SATS: “Uncertainty in global air travel demand persists amid the trying global economic environment and the slowdown in Europe. Airfreight demand remains weak on the back of lower consumption in advanced economies. Changi Airport’s fundamentals continue to be supported by regional traffic growth and network enhancement by some airlines. However, decline in air cargo throughput is likely to continue in the coming months. We expect the growth momentum in our food business to continue, underpinned by the seasonal uplift in the third quarter, and continued management of raw material costs.” Source: Company statement, 06-Nov-2012.
