The Article by AFP can be read below: Singapore Airlines (SIA) said Thursday it will reinstate daily all-business-class flights to New York on January 18 as demand for the service begins to pick up. SIA in February cut the frequency of the 100-seat Airbus A345 trips to five times a week, saying fewer people wanted premium travel as a result of the global economic slowdown. “There’s increased demand, that’s why we are increasing the flights,” said a spokeswoman for the airline, which is reputed in the industry for its business and first class services to North America and Europe. Regional aviation analyst Jim Wong of Nomura Securities in Hong Kong said SIA’s latest move reflected a larger trend as Asian economies lead the rest of the world in recovering from the crisis. “The clienteles of a lot of Asian airlines are home-based,” he told AFP by telephone. “So if the Asian economies are recovering, the Asian airlines will recover that much faster.” A sharp recession in Singapore ended in the third quarter and other economies in the region, notably powerhouses China and India, are posting robust growth. Asia-Pacific economies are expected to grow 6.3 per cent in 2010, according to a recent UN survey.
