IN PARLIAMENT
Another $300m for airlines at Changi

The fund is meant to strengthen the airport's hub status and partnerships

By ALEXANDRA HO

THE Air Hub Development Fund, introduced in 2003, has proven so effective in attracting airlines to operate or expand their services here that the government will launch a new one next year when the existing fund expires at the end of the year.

The new $300 million fund is meant to strengthen Changi Airport's hub status and its partnership with airlines, Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong said during the committee of supply debate in Parliament yesterday.

'About $100 million will be set aside each year to fund traffic development and cost reduction initiatives,' he said.

The fund will be disbursed over three years, though details are not available just yet. A Ministry of Transport spokesperson said more details will be out later this year.

Mr Yeo told Parliament that the existing $210 million fund had facilitated airlines' growth and reduced their operating costs. This, in turn, resulted in a record 30.4 million passengers and 1.8 million tonnes of cargo handled last year.

Changi's network has also expanded to more than 170 cities.

Under the scheme, airlines enjoy a 15 per cent discount on landing fees at Changi and Seletar airports. Rental charges at both airports and Changi Airfreight centre are also slashed by 15 per cent, benefiting shops and other tenants. Other measures include incentives for airlines to expand their network out of Changi.

A Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore spokesperson told BT that to date, $110 million of the fund has been given out.

Asked about the impact of low-cost carriers (LCCs), Mr Yeo said traffic growth on key routes served by LCCs exceeded Changi's overall traffic growth.

'For the Singapore-Bangkok route, year-on-year traffic for the last quarter of last year grew 18 per cent,' said Mr Yeo.

Changi Airport passenger traffic continues rise in February


SINGAPORE - Singapore's Changi Airport saw continued growth in passenger traffic in February, boosted by stronger demand during the Lunar New Year holidays, civil aviation officials said on Wednesday.

Some 2.31 million travellers passed through the airport in February, up 6.2 per cent over the same month last year, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said in a statement.

Passenger traffic rose 3.2 per cent to 4.84 million for the first two months of 2005.

The airport handled 127,490 tonnes of cargo in January, a 6.5-per cent fall compared to the previous year, although overall air freight rose 3.4 per cent for the first two months of 2005.

Changi witnessed its busiest year ever in 2004, handling 30.35 million passengers and 1.78 million tonnes of cargo, reflecting the travel industry's rebound from the severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak in 2003.

ST Aerospace opens new S$12m hangar to service narrow-body aircraft
By Michael Lim, Channel NewsAsia

ST Aerospace has added a new hangar to service Boeing 737, 757 and Airbus A320 planes.

The new facility will allow the company to go for a bigger share of the global Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul, or MRO, market.

And ST Aerospace says it wants to get even bigger.

It is already looking to set up a new hangar in Changi Airport.

The new $12 million hangar at Seletar Airport is the fourth to be operated by ST Aerospace.

It was officially opened by Minister of State for Trade and Industry Heng Chee How on Wednesday.

ST Aerospace says the new hangar is targeted at low cost carriers, and it is expected to create some 200 jobs.

But it is just one part of the company's expansion plans.

Tay Kok Khiang, President, ST Aerospace, said: "We just build a wide body hangar in Paya Lebar during Asian Aerospace 2004. Now we have added this. We are looking at another new hangar in Changi so that is what we will do on a progressive basis. As I said, it depends on the business case and the customer potential and whether we are in need of additional space or not."

AirAsia is one key customer - and it says it's not ruling out engaging ST Aerospace to retrofit all 100 of its new A320 planes.

Tony Fernandes, Group CEO, AirAsia, said: "There is a potential...we have not negotiated anything. We have a good relationship with ST but we have to wait and see."

The aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul business contributes some S$1 billion annually to the ST group. - CNA
