SATS: “Recent industry statistics indicate the bottoming out of the aviation downturn. Activity levels have improved quarter-on-quarter, albeit still below pre-crisis levels. Coming off the peak October-December quarter, the fourth quarter of the financial year is traditionally the weakest quarter for Singapore’s aviation sector. However, with the continual recovery in this sector, the Group expects to see year-on-year improvements in passenger and cargo loads. SFI consolidation also adds balance to the Group's performance as the seasonal strength of the UK food business and SFI’s Singapore business help to even out the seasonal impact on the regional aviation activities,” Company statement.
