Singapore Airlines Group Report 2017

The SIA Group consists of five wholly owned airline subsidiaries – SIA the parent airline, SilkAir, Scoot, Tigerair and SIA Cargo. In this comprehensive report, CAPA looks at the long term outlook and strategic position of all five airlines.

Singapore Airlines has evolved considerably over the past six years, embracing a multi brand model and investing in new airlines overseas. However, Southeast Asia’s largest and historically most pro table airline group is confronting an extremely challenging market place, making it near impossible to improve profitability – despite a raft of initiatives.

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group is at a critical juncture in its evolution. The group has evolved significantly since Goh Choon Phong took over as CEO at the beginning of 2011. While the final verdict is not yet clear, SIA would almost certainly be worse off today if it had not started to go down the path of change in 2011. However, the changes at SIA may not be deep enough, or may not have been implemented fast enough. However, in the past six years SIA has changed more than virtually any other airline group in Asia. Considering that it is a company known for its conservatism – the depth and pace of change have been relatively radical.

Aerotropolis Report: The world’s top 10 airport city projects and attendant aerotropolises

The concept of the airport city is now 25 years old and there are many examples of it around the world. It is one of a cluster of economic activity that is related to the need to travel by air, congregating around an airport (airport city) and subsequently expanding along nodes into surrounding areas (aerotropolis).

This report looks at what are considered to be the 10 leading examples of airport cities and aerotropolises and summarises the various factors and influences that apply to them.

It concludes by examining the commonalities where they can be found, asks why airport cities have not grown up in two cases where they rightly should have, questions the role of the private sector in their development and looks at the social and economic arguments against them.

AIRPORTS AND UBER: Transportation Network Companies now more welcome at airports

This unique CAPA reports presents information on Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), their modus operandi and how they are evolving globally – especially in their relations with the airport sector.

The results of a new CAPA survey into airport attitudes to TNCs are also communicated, along with a catalogue of recent news items collated by CAPA which gives insight into some of the issues that airports are dealing with in their relations with the TNCs.

The speed at which the TNC business is evolving and disrupting mirrors the changes in travel modes more widely, including independent direct airline reservations and self-connection through airports, and online home-space reservation for business and leisure rentals as characterised by airbnb.

These new players in the travel business know that what applies in the air transportation sector applies equally to them: there is a big reward for being the biggest in a market because the service with the most passengers and drivers tends to be more economically efficient. Therefore huge investments, multiple product variations, alliance-forming for cross border activities and M&A activity can all be expected to increase in intensity.

The report is complimentary for CAPA Members. Please contact your account manager to receive the relevant discount code.

Chinese Investment in Europe's Airports: 2016

China may be planning to invest USD130 billion in its airports over the next 10-15 years, but both public and private enterprises within the country seem to be doing their best to match that figure in foreign investments. While Chinese companies have targeted Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and other regions, Europe – actually one of the first continents to be homed in on by Chinese investors – is back in fashion again.

This report investigates who these investors are and where they are putting their money in Europe, with some examples from outside that continent. Not all of these investors have any sort of airport experience, by any means. The report coverage does not include any Chinese firm or entity investing or lending solely in China.

CAPA State of the Market 2016

We are constantly reminded of the fragility of aviation economics – from safety and security, right through to the vagaries of uncontrollable external costs. And, if that weren’t enough to deter the faint hearted, the industry is ringed by an unhelpful set of 70-year-old constraints on mergers and ownership, making rationalisation that extra bit harder.

Consequently, airlines struggle constantly to find ways to combat the barriers to industry rationalisation and extended market coverage – through global alliances, equity purchases, cross border joint ventures, obscure corporate structures and more. Yet the unnecessary obstacle race continues.

CAPA's State of the Market 2016 report evaluates the key issues influencing aviation development through 2016 - including our World Airline Profit Outlook - and key regional outlooks for Southeast Asia, South Asia, South Pacific, North Asia, Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, North America and Latin America to help guide decision-making and understanding in your business.
