Singapore's national carrier, Singapore Airlines (SIA) said today that they saw a 71% drop in net profit in the fiscal first quarter of this year. They explained that conditions in the air transport industry are "challenging". SIA, which also operates SilkAir and Scoot, made only $34.8 million in the last three months compared to the $121.8 million profits that they made in the same time last year.
SMRT Corp explained today that it saw a fiscal first quarter net profit increase of 36.8% compared to the same time last year. Its total profits for the three months ended June were $22.4 million. The total revenue for the three months from April to June rose 4.3% to $297.1 million. This increase in SMRT profits co-insides with the public transport Fare Hikes which occurred at the start of April.

I hope the hard-earned victories of our national shuttlers and paddlers have vindicated the decision of our national sports associations to bring foreign-born sports talent into our national teams (“Shuttlers pick themselves up to land unexpected bronze” and “S’pore glue on crown holds”; yesterday). Of course, we would love to have local-born athletes mount the victory podium.
Robbers attempting to blast open an ATM at a bank in the quiet town of Bukit Beruntung brought down the ceiling at its service area and damaged several other machines. And, they got nothing.
