Singapore Airlines Limited is investing £12.25 million in Virgin Atlantic holdings. Virgin Atlantic Holdings.

SIA said that the investment would increase working cpaital and funding for the airline and expenditure requirements.

Analysts say that the move was to protect SIA's £600+ million investment in Virgin in 1999. "What it means is that Virgin Atlantic will live to fight another day, there were some concerns about that earlier," said John Casey, analyst at DBS Vickers.

AM I GLAD not to see (NOT AN ARTICLE)

I doubt this means their stake will go beyond 50% though. If not it ceases to be a European airline and there're heaps of implications there.

Yes, Docpepz,
Refering to the Reuters article it points out that Singapore Airlines is investing £12.5M, and Virgin Investments is putting in the same amount of money, £12.5M to maintain Virgin Atlantic as over 50% UK (EU) owned.

Unfortunately, Singapore_Air is so blinkered and biased he only posted the information relating to Singapore Airlines in his post meaning the whole story didn't make sense, because the fact that Virgin Investments put in the same amount of cash is the most important part of the story.
