SINGAPORE AIRLINES TAKES ON THE USA

The U.S. airline industry is about to experience competition from Singapore Airlines (SIA) which will have 15 long-range wide-body aircraft in service by the end of 1980. The airline is replacing the entire 747 fleet with newer models and is embarking on the construction of one of the biggest engineering bases in the world. SIA is competing indirectly with Pan Am, offering a type of service similar to its Australia-Europe operation. SIA will appeal to the tourist/VFR (visiting friends and relations) market. Operational and personnel aspects of SIA are discussed.
