Finnair begins direct flights to Singapore
By Indo Asian News Service | IANS – Tue, May 31, 2011

Helsinki, May 31 (IANS) Finland's largest airline Finnair Tuesday said that it has started direct flights to Singapore with a timetable devised especially for the needs of business travellers.

'Finnair's Asian strategy has worked extremely well. The Singapore route will strongly support our core strategy as well as serving our main target group of customers travelling between Asia and Europe on business,' Finnair's chief executive officer Mika Vehvilainen said, according to a company statement.

Singapore is the airline's tenth scheduled destination in Asia.

The company said it was the only airline which offered daily connections between Singapore and northern Europe.

The new route opens up connections to its 50 strong European destination network specially for Asian customers.

'The new route to Singapore gives splendid support to Helsinki Airport's position as the leading long haul hub in northern Europe,' the airport's director Juha-Pekka Pystynen said.

Customers travelling onwards through Singapore can connect with flights offered as part of Finnair's partner network to Australia and Singapore's neighbours, Malaysia and Indonesia.

The flights are being operated using A340 aircraft.

Changi set to see 50m passengers by 2014

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport Group said passenger traffic at Changi Airport is expected to exceed 50 million by 2014.

Current passenger traffic stands at 42 million.

Passenger movements grew from 30 million to 40 million in six years, from 2004 to 2010.

Changi Airport is ranked the seventh busiest airport for international traffic.

The others are London Heathrow Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Hong Kong International Airport, Dubai International Airport, Frankfurt Airport and Amsterdam Schipol.

The group said it is looking at four main thrusts to achieve this target.

One of it is to continue to enhance the Changi experience for passengers.

For example, the iChangi application was launched last year to allow users to obtain the latest flight updates on the go.

It also aimed to leverage on new tourism products such as the Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore International Cruise Terminal.

Discussions with various airline partners, both foreign and Singapore based carriers, are also underway.

For example, after trade shows were carried out to promote traffic flow between Singapore and Turkey in both directions, Turkish Airlines has upped their services from five to seven weekly.

With the significant growth of low—cost carriers (LCC), the group said "it won’t come as a surprise" if it would make up about 30—35 per cent of the total market share in the next five years.

Currently, LCCs account for about 22 per cent of passenger traffic at Changi Airport.

Changi Airport Group air hub development executive vice—president Yam Kum Weng said: "If you look at the experience in Europe, the LCC growth can be as much as 30 per cent of market share.

"So we do see the LCCs playing an important part in achieving our target".

But the group said the target will be re—looked if faced with various challenges such as increasing fuel prices and natural disasters.

Other challenges include geopolitical shocks and the weak global economic environment.

The group also said it hopes to strengthen its global network by collaborating with key partners.

"The pace that we’re looking at for growth is stronger than our historical average," Mr Yam said.

"We will strengthen our connectivity to points in China and India, in particular the secondary cities where there’s a lot of potential for growth, and also to long—haul markets like Europe, US and Russia".
