Singapore Airlines unveils "future proof 2010 fares"

Singapore Airlines announced (26-Oct-2009) it has "future proofed" its 2010 Early Bird Europe fares for Australian passengers, meaning any passenger who books the fares between 26-Oct-2009 to 05-Jan-2010 are guaranteed against any future reduction in prices in 2010. The sale is valid for departure between 01-Apr-2010 and 30-Nov-2010. The carrier stated the move is designed to inject greater consumer confidence in pricing for next year and to fast-track market stability in the sector. As part of the move, Singapore Airlines will also adjust its booking seasonality structure, replacing the three-season model with a two-season approach that is designed to "provide greater consistency in fare pricing".
