Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Thursday, 31 January 2013

Singapore Airlines has taken the decision to advance the planned release of 76 pilots who are employed on fixed-term contracts.

  The pilots are expected to be released by 30 June 2013.

The airline had previously been releasing pilots only upon expiry of their contracts.

The airline said it would assist the pilots to pursue employment opportunities within the SIA Group and with other airlines.

Singapore Airlines currently has a surplus of pilots to its operational requirements, as the global financial crisis of 2009-10 had resulted in excess capacity and slower than expected growth.

The airline had earlier implemented other measures to address the surplus, such as voluntary no pay leave and the suspension of cadet pilot recruitment.

Pilots employed on fixed-term contracts make up about 4% of Singapore Airlinesí total pilotsí workforce.
