AUSTRALIA will not allow Singapore Airlines (SIA) to operate any trans-Pacific routes from its major east coast cities according to reports emulating from Sydney. Discussions had been under way between the two countries on routes that are highly profitable and would fit in neatly with the SIA operation. However any lifting of restrictions would also open up bids from other States through which Qantas operate and whose airlines might seek equality. SIA access to the lucrative Australia - US route has been indefinitely postponed as the Government prepares for a review of the aviation industry that could remove foreign ownership restrictions on Qantas. However Canberra says it is going to review the whole of its international aviation policy which will include the foreign ownership of Qantas.
