31 January 2013, Singapore – Singapore’s flag carrier Singapore Airlines will release 76 pilots who are employed on fixed term contracts before their contracts expire by 30 June 2013.

Singapore Airlines has a surplus of pilots as the global financial crisis of 2009 – 2010 resulted in excess capacity and slower than expected growth.  Pilots employed on fixed-term contracts make up about 4% of the airline’s total pilots’ workforce.
