Singapore Airlines announces voluntary no-pay leave policy

Singapore Airlines has announced a new voluntary no-pay leave policy eligible for crew in the ranks of chief steward/stewardess and flight steward/stewardess.

The national carrier puts the need for this new policy down to temporary surplus of crew during the September-November period.

In a statement to Human Resources, the company has said: "Having temporary surpluses or deficits of cabin crew is not unusual due to the nature of our business, and this voluntary scheme over a specific period of time is to ensure that we efficiently manage crew resources and operational requirements."

"It's a new approach to ensure the cabin crew division is more flexible and nimble in managing crew resources, and the intention is to offer it from time to time going forward."
