"No matter what, SIA will survive"
Singapore Airlines is owned by the Singapore government in the form of majority shares and is a vital link to the Asian business hub. Without a national airline to provide travel links to the country, the economy will collapse, which makes the Singapore government take a ‘whatever it takes’ approach to support the airline. The government poured in over $8 billion in June 2020 to improve the liquidity of the airline.
The absolute necessity of the airline’s survival to its owners makes it an airline capable of suffering losses for decades but still have access to any amount of capital to continue operations.
