India's Jet Airways to fly here daily

29 Oct 04

By Ravi Velloor
India Bureau Chief
In New Delhi

SINGAPORE travellers to India will have a wider choice of airlines from April when Mumbai-based Jet Airways, India's No. 1 domestic carrier, begins three daily flights to the island.

Jet, which has a 46 per cent market share that puts it ahead of Indian Airlines, will fly to Singapore daily from New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai, said airline vice-president Nandini Verma.

While the Singapore-Mumbai flight will be an early day operation, the New Delhi and Chennai services will be afternoon or evening flights, she said.

'Our prices will be competitive with Singapore Airlines and more expensive than Air-India's,' Ms Verma told The Straits Times.

India's private airlines are being gradually allowed to expand into overseas routes, the turf traditionally reserved for state-run carriers Indian Airlines and Air-India. Jet and rival Sahara Airlines now have permission to fly to South Asian capitals such as Kathmandu and Colombo.

The Indian government is poised to permit the private carriers to fly to South-east Asian capitals as part of a commitment made last year by then-prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee to open up India's skies to airlines from South-east Asia.

Jet, which operates 260 flights to 44 destinations, plans to start flying to Singapore with 737-800 type aircraft. By the end of next year, it expects to take delivery of wide-bodied aircraft, probably the Boeing 777 Extended Range.

The airline will have 16 business class and 124 economy class seats on its initial flights. Business class seats will have a pitch of 147cm, making it among the best in its class, Ms Verma said.

SCAE to sell stake in London Luton Airport Group

SINGAPORE - Singapore Changi Airport Enterprise Pte Ltd (SCAE) through Alterra Partners, its 50-50 joint venture with Bechtel Enterprise, will jointly sell its stake in London Luton Airport Group Limited to TBI plc.

The price tag?

$213.27 million cash and 14.9 million TBI plc shares valued at $32.6 million based on the mid-market price of TBI plc shares traded on the London Stock Exchange on Wednesday. SCAE and Bechtel Enterprise collectively owns 28.6 per cent of London Luton Airport Group Limited, which has a 30-year concession to operate London Luton Airport.

TBI owns the remaining shares of London Luton Airport Group Limited.

Mr Boon Swan Foo, Chairman of SCAE and Changi Airport Managers and Partners (CHAMPS) said Luton has seen tremendous growth and we have now reached a stage where we believe greater value can be unlocked through the injection of our stake in Luton into TBI.

He said this arrangement will benefit TBI in allowing them greater financial flexibility and SCAE will continue to benefit in any upside from our equity stake in TBI.

Mr Boon added that the proceeds from the deal would be deployed by Singapore Changi to pursue new investment opportunities in Asia, particularly in China and India.

Qantas increases flights to Britain via Singapore and Hong Kong

SYDNEY: Qantas Airways said it will increase the number of flights from Australia to Britain with stopovers in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Qantas general manager John Borghetti said that from Sunday the airline would add an extra three flights a week on both the Perth-Singapore-London and Sydney-Hong Kong-London routes.

"These six new flights will increase the number of UK services offered by Qantas from 21 a week to 27 a week," Borghetti said. "This will mean nearly 2,300 more seats to London."

He said Qantas would add a fourth extra flight on the Sydney-Hong Kong-London route in 2005 and it had approval to operate a further three flights from April 2006.

"Hong Kong has been a popular Qantas destination in its own right for a long time and now it will also be available as a stopover destination to Europe," he said.

Qantas also announced a codeshare agreement with Air Frace which will see the Australian airline's customers connect with daily Air France flights in Singapore to reach Paris. - AFP

Increasing the Perth-singapore-London flights just when Valueair is moving in? Interesting timing.

2004 Releases

31 Oct 2004
From Russia, With Love
Seventh Airline To Operate To Changi Airport This Year Offers Direct Link To Moscow

Changi Airport is welcoming its seventh new airline for the year - Transaero Airlines from Russia. Transaero Airlines will fly once a week between Moscow and Singapore. The non-stop service also re-establishes a link between Changi Airport and the capital of Russia. With the arrival of Transaero Airlines, Changi Airport is now served by 73 airlines operating more than 3,600 flights to 172 cities in 54 countries.

Transaero's maiden flight to Singapore today was marked by a ceremony at Changi Airport attended by Mr Alexander Pleshakov, Chairman of Transaero Airlines; Mr Sergey B. Kiselev, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Singapore; Mr Michael Tay, Ambassador of Singapore to the Russian Federation; and Mr Ho Beng Huat, Acting Director-General, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

"CAAS believes in working closely with its airline partners to create a conducive environment for them to grow and develop their business. With today's inaugural, I am confident that CAAS and Transaero will build a close working relationship, which will grow stronger in the years ahead", said Mr Ho.

The Transaero Airlines flight departs Moscow on Saturday and arrives in Singapore on Sunday at 1400 hours. It will depart Singapore on Sunday at 1540 hours and arrive in Moscow the same day.

The new service between Moscow and Changi Airport comes as businessmen on both sides signaled a readiness to step up bilateral business links. On 15 October 2004, Russia's biggest association of small and medium-sized enterprises (representing 25,000 business-owners) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Singapore Business Federation to pave the way for greater co-operation between the business communities in both countries.

Moscow is the capital of Russia and has been described as the most important business and political centre in Russia. Moscow is home to some 11 million people and is a city of famous historical landmarks, including the Kremlin, Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral.

Aside from Transaero Airlines, the airlines that started operations at Changi Airport this year are First Cambodia Airlines, Shandong Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Thai AirAsia, ValuAir and Tiger Airways.

Flights to Russia resumed

SINGAPORE'S air links to Russia were restored on Sunday, when a flight from Transaero Airlines touched down at Changi Airport.

The airline is the seventh new one to fly here this year.

Direct flights between the Republic and Moscow were suspended in March last year when Russian carrier Aeroflot withdrew its operations from Changi.

Transaero, one of Russia's largest airlines, also flies to Hong Kong and Taipei.

Its chairman, Mr Alexander Pleshakov, told reporters on Sunday that the carrier will introduce a flight between Singapore and St Petersburg, Russia's second largest city, some time next year.

It is also looking to increase the frequency of its Singapore-Moscow flights.

With the latest addition, Changi Airport is now served by 73 airlines operating more than 3,600 flights to 172 cities.

It recently retained its ranking as the second cheapest among the 11 airports in Asia, after Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

This was based on figures compiled by the International Air Transport Association, which compared the charges payable for a Boeing 747-400 with a three-hour turnaround.

It costs $3,726 in Changi, but $1,006 in Kuala Lumpur.

Third-ranked Bangkok charges $4,330.

Changi managed to attract 10 new airlines last year, and three the year before.

The new carriers this year include First Cambodia Airlines, Shandong Airlines and Austrian Airlines.
