations in which they agreed on shipping rates, in violation of federal antitrust law. The shippers also monitored and enforced each other's adherence to the price-fixing agreements, prosecutors said.

Singapore Airlines Cargo is the 20th airline to plead guilty or agree to plead guilty to fixing prices on air cargo. The Justice Department said it has collected more than $1.7 billion in fines in the long-running investigation.

SIA, SilkAir to increase fuel surcharge
Posted: 01 December 2010 1832 hrs

SINGAPORE: Flying on Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SilkAir will get more expensive.

The carriers are increasing their fuel surcharge for tickets issued from December 2.

The surcharge will represent an increase in price of between US$3 and US$25 per sector, depending on the distance and class of travel.

SIA said this was a result of a sustained escalation in the price of jet fuel in recent months.

The price of jet fuel is now above US$95 per barrel.

The increase in the fuel surcharge is the first since June 2008.

The last three revisions were to reduce fuel surcharges in September 2008, November 2008 and February 2009.

SIA said the adjustments will offer only partial relief from the higher operating costs arising from increases in the price of jet fuel.

It said it will continue to closely monitor the price of fuel and keep surcharges under constant review.

SIA complying with A380 inspection directives
By Wayne Chan | Posted: 02 December 2010 1608 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines said it has been complying with recommendations for inspections to ensure the continued safe operation of its Airbus A380 fleet.

The airline was responding to reports that the Australian Transport Safety Bureau had ordered Qantas to conduct detailed checks on its Rolls-Royce-made Airbus A380 engines.

ATSB had identified a potential manufacturing defect which it said could lead to an oil fire and engine failure.

SIA said the checks are in full compliance with directives issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency and guidance from engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce.

SIA added that these inspections are not expected to affect flight timings.

It explained that alternate aircraft will be deployed in place of A380s, on flights to and from Sydney and Melbourne until December 16 and supplementary flights will also be operated.

Asked whether it would follow Qantas in taking steps to sue Rolls-Royce, SIA said its first priority was to ensure the continued safe operation of its fleet.

Qantas said it had taken measures to ensure it can litigate against Rolls-Royce if discussions surrounding the recent failure of a Trent 900 engine powering one of its A380s do not produce a commercial settlement.

SIA temporarily stops flights from Milan to Barcelona
By Satish Cheney | Posted: 04 December 2010 2103 hrs

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines (SIA) said its daily service from Milan to Barcelona and from Barcelona to Milan has been temporarily stopped.

This is because of a state of emergency in Spain following a strike by air traffic controllers there which has paralysed Spanish airports for the second day.

Barcelona is the only Spanish city SIA flies to on its Singapore-Milan-Barcelona route.

A spokesman said flights on the Singapore-Milan and Milan-Singapore sector are still operational.

The state of emergency has forced several other airlines to also stop flights to Spain.

Air France and KLM are among affected airlines.

SIA resumes daily service between Milan and Barcelona
By Sharon See | Posted: 05 December 2010 2024 hrs

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airlines (SIA) has resumed daily service between Milan and the Spanish city of Barcelona after a one-day temporary stoppage.

The airline only operates one flight daily on that route.

The service was suspended on Saturday after Spain declared a state of emergency because of a strike by air traffic controllers.

The Spanish military has since forced the air traffic controllers to end their strike.

The strike hit an estimated 300,000 passengers on a long holiday weekend, whipping up the most chaotic scenes since an Icelandic volcano erupted in April and halted 100,000 flights worldwide, said wire reports.

Singapore Airlines to deploy A380 on Singapore-LA route

– 1 hr 12 mins ago

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore Airlines, the world's second-largest carrier by market value, said on Monday it will deploy the Airbus A380 superjumbo on the Singapore-Los Angeles route beginning next year despite a controversy over the plane's engines.

Recent problems involving the Rolls-Royce engines on the biggest passenger carrier in the world have forced Australian carrier Qantas to ground some of its A380 aircraft, preventing it serving the Sydney-Los Angeles route for the time being.

Both SIA, which currently operates 11 A380s and has another 9 on order, and Qantas are using Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines on their A380 aircraft. SIA currently does not use the A380 on the Singapore-Los Angeles route.

"This is a significant and smart move by the carrier (SIA), which will likely capitalize on the busy transpacific route with its 471-seater A380," said Shukor Yusof, analyst at Standard & Poor's.

SIA said its A380 has been designed to seat 471 passengers in a three-class configuration, compared to 375 on its Boeing 747-400.

"This means that while there will be capacity growth, it will be incremental and sustainable for the airline," SIA said in a statement, adding that the route would start after the carrier receives its 12th A380 next year.

Last month, a Qantas A380 flight between Singapore and Sydney suffered a mid-air engine failure, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing in the city-state.

The Australian carrier is claiming damages from Rolls-Royce over the engines on its A380s and loss of business as investigators concluded a design fault was the likely cause of the November 4 incident.
