SYDNEY, May 14 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines Ltd on Thursday reported its first-ever annual loss due to poor fuel hedging bets and a collapse in demand driven by the coronavirus pandemic.
The airline, a bellwether for premium travel in Asia, swung to a S$212 million ($149.14 million) net loss in the financial year ended March 31, down from a S$683 million profit a year earlier.
In the fourth quarter, it lost S$732 million, down from a S$203 million profit the prior year. It did not declare a dividend. ($1 = 1.4215 Singapore dollars) (Reporting by Jamie Freed; Editing by Alex Richardson)
