SIA Group Posts Record Full Year Net Profit of $2,675 Million

Issue 24 - 2024
SIA Group Posts Record Full Year Net Profit of  $2,675 Million

• Highest full year operating and net profits in the Group’s history as robust demand for air travel drives record passenger revenue and load factors 

• Geopolitical tensions, macroeconomic uncertainties, inflationary pressures, and supply chain constraints pose challenges for the aviation industry 

• The SIA Group’s robust foundations and long-term strategic initiatives position it strongly to capture future growth opportunities 

• Proposed final dividend of 38 cents per share results in a total payout of 48 cents per share for FY2023/24, or a dividend yield of 7.5%

The demand for air travel remained buoyant throughout FY2023/24, boosted by a rebound in North Asia as China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, and Taiwan fully reopened their borders. SIA and Scoot carried a combined 36.4 million passengers, up 37.6% year-on-year. Passenger traffic grew 26.6%, outpacing the capacity expansion of 22.9%. As a result, the Group passenger load factor (PLF) improved 2.6 percentage points to a record 88.0%. SIA and Scoot registered record PLFs of 87.1% and 91.2% respectively. 

Group revenue rose $1,238 million (+7.0% year-on-year) to a record $19,013 million. Passenger flown revenue rose by $2,319 million (+17.3%) to $15,685 million, despite a 7.6% decline in passenger yields. Cargo flown revenue fell $1,485 million (-41.2%) to $2,119 million. While cargo loads increased by 1.7% due to the strong demand from the e-commerce segment, yields were 42.2% lower year-on-year – albeit 29.8% above pre-pandemic levels. 

Group expenditure increased $1,202 million (+8.0%) to $16,285 million. Non-fuel expenditure rose by $1,336 million (+13.5%), and was partially offset by a $132 million decrease (-2.5%) in net fuel cost. The increase in non-fuel expenditure was lower than the 16.0% increase in overall passenger and cargo capacity. On the other hand, net fuel cost fell despite higher volumes uplifted (+$918 million) and a lower fuel hedging gain (+$358 million), mainly due to an 18.5% decrease in fuel prices (-$1,281 million). 

As a result, Group operating profit reached a record $2,728 million, up $36 million or 1.3% from a year before. 

The Group’s net profit improved by $518 million (+24.0%) to $2,675 million. This was mainly due to the better operating performance (+$36 million), a net interest income versus net finance charges a year before (+$215 million), lower tax expense (+$132 million), and a share of profits versus a share of losses of associated companies from the previous year (+$104 million).
