Flag carrier of Singapore, Singapore Airlines Limited (SIA) has earned itself a strong presence in the Southeast Asia, East Asia, South Asia and ‘Kangaroo Route’; air routes flown by Qantas Airlines between Australia and the United Kingdom via the Eastern Hemisphere. Operating from a hub at Changi Airport, Singapore Airlines was the first airline to launch the Airbus A380, world’s largest passenger aircraft.
The airline’s wholly owned subsidiary, SilkAir, takes care of regional flights to secondary cities with smaller capacity requirements. Another subsidiary, Singapore Airlines Cargo, operates the airline’s freight fleet and manages the cargo-hold capacity in its aircrafts.
In 2012, SIA sold off their 49% shareholding in Virgin Atlantic to Delta Air Lines. Today, SIA have stakes in Tiger Airways and the wholly-owned Scoot subsidiary. Independently managed from Singapore Airlines, Scoot focuses on medium and long-haul routes operated with a fleet of four Boeing 777-200 wide body aircrafts.
Singapore Airlines also formed a joint venture with Tata Sons called TATA SIA. Based in New Delhi, India, the airline has ordered up to 20 Airbus A320s and will offer full service carriers like its competitors Air India and Jet Airways. Operations for this venture are set to start in the second half or 2014.
Known for renewing its fleet frequently, Singapore Airlines are currently operating an all wide-body aircraft fleet from three aircraft families, namely the Airbus A330, Airbus A380 and Boeing 777.
Offering four classes of service – suites, first class, business class and economy – the airline only flies to Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa.
Singapore Airlines also offer a wide variety of foods on each flight, including regional dishes such as such as the Kyo-Kaiseki, Shi Quan Shi Mei, and Shahi Thali being served on respective flights.
