Revenues meanwhile fell to SGD276m ($208.3m), a reduction of 11.3 per cent compared with the previous year.

In a statement, SIAEC said newer engines with improved reliability coupled with the phasing out of older engines will result in fewer engine shop visits in the next few years.

Despite this, it said it was confident that demand would pick up in future due to the influx of new aircraft into the region.
