SIA Group: “The continuing European economic crisis is dampening global business confidence, exerting downward pressure on loads and yields of both passenger and cargo businesses. These challenging market conditions are exacerbated by high and volatile jet fuel prices. Despite the challenging environment, the Group’s strong balance sheet has enabled continued investment in new aircraft and in the upgrading of products and services. The Group remains vigilant in ensuring efficient deployment of its fleet in response to changes in demand patterns. A strict cost management regime is also in place to mitigate cost pressures.” Source: Company statement, 02-Nov-2012.
