Dear Members,
It’s my pleasure to connect and communicate with you through this Website about the various accomplishments and successes of SIASU over the last six months.

On the 30 May, SIA Chairman Mr. Stephen Lee held a dialogue session with the Principal Officials of SIASU. He started off by saying that he was glad to see staff morale had improved and he viewed SIASU as an important partner. During the two-hour session, Mr. Lee shared some strategies and challenges faced by the Company. The recent announcement of better performance had been due to lower fuel prices. This was prevalent in the industry as all other airlines had also enjoyed lower fuel prices. In time to come, the fuel price was expected to return to previous levels. He also spoke about reviewing strategies like the formation of multi-hubs and investing in IT to improve productivity in order to keep in line with others through working effectively. At the same time, the Union discussed issues on re-employment to age 67 and the reimbursement of medical fees (charged by our medical providers FHG) to our employees.
