Singapore Airlines: “Advance bookings indicate that the year-on-year recovery in passenger carriage and yields evident in the quarter to June will hold up for the rest of 2010. Similarly, leading indicators, as well as sentiment among shippers and forwarders, suggest that the recent resurgence in air freight may be sustained in the near term, although the rate of growth may abate. On the cost side, jet fuel prices have seen trading around the level of USD85 per barrel. Uncertainties about demand and supply are reflected in forward prices which are markedly higher than spot prices, and consequently affect the cost of hedging,” Company statement.
