A Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-212ER passenger jet takes off from Changi Airport in Singapore February 2, 2010. Singapore Airlines, the world's No.2 airline by market value, posted a 19.7 percent rise in quarterly profit on a recovery in cargo volumes and improving passenger demand, but the number was short of expectations.
The company, 55 percent-owned by state investor Temasek Holdings, reported a net profit of S$403.7 million in its third quarter compared to a net profit of S$337.2 million a year ago, rebounding from two quarters of losses.
