2 new airlines join Changi
By Lai Han-Wei

TWO regional airlines, the Philippines' Airphil Express and Malaysia's Berjaya Air, will start operations at Changi Airport in the next two weeks.

Airphil will operate 14 weekly flights between Singapore and Manila from Changi's Terminal 2 from Oct 27, and 14 weekly flights between Singapore and Cebu from Dec 1.

Singapore will be Airphil's first international destination, and it will join five other carriers currently flying to the Philippines.

Berjaya Air will begin operations at Changi's Budget Terminal on Nov 1 with 10 flights a week to Tioman, operating daily except Tuesdays and Thursdays. From next March, it will increase the flight frequency to 28 weekly flights, 14 each to the resort islands of Tioman and Redang. Both islands are new links to Changi.

Changi Airport Group's Director, Market Development, Mr Lim Ching Kiat, said: 'We are delighted to welcome these two new carriers to Changi's network. Their services will improve Changi's connectivity and accessibility to their destinations.'

The two new airlines will be the sixth and seventh new airline to begin operations to Changi this year. Together, Changi will serve 98 airlines operating more than 5,000 weekly scheduled flights connecting Singapore to over 200 cities in 60 countries and territories.

Berjaya Air to operate Changi-Tioman flights

Malaysia's Berjaya Air will operate scheduled flights out of Changi Airport to Tioman Island from Nov 1, 2010.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) said today the airline will start with 10 flights a week to Tioman Island, off Pahang coast, operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from the Budget Terminal 1.

From March next year, after the monsoon season, the Malaysian carrier would increase frequencies to 14 weekly flights, CAG said in a statement today.

It will also operate into Redang Island, off Terengganu coast, in the same month, also operating 14 weekly flights. Both islands are new links for Changi.

Currently, Berjaya Air operates several scheduled flights out of Singapore to the two islands via the old Seletar Airport.
Berjaya Air will be the seventh new airline to start operations to Changi this year.

With Berjaya Air's operations, Changi will serve 98 airlines operating more than 5,000 weekly scheduled flights connecting Singapore to over 200 cities in 60 countries and territories. -- Bernama

Changi Airport flights unaffected by haze
Posted: 21 October 2010 2053 hrs

SINGAPORE: The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has said flights at Changi Airport are not affected by the haze which reached unhealthy levels on Thursday.

The three-hour Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) reading rose to 108 at 6pm. A PSI reading between 101-200 is considered unhealthy.

Responding to media queries, CAAS pointed out that Changi Airport is equipped with facilities and procedures to allow safe landing of aircraft in low visibility conditions.

This is in accordance with international standards.

The airport is equipped with an Instrument Landing System (ILS) which provides guidance to pilots for their landing on the runway.

CAAS said the pilot's decision to land is based on the Runway Visual Range, which is the range over which the pilot can see along the runway.

This can be reduced if the haze is severe.

CAAS said that flights can still land at Changi Airport safely even when the Runway Visual Range is below 500 metres.

The visibility reading at Changi Airport on Thursday is between 1,500 and 1,800 metres.

From past experience, the visibility at Changi Airport due to haze has not gone below 550 metres.

During the prolonged haze period in 1997, the lowest visibility reading at Changi Airport was about 800 metres.

Asked about the haze situation, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said: "It is a matter of very serious concern as a health hazard that has not just affected Singapore but also the southern part of West Malaysia."

He said Singapore's Ambassador in Jakarta has been instructed to inform the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry that Foreign Minister George Yeo would like to speak to his Indonesian counterpart Marty Natalegawa on Friday.

Singapore's Environment and Water Resources Minister, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, has also contacted his Indonesian counterpart to register the Republic's concerns.

Separately, Channel NewsAsia has learnt that Indonesia is the only ASEAN member that has not ratified the ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution.

The news network also understands that the Indonesian State Minister for the Environment, Prof Dr Gusti Muhammad Hatta, did not attend the 6th Meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution in Brunei on October 13.

Indonesia will be assuming the ASEAN Chair next year.

Changi Airport Group raises airport charges
By Hetty Musfirah/Rachel Kelly | Posted: 03 November 2010 1553 hrs

SINGAPORE: Airlines and travellers using Changi Airport will have to pay more from April next year, following the revision of airport charges announced by the Changi Airport Group on Wednesday.

The revision includes service and security charges for transit and transfer passengers, and an increase in landing fees for airlines, which analysts said will also result in budget travellers paying more.

Departing passengers using Changi Terminals 1, 2, and 3 will not be affected.

Changi Airport handles about 37 million passengers a year - with 30 per cent on transit or making a transfer.

From April 1 next year, such travellers will be subjected to a passenger service charge of S$9 and a security service charge of S$3, which will be added to the price of the air ticket.

Changi Airport Group said transit and transfer passengers also have access to the facilities and services within the transit areas in Changi. These include the holding rooms, transfer counters and free Internet access. So it is only appropriate for them to share the costs of providing these facilities.

It added that investments in security since the September 11, 2001 attacks have resulted in higher costs.

It said fees for such transit and transfer passengers are already levied in major airports in Europe and Asia.

Travellers that Channel NewsAsia spoke to had mixed reactions.

One traveller said: "I guess S$12 is too much for a transit passenger."

However, another said: "The things you can do - eat and shop - so for me, I will be ok with it."

Changi said following a S$20 million upgrading last year, budget travellers have enjoyed an improved experience at the terminal, and there is a need to recover part of the cost of operating the terminal.

The passenger service charge for budget travellers will be raised to S$7.80 per trip, from S$4.80. The passenger security service charge, however, remains unchanged at S$8.

"As a whole, if you compare the total amount, the S$3 (increase) is not very significant," a traveller said.

"I would not think it's expensive, it's fine for me," another added.

The new fees will apply to all air tickets purchased from February 1 next year for travel on or after April 1.

Analysts said it is still too early to tell how much ticket prices will be affected, as airlines - especially those with smaller aircraft - will have to pay more landing fees.

Airlines will see a 15 per cent average increase in their landing, parking and aerobridge (LPA) bill.

Changi said expenses have increased significantly with major enhancements to infrastructure, and the current landing fees for narrow body aircraft is also disproportionately lower compared to larger aircraft types.

Low-cost carriers are no doubt unhappy with the move as it will hit them harder, but analysts said they are unlikely to see a loss of business.

Siva Govindasamy, managing editor, Asia, Flightglobal, said: "It is far easier for the full service carriers to pass on higher costs to their passengers, simply because fares are higher.

"This will affect the low cost market a lot more because it will mean higher fares for the passengers ...

"The low cost carriers which operate on the principle that you have to keep your cost base low - they are going to face higher cost and they will have no choice but to pass it on to their customers.

"So will it affect their business? Unlikely, because the low cost model is growing and there will continue to be a lot of demand for low cost travel in this part of the world."

As for full-service carriers, Singapore Airlines said that in general, any cost increase is of concern, given the fragility of the economic recovery.

Nicholas Ionides, vice president of public affairs at Singapore Airlines, added: "Where increases in fees are applied, they should be fair and equitable so that all airlines compete on a level playing field.

"Our common objective is the sustained success of Singapore as a leading aviation hub. We are appreciative of the fact that CAG consulted stakeholders as part of its review of aeronautical charges."

Jetstar said it is concerned that its cost base will rise in "this extremely competitive environment".

Both Tiger Airways and Jetstar said they will take cost adjustments into consideration when determining future capacity.

Tiger Airways added that Asia continues to hold a lot of growth potential for low cost carriers. To keep up with the region's growth potential, it is looking to expand its fleet from 21 to 26 by next March, and to 33 by the following March.

Tony Davis, president and group CEO, Tiger Airways, said: "We're saying to airports - you've got to make your facilities affordable. If we're pushing fares down and reducing our costs, we expect airports to do the same.

"We want simple basic infrastructure at a low price, and airports that deliver that to us are going to get the most growth."

The impact of the fee increase may be cushioned as Changi extends its landing fee rebate of up to 10 per cent for all airlines until 31 March 2012.

Changi said even with the landing fee revision, the airport will remain competitive.

Since the airport's opening in 1981, landing fees have been adjusted twice - in 1993 and 1995.

Qantas plane makes emergency landing in S’pore
By Ewen Boey – November 4th, 2010

Agence France Presse

(UPDATE) SINGAPORE– A troubled Qantas Airbus A380 plane landed in Singapore on Thursday with smoke coming out of its underside and was quickly surrounded by six fire engines, an AFP reporter said.

Fire engines immediately swarmed the aircraft as soon is it landed on the tarmac on Changi Airport.

“I can see smoke coming out of it,” the reporter said.

Debris including what appears to be a piece of the tail of a Qantas jet was also found in the Indonesian town of Batam after a loud mid-air explosion, a witness added.

“I didn’t see a plane crash but I heard a loud explosion in the air. There were metal shards coming down from the sky into an industrial area in Batam,” witness Noor Kanwa told AFP

Earlier reports said the plane has experienced engine trouble over Indonesian territory and attempted an emergency landing in Singapore once it had used up its fuel, an Indonesian official told AFP.

“According to the airport officials in Batam, who received radar information from Singapore, the aeroplane is trying to make an emergency landing in Singapore,” National Transportation Safety Committee head Tatang Kurniadi said.

Qantas plane in mid-air scare
By Indonesia correspondent Matt Brown and wires

Qantas says one of its passenger planes has landed safely at Singapore's Changi airport after experiencing an "engine issue" shortly after take-off.

The airline says the Airbus A380 aircraft, with 433 passengers and 26 crew aboard, made the emergency landing about 11.45am (local time).

Qantas spokeswoman Olivia Worth says all passengers and crew on flight QF32 are safe and well.

Earlier a Qantas spokesperson said the plane had been forced to shut down one of its engines.

There are reports that parts may have fallen from the plane and debris has been found on the ground on the Indonesian island of Batam.

A witness says they saw an explosion in the air over the island, south of Singapore.

The head of Indonesia's Air Transport Department says several parts from the Qantas plane crashed to earth on Batam.

The head of the local police station there says chunks of debris, several metres long, featuring red and white paint work fell in two locations.

He says a cargo door was found on a street in a housing complex and television pictures also show a large, curved piece of red metal crossed by a strip of white which resembles the distinctive curve of the flying kangaroo.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) spokesperson said the Qantas flight from Singapore to Sydney developed mechanical problems.

"The flight has landed safely at Changi Airport and there are no passengers or crew injured," the spokesperson said.

DFAT says the Australian High Commission staff are on their way to Changi to assist any Australians on board the flight.

If you are unable to contact relatives and hold concerns for their welfare, call DFAT's 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on (02) 6261 3305 or within Australia on 1300 555 135.

When contacted, a Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson from the Australian consulate in Canberra told Yahoo! Singapore, “A scheduled Qantas flight from Singapore to Sydney has developed mechanical problems and has returned Singapore. The flight has landed safely at Changi Airport and there are no passengers or crew injured.”

“Australian High Commission staff are on their way to Changi Airport to assist passengers if required,” she added.
Yahoo! Fit to Post reader, Paku B, who stays in Batam, said, “I saw with my eyes and heard with my own ears a very loud explosion. A lot of people ran outside and saw a very big airplane coming out smoke from one of wing (sic). Then so many parts of airplane body fell to the ground and some on the roof of the house.”

If you have concerns for the welfare of family and friends on board Qantas flight 32 from Singapore to Sydney, you should first attempt to contact them directly. If you are unable to contact them and still hold concerns for their welfare, you should call the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on 02 6261 3305 or within Australia on 1300 555 135 (local call cost).

Qantas 747 lands in Singapore after engine trouble
AP - Friday, November 5

SINGAPORE – A Qantas Boeing 747 with 431 people on board returned to Singapore with an engine problem shortly after takeoff Friday, a local TV station reported.

Channel News Asia quoted Qantas as saying that flight QF6 operating from Singapore to Sydney "experienced an issue with its number 1 engine" shortly after takeoff.

Qantas added that as a precaution, the captain of the jumbo jet sought priority clearance to return to Singapore, CNA reported. The aircraft landed safely, it said.

It said there were 412 passengers, three flight crew and 16 cabin crew.

The incident comes a day after an Airbus A380 superjumbo jet belonging to the Australian airline made an emergency landing in Singapore after one of its four engines suffered a blowout. That aircraft was also going to Sydney.

Qantas grounded its fleet of A380s, and other airlines made checks of their planes that have the same Rolls-Royce engine. The A380 shed debris from the busted engine onto the thickly populated Indonesian island of Batam.

Major airports capitalise on travellers’ appetite for gourmet restaurants

New York’s LaGuardia airport is the latest in a line of major airports keen to capitalise on travellers’ appetites for top-quality cuisine.

Delta Air Lines main terminal at LaGuardia has launched a new gourmet dining hall which, it is hoped, will compete for hungry travellers with the likes of the popular JetBlue lounge at rival JFK airport.

Flights comparison site by Skyscanner takes the following look at five top gourmet airport dining experiences.

LaGuardia, New York

At the heart of the new-look main terminal at LaGuardia will be a gourmet food court backed by some of the Big Apple’s top restauranteurs, such as Chris Cannon and Garrett Oliver who are keen to expand their audience and promote their main New York City eateries. The gourmet dining hall will house 13 new restaurants, including a French bistro, a fresh fish and shellfish bar, an Asian restaurant featuring traditional Vietnamese dishes and a wine bar featuring 101 premium wines.

Schiphol, Amsterdam

Europe’s third largest airport is a major hub for stopovers on long-haul flights. Luckily, there is a great range of restaurants here, including Bubbles Seafood Bar which not only features a champagne and caviar bar, but also a live aquarium where you can take a peek at your dish before it arrives on your plate.

Heathrow, London

Heathrow Airport’s £4billion Terminal 5 is not only the UK’s largest free-standing building, but also boasts some of the finest dining in the country. Among the culinary attractions is Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food, which offers a full à la carte menu carefully prepared by well-known celebrity chef and Ramsay-sidekick, Stuart Gillies.

LAX, Los Angeles

The strikingly futuristic Theme Building at LAX has been home to the Encounter Restaurant since 1997, and has attracted substantial numbers of celebrity clientele through its doors. Catering for events and private parties and housing a luxurious cocktail bar, the restaurant’s famous gourmet dishes include Belgian Endive and D’Anjou Pear Salad and is hugely popular with LA’s health-conscious crowd.

Changi, Singapore

Newly-crowned as airport of the year 2011, Changi Airport has a huge variety of top-end restaurants encompassing just about every type of major worldwide cuisine. The Green Market, a Japanese restaurant based in a tranquil eco-garden atop the departure lounge, caters for the weary traveller by providing a relaxing setting for guests to recharge their batteries and enjoy sophisticated, modern Japanese food.

Changi Airport goes green
By Bryan Huang

SINGAPORE'S Changi Airport is targeting to reduce electricity consumption and use more recycled water at its terminals over the next three years.

As part of its effort towards environmental sustainability and the Changi Airport Group's (CAG) plan to set up an Environmental Management System based on ISO 14001 standards, the CAG announced a set of targets at the 'Changi Goes Green' roadshow on Monday.

These initiatives include dimming lights at airport terminals during off-peak hours, using natural lighting where possible, and installing motion sensors in some areas.

Changi Airport will also continue to explore means to use more recycled water from 55 per cent to 58 per cent over the next three years.

The airport currently uses recycled rainwater to irrigate plants, and NEWater for airport fire-fighting, sanitation and cooling of air conditioning chillers.

Other measures to conserve water include installation of tap flow regulators in all toilet taps to limit water flow from six litres per minute to two litres per minute.
