Goh Choon Phong, CEO, SIA said, “We are very excited about what our new low-fare subsidiary will offer to consumers. We are seeing a new market segment being created and this will provide another growth opportunity for the SIA Group. As we have observed on short-haul routes within Asia, low-fare airlines help stimulate demand for travel, and we expect this will also prove true for longer flights.”
More details will be announced later by the new airline’s management team in due course, including its branding, products and services, and route network.
