Profits at Singapore Airlines in the three months to the end of December fell by 65 per cent to $50 million, compared with the same three months the year before that.

This was mainly due to non-operating expenses, for example fines paid by SIA Cargo to foreign authorities for its alleged involvement in global price-fixing.

During the quarter, SIA also increased its stake in budget airline Tigerair.

Overall, the group recorded an operating profit of $151 million, or $20 million more than a year ago.
