Singapore Airlines puts staff hours back to close to full time

Singapore Airlines moved its staff back to working close to full time hours, after staff last year agreed to an unpaid day off each fortnight amid the global financial downturn (NZ Herald, 08-Mar-2010). Staff are now taking one unpaid day off per month. The carrier is also considering resuming some Singapore-Auckland flights, if demand is sufficient.

Singapore Airlines: “It was the toughest year that I've seen…The forecasts were quite bad, but now the worst is behind us we're working towards recovery…We would like to improve the yield because in the past year we have been trying to keep up demand by offering very attractive fares into the market,” Looi Tein-Po, New Zealand Manager.
