SIA Establishes Holding Company for Scoot and Tiger Airways
Posted: 2016 May 21
 
Singapore Airlines (SIA) has announced the creation of a holding company that will own and manage its budget airlines Scoot and Tiger Airways, following the delisting of Tiger Airways (which operates as Tigerair) from SGX-ST.
 
Scoot and Tiger Airways, will now be led by Lee Lik Hsin, as CEO of the holding company. Said Mr Lee of his new position as CEO of Budget Aviation Holdings: “I am excited to be appointed to this new role. There are many opportunities ahead for Scoot and Tigerair to work more closely together, which will provide new opportunities for the growth of both airlines for the benefit of our customers.”
 
He has led Tigerair since May 2014. SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong will be Chairman of Budget Aviation Holdings and its management will include senior staff from Scoot, Tigerair and SIA.
 
“We launched our general offer so that we could fully realise commercial and operational synergies between Scoot and Tigerair. We are confident that Lik Hsin and his team are up to the task,” said Mr Goh.
 
“The holding company structure will drive a deep integration of our low-cost subsidiaries, which are important parts of our portfolio strategy in which we have investments in both the full-service and budget aspects of the airline business.”
 
Mr Goh added: “We also recognise the contribution Campbell has made through his leadership of Scoot since its establishment, successfully developing its corporate culture, brand, route network and fleet, and bringing it to profitability in a short time. We look forward to his return to SIA.”
 
The holding company structure will allow for the integration and sharing of key functions, such as in sales and marketing, IT, planning and operations.
