Singapore Airlines: “Passenger loadings in January and bookings in hand indicate that the recovery in the third quarter is likely to continue in the final quarter of the current financial year. The improvement in yields is also holding up. Although air cargo shows similar improvement, it is more tentative because of the excess of freighter capacity and the unidirectional nature of cargo flows. The business outlook for the Group in 2010 is encouraging but it must be acknowledged that uncertainties linger over the global economy,” Company statement. Source: Singapore Airlines, 02-Feb-2010.
