i always find it amazing to think that even back in the days of those b&w photos of T1, plans had already been made to eventually build T3 something; that is just being realized today.
truly incredible how well planned Singapore is.

SIA, Changi gear up for competition

By Karamjit Kaur
Transport Correspondent

AS CHANGI Airport basked in forecasts of a record 30.2 million passenger arrivals this year, two industry reports have warned that Singapore's aviation industry must overcome stiff competition to succeed.

The reports - one by Singapore Airlines and the other jointly by the Ministry of Transport (MOT) and Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) - outlined a tough future for SIA and Changi.

The MOT-CAAS report said Dubai's Emirates Airlines, for example, operates more than twice as many services to Britain as SIA and has also increased its services to Australia and New Zealand.

The construction of Dubai International Airport's Terminal 3, scheduled for completion in 2006, will increase the airport's handling capacity to 70 million passengers a year.

Changi's Terminal 3, which will raise the airport's capacity to 64 million passengers per year, will not be completed until 2008.

The report said SIA must continue to innovate and improve, while Changi needs to keep reinventing itself, and increase its efficiency and cost-competitiveness.

Maintaining Singapore's status as a business centre and tourist destination will also help persuade airlines to keep using Changi as a transit point.

Bangkok's new Suvarnabhumi Airport, which will be ready late next year, will be another serious competitor.

Its growth will be fuelled by the expansion of Thai Airways. Australia's Qantas has also boosted Bangkok's aspirations, taking a 49 per cent stake in a planned new Bangkok-based cargo airline.

During a dialogue with SIA management and unions on Monday, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew echoed the findings of the reports.

The SIA report also predicted that major United States carriers, which have been hit hard by budget airlines in the domestic market, 'are planning to shift capacity away from domestic USA to what is now for them more lucrative international business'.

Cathay Pacific can also be expected to take advantage of the recently expanded air services agreement between Hong Kong and Australia and compete more aggressively for business on the kangaroo route between Britain and Australia, the report said.

SIA said the airline must continue to expand in growing markets like China and India, where Qantas, Thai Airways and Cathay Pacific are also eyeing market share.

The company has already started on cost-reduction and wage-restructuring exercises in an effort to stay competitive.

MM Lee, who held a similar dialogue in April to sort out problems between SIA management and unions, said he was confident SIA and Changi will hold their own, provided all parties work together.

He said: 'Can SIA and Changi Airport change? I say yes. Will Singapore change? I say yes.

'If we don't make this place work, we all suffer.'

Business Times - 10 Nov 2004

Changi headed for record traffic

It may handle 30.2m passengers, 1.74m tonnes of cargo in 2004

(SINGAPORE) Singapore's Changi airport is projected to handle a record 30.2 million passengers in 2004, beating the previous high of 29 million recorded two years ago before the Sars crisis, airport officials said yesterday.

Part of the robust growth this year is being generated by budget carriers now operating from Singapore, which is building a no-frills terminals to cater to this booming market segment.

On the cargo side, Changi is also expected to handle a record 1.74 million tonnes compared to the previous mark of 1.68 million tonnes set in 2000, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said.

Air traffic on routes now served by budget carriers out of Singapore increased by an average of 12 per cent between June and August from the same three-month period in 2002, according to official figures.

The traffic increase was also faster than the general 6 per cent growth recorded by Changi airport in the same three-month period.

Aviation officials consider 2002 as the proper benchmark for passenger traffic performance because last year's numbers were skewed by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (Sars) health crisis that shook the travel sector.

Singapore has embarked on a drive to become the regional hub for low-cost carriers. The three budget airlines that operate in the country now account for 5 per cent of Changi's total flights.

Two budget carriers, Valuair and Tiger Airways, are based in Singapore while a third, AirAsia, flies to Republic from Bangkok. A fourth discount carrier, Jetstar Asia, is due to begin flying from Singapore in December.

The traffic figures were released as the government vowed once again to protect Changi's position as a transit point for airlines.

'Today, Changi is an important international hub serving many key routes...Changi will have to continually re-invent the Changi Experience for passengers and be even more efficient and cost competitive to anchor our airline partners,' said a statement from the CAAS and Transport Ministry.

Singapore will also have to remain attractive as a business centre and leisure destination so that there is sufficient origin-destination traffic for airlines to continue to transit at Changi,' it said.

In July, Singapore announced it will build Asia's first dedicated low-cost terminal to cater to the growing number demand for budget airlines in the region.

The terminal, which is as big as three football fields, is expected to be ready by the middle of 2006. - AFP

Weee....well good to see the government making a strong stand to defend the airport hub status. It should be waking up to the fact that Bangkok is gaining too much ground!

More S'pore-India flights on the way

By VEN SREENIVASAN

(SINGAPORE) For Singapore travellers who reckon they're paying too much for a three-hour flight to the Indian sub-continent, the remarks by Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel last week were music to their ears.

The minister said he would seek clearance from the Indian Cabinet to allow domestic private carriers to fly to South-east Asia and elsewhere. Under a new proposal, Indian private carriers such as Jet Airways and Air Sahara could be allowed to fly to destinations in South-east Asia and elsewhere using air rights that are unused by Air India and Indian Airlines.

The move seems to be in line with the proposals of the government-appointed Naresh Chandra Committee, which has urged the Indian government to expedite the liberalisation of air transport services and civil aviation infrastructure in the face of severe under-capacity on both fronts.

Mr Patel also hinted that foreign investments might be allowed in the two national carriers. But there was no mention of whether foreign carriers would be granted more air rights.

It is the worst-kept secret in local aviation circles that flights to India offer one of the best yields on any short-haul routes anywhere in the world.

On average, a return ticket between Singapore and Mumbai costs around $900, depending on the season - the same price for a return ticket to London or Auckland.

In all, there are 188 weekly flights between Singapore and 11 cities in India. Yet, fares are high because of the severe under-capacity in seats.

Singapore Airlines would welcome more rights into and out of India. So would South-east Asian low-cost carriers.

Cheap flights out of Changi and from Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi to Singapore is a potentially huge and lucrative market for Tiger Airways, Valuair, and Jetstar Asia.

India ranks among the top three markets in tourist arrivals to Singapore. Indian tourists have consistently been among the biggest spenders here, with their expenditure on shopping and hotels doubling each year over the past few years.

But new entrants require air rights which are negotiated on a government-to-government basis. Singapore and India inked their Air Service Agreement in January 1968 and revised it in June 2002.

While the Singapore government has been ready and willing to grant rights for more India flights from the Changi hub, the Indian government, concerned about the impact of unfettered competition on its national flag carriers, has tended to take a more cautious approach.

The reason for this is simple. Air India and Indian Airlines, with their relatively small and ageing fleets, are ill-prepared for competition. So while foreign carriers like SIA are using all their capacity, the two national carriers are using only around 30 per cent of their flight rights.

But the Indian carriers have submitted fleet expansion proposals to their government. Indian Airlines is planning to buy 43 Airbus planes, while Air India wants to add some 18 aircraft to its fleet. Still, the earliest that the new planes will go into service is towards the end of this decade.

Despite its concerns, India has been gradually opening up its domestic market in the last three years. Homegrown low-cost and discount carriers like Air Deccan, Kingfisher, Sahara and Jet serve the domestic market and even fly to other destinations on the subcontinent.

The emergence of the new players, in turn, has created a surge in demand for air travel, with domestic passenger traffic surging 20 per cent to around 15 million last year.

The Sydney-based Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation expects Indian domestic passenger traffic to grow to 50 million in five years, which would still be just a drop in the ocean for a nation of one billion people.

On the international front, the Indian government recently granted designated airlines from nine countries rights to operate a daily service to any two cities in India, on a reciprocal basis. And it has been talking about inking new bilateral air services deals with various governments in Europe and Asia.

Nicholas Ionides of the aviation journal Flight International sees this trend picking up momentum over the next few years.

'The government has become more receptive to the idea of air liberalisation as they see how China has reaped huge economic benefits from opening up its aviation market during the last 18 months,' he said.

Of course, new start-ups like Sahara and Jet have also been lobbying aggressively for rights to operate international routes. Jet, which is owned by Naresh Goyal, is already in talks with the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore to operate flights between Indian cities and Singapore.

These could start by the first quarter of next year. This would pose competition to incumbents SIA, Air India and Indian Airlines.

SIA, which makes 61 weekly flights to 10 Indian cities, says it welcomes the prospect of more open skies in India. 'We'd obviously like to see a growth pattern for capacity to India, and think that we can do more work in overseas markets to help grow demand for tourism and, importantly, business travel, to India,' said SIA spokesman Stephen Forshaw.

'While most of our customers who are flying the Singapore-India route join in Singapore or India, we also carry sizeable numbers of passengers from source markets which rely on Changi as a hub to reach India.'

Despite the slow progress, there is no denying that a combination of pent-up demand, huge under-capacity and the economic imperative is prying open the huge Indian aviation market.

Lounge wizards

The fight to win over and retain priority passengers isn't confined to flights. It carries on in Changi Airport's transit lounges too

By Sandra Leong


THEY'RE not bad places to be stuck in if your plane is delayed.

Swanky airport lounges - for first- and business-class travellers, that is.

There are 13 such lounges at Changi Airport, catering predominantly to passengers who may pay up to 10 times more for their plane ticket than economy-class travellers.

The lounges, used by passengers in transit or those waiting to join a flight, have been around since the early 1980s. But more airlines have rolled out the red-carpet treatment in recent years.

Because an average passenger may spend only 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours in a lounge, every second counts towards impressing him, say airlines.

'Before, the lounge was just seen as a transit area. Now, it's a way to ensure customer loyalty,' says Mr Sabry Sharif, manager of Golden Lounge Global for Malaysia Airlines, which has a lounge in Terminal 2.

Tucked away from the crowded general transit areas, these lounges offer you a 'chance to get away from the stress of travel', says Mr Rob McDonald, marketing manager for Qantas and British Airways South East Asia.

In various customer surveys, members of the British Airways Executive Club - the airline's frequent flyer programme - have voted access to the lounge as one of the most important benefits of being in the club, he adds.

At most lounges, you can grab a bite or drink, surf the Internet, take a shower or check in for your flight, all for free.

British Airways shares a 1,008 sq m first class lounge with codeshare partner Qantas in Terminal 1. This reopened in 2001 after a refurbishment to triple the size of the facility which was set up in 1997. The company did not want to reveal how much was spent on this.

The largest of the pre-flight oases is run by national carrier Singapore Airlines. Located in Terminal 2, its Silver Kris Lounge, which comprises lounges for first- and Raffles-class passengers over 3,000 sq m of space, cost a hefty $5.3 million.

Opened in 2000, it replaced the one built in 1990. It recently refurbished its first-class wing at a cost of about $900,000, doubling its original capacity to 170.

For other airlines not prepared to have a stand- alone facility, ground handler Singapore Airport Terminal Services operates a Sats Premier Lounge.

Set up in 1981, it services 30 airlines.

The dogfight for business continues, with Emirates recently unveiling plans to build a lounge in Terminal 1.

This is good news for people like Mr Patrick Imbardelli, managing director of the InterContinental Hotels group for Asia Pacific.

'As a first-class passenger, I should not have to queue for anything,' he says.

'If I want access to a computer, one should be available. If I want to get some food or read a paper, I should be able to.'


Besides armchairs, the SIA Silver Kris Lounge's First Class Wing offers massage chairs and slumberettes.


The Qantas/British Airways lounge boasts a Zen-inspired shower facility where 10 shower cubicles surround a two-tonne granite dome sculpture.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES GOLDEN LOUNGE

THIS resort-style lounge, which is the second largest MAS lounge outside Kuala Lumpur, is designed to reflect Malaysia's culture.

Location: Terminal 2, Level 3

Capacity: 50

Serves: MAS first, business class, Platinum Club and Enrich Gold passengers

Open: 5.30am to 9pm

Ambience: The smallest of the lot and the most un-businesslike, it is no less pleasing to the senses.

Earthy colours are played up to adhere to the tropical theme. Sofas are a calming beige and blue while timber partitions separate the main lounge from the sleeping area.

Malaysian artefacts like earthen pots accessorise the place.

Relax: In terms of quality, this lounge is by far the most generous with sleeping facilities.

Instead of the narrow chaise longues found at some other lounges, recline on two wide day beds partitioned off and bathed in cosy dim lighting. Pillows and blankets are available upon request.

It also has a Muslim prayer room.

Watch: Two small TV areas by the side ensure that the privacy of resting guests is not disturbed.

Eat: Fill up with finger food like sandwiches and spring rolls. Unfortunately, there is no bistro, unlike MAS' flagship lounge in Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Shower: Two shower rooms are available.

Work: There is one computer terminal and two Local Area Network ports.


No narrow chaise longues at the Malaysia Airlines lounge. Here, you get wide day beds, pillows and blankets.
