SIA supports Australia’s bushfire appeal

Singapore Airlines will donate AUD$100,000 to the Red Cross’ Disaster Relief and Recovery appeal, to support communities across Australia devastated by the recent bushfires.

Philip Goh, Regional Vice President, Singapore Airlines said that the scale of the devastation was hard to comprehend and hoped the donation would go some way to supporting communities across the country.

Goh added, “Australians have supported us for the past 53 years and we hope that this donation will go some way to supporting the people and communities affected by these bushfires. It is difficult to fathom the scale of the fires across Australia as it has now affected an area more than 140 times the size of Singapore. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected and, like many, we convey our sincere thanks and gratitude to fire-fighters across the country who continue to battle the blazes.”

For customers affected by the bushfires and scheduled to travel with Singapore Airlines, requests for assistance will be assessed on a case by case basis and, where appropriate, Singapore Airlines will provide support to those who require changes to their bookings.

Goh said the airline would continue to work with its alliance partner Virgin Australia, as well as key stakeholders across the country to lend further support to bushfire appeals where possible.

“These fires have impacted all of us in some way, whether directly through friends and families who have lost property or been displaced as a result of evacuations, or indirectly through the sheer enormity of the crisis,” Goh said.

“We remain steadfastly behind the people of Australia and will continue to seek out opportunities to support causes at a local and national level, whether that be through the donation of goods, or the provision of tickets to assist with fundraising efforts.”
