Right now I think they won't do it cos they are still in the midst of developing emirates........i dun think they will put such a strong competitor in their own hub......

But i think in the long run might as well spend more time on developing changi instead.....

Well, SIA might actually loose out if it is flying from the gulf, if you think about it. Emirates scored for offering top-notch service with competitive pricing. SIA will loose out in terms of pricing, unless they can out pace the service offered by Emirates by a significant degree.

But I do want to see how Emirates reacts should SIA goes right ahead!

Dnata may use CIAS as platform to expand into China and region
By Mazlena Mazlan, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : Emirates Group unit Dnata is considering Changi International Airport Services as a platform for expanding into China and the rest of the region.

Dnata president Gary Chapman told Channel NewsAsia this in an exclusive interview in Dubai.

Dnata is buying Temasek Holdings' 78.4 percent stake in CIAS.

CIAS already has interest in ground handling operations in Guangzhou, China.

Dnata already has operations in the Pakistani cities of Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar.

It also operates in Manila, Tehran and Doha.

But it views its CIAS acquisition as without question its most important expansion.

Gary Chapman, Chairman, Dnata, said: "We will be very keen to play a part to see Changi grow and prosper. It'll be in our interest to see that happen as a business."

Dnata says that hopefully it can wrap up the CIAS acquisition in the next month to 6 weeks.

It disclosed that the whole deal had gone through in double quick time.

It was first approached about buying over Temasek's stake only in May or June this year.

By last Friday, the deal was sealed.

On a third ground handler, Swissport International, starting operations at Changi Airport next year, Dnata says it is very difficult for it to predict exactly what are the implications of that. - CNA

In terms of First Class, I would say both airlines are comparable although Emirates may be winning only in its new A340 First Class suites. Inconsistency is still found flying Emirates. I have flown on both airlines before and I will still be very loyal to SIA for its services and its business class.

Trust those who fly much more often then I do!

Medan, dont you think the price you are paying for SIA somehow dampens the joy of enjoying the level of service they provide?

Changi Airport's passenger volume close to new record level

SINGAPORE - Passenger traffic at Changi Airport continued to surpass pre-SARS levels in the month of August.

The airport handled some 2.6 million travellers in August 2004, marking an increase of 15 per cent as compared with the 2.26 million travellers in August 2003.

Compared to August 2002, the latest passenger traffic number was 4 per cent higher.

In August 2002, 2.5 million passengers came through Changi Airport. The latest August figure offers optimism that passenger traffic at Changi Airport will reach new heights this year, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Between January and August 2004, a total of 19.68 million passengers visited Changi Airport.

This is 31.1 per cent more than the same period a year ago, and a 2.9 per cent increase from the corresponding January to August period in 2002.

Passenger volume at Changi Airport reached a record high in 2002, hitting 29 million passengers for the full year.

Meanwhile, Changi Airport processed 147,398 tonnes of cargo in August 2004, which is a jump of 11 per cent from 132,846 tonnes in August 2003, and an increase of 6.3 per cent over August 2002, when 138,618 tonnes of air freight was moved at Changi Airport.

Between January and August 2004, Changi Airport handled slightly over a million tonnes of air freight.

This is an 11.7 per cent hike over the same period last year, and an 8 per cent increase over 2002.

Manpower Minister urges SATS to restructure wages to stay competitive

SINGAPORE : The management and union of Singapore Air Terminal Services (SATS) have been told to conclude their collective agreement quickly.

Manpower Minister Ng Eng Hen said it was crucial for SATS to restructure its wages to stay competitive.

Dr Ng was speaking at the SATS Workers' Union on Thursday.

Citing the example of PSA which also underwent wage restructuring, Dr Ng says the port operator is now seeing the benefits.

Last year, PSA staff accepted wage cuts to keep costs down.

When things turned around, staff were given a goodwill bonus in August, and will be eligible for another bonus next month if the company achieves its cost reduction targets.

Dr Ng said similarly SATS, which is the dominant player in airport services, needs to be just as nimble, especially with price-sensitive low-cost carriers entering the market.

He said Changi Airport must lower fixed costs, otherwise airlines and passengers may bypass Changi. - CNA

Haha......I'm not surprised.........

Anyway they have a 80% market share in the ground service in changi airport so how much they charge is really quite crucial for changi........

That is true. I would think it is highly in Changi's interest that SATS's near monopoly is diminished to a more palatable share of the market.

But then again, cant help that SIA is certainly huge in Changi already!
