A Helping Hand at Changi Airport - Courtesy of Changi Senior Ambassadors
Collaboration between CAAS and RSVP Singapore aims to promote active aging

Seniors volunteering at the airport to provide assistance to passengers, to promote active aging in Singapore - that is the aim of the new Changi Senior Ambassador (CSA) initiative launched by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) in collaboration with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Programme, Singapore (RSVP Singapore).

The CSAs will be stationed at various areas of the Departure / Transit Malls of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, such as the information counters, GST refund counters and arrival immigration halls. The CSAs will rove around their designated locations to assist passengers with their queries. All CSA volunteers underwent three days of training, which covered familiarisation with the airport’s services, facilities and service quality standards. Some 100 volunteers, whose ages range between 54 and 80, are participating in the initiative, which will be implemented for an initial period of six months. The CSAs will be deployed during Changi Airport’s evening peak period from 5pm to 9pm. On average, about 12 CSAs will be deployed daily.

CAAS' Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lim Kim Choon, said, "CAAS is pleased to collaborate with RSVP to promote active aging in Singapore. The Changi Senior Ambassador initiative will not only allow seniors to continue contributing actively to society but will also provide volunteers with the opportunity to meet and interact with travellers from all over the world." The CSAs will complement some 260 Changi Youth Ambassadors (CYA) currently deployed at Changi Airport. Mr Lim said, "The Changi Senior Ambassador programme follows the success of the Changi Youth Ambassador programme which has received positive feedback from passengers." Examples of assistance rendered by the CYAs include providing directions to airport facilities, services and gate holdrooms.

The programme got the thumbs up from RSVP's President, Dr Philbert Chin. "This major outdoor initiative would give credence to RSVP's drive to motivate seniors to practice active aging by volunteering themselves. This is in line with our major focus of making RSVP the organisation of senior volunteers."

About RSVP

RSVP Singapore (Retired & Senior Volunteer Programme, Singapore) was launched in October 1998 by then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong with the mission to provide opportunities for seniors to serve the community with their talent and experience and make their lives meaningful and enjoyable through volunteerism. As a non-profit organisation operating under the auspices of the National Council of Social Service and supported by the Ministry of Community Development, Sports and Youth and Council for Third Age, RSVP believes that seniors are national assets and its volunteers have something unique and important to contribute towards the well-being of the community. Central to RSVP's community service programmes are Mentoring, Cyberguide, Mentally Disadvantaged Outreach and Public Education which promotes Active Ageing and Intergenerational Integration.

Changi Airport's T3 set to wow visitors the moment they step in
Built at a cost of $1.75b, the terminal will open for operations on Jan 9

By VEN SREENIVASAN

WHILE the Airbus A380 superjumbo has grabbed the headlines of late, the spotlight will soon fall on the terminal from which many of these aircraft will take off in the years to come.

And as passengers wait for their flights at Changi Airport's Terminal 3, which opens for operations on Jan 9, they will actually be able to admire the scenery outside - including watching planes land and take off. It's a next-generation airport, worthy of the next-generation aircraft.

Built at a cost of some $1.75 billion, this 380,000 sq metre, seven-storey building - with three basement levels and four above ground - will handle up to 22 million passengers a year, raising Changi's total capacity to 70 million.

Terminal 3's anchor tenant will be Singapore Airlines, which plans to move more than half its operations from T2, where it is currently housed. Four other airlines have so far signed up to join SIA at the new terminal.

The spanking new facility will boast 28 aerobridges, including eight to cater for the Airbus A380. It will also have four extra-long A380 purpose-built belts and 132 check-in counters (compared to 160 in T1 and 144 in T2).

Its 100 shops and more than 40 food and beverage outlets will add to Changi Airport's existing 29,000 sq m of retail and F&B space.

DFS Group, which raked in sales of more than $250 million last year, will be an anchor tenant at T3 - as it is at the other terminals - after clinching the tobacco and liquor retail franchise for the airport for three years.

It sealed the deal by offering the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) a minimum monthly guarantee of $10.17 million in Year 1, with the amount going up to $10.5 million by the third year.

As Transport Minister Raymond Lim put it, T3 will have that 'wow' factor which will hit visitors the moment they step into its giant lobby.

The size of 63 football fields, the terminal is served by 6.5 km-long elevated tracks via which skytrains will take passengers between the three terminals.

The 1.7 km-long T3 alone will have three of the total seven stations in the network, transporting passengers heading for the furthest gates on both sides of this huge complex.

Visitors and passengers walking into the giant lobby from the land side will be greeted by a five-storey high vertical garden, called the 'Green Wall'. Spanning 300 metres across the main building, and covered with climbing plants and interspersed with four cascading waterfalls, it can be seen from both the Departure and Arrival Halls.

And from above, the entire public area of the complex is illuminated by skylights on the roof, which is equipped with 919 skylight panels which allow natural daylight into the entire building via 'smart' self-adjusting reflectors.

On the air-side, the new T3 has three giant passenger gate-hold areas that can serve up to five flights at the same time, and hold up to 2,000 passengers each.

Terminal 3 also boasts a high-speed inter-terminal baggage transfer system and an automated early bag storage facility.

Baggage of transfer passengers making connections at different terminals will be transported individually through underground tunnels at a remarkable speed of seven metres per second. This means it will take only about three minutes for a bag to be transported through the underground baggage tunnel between Terminals 2 and 3.

Adjacent to the new terminal is a 350-room five-star airport hotel with a swimming pool, restaurants, conference rooms and a spa, among other facilities.

T3 opens amid increasingly intense competition in civil aviation.

As the sixth busiest airport in the Asia-Pacific and the busiest hub airport in the region, Changi's position as a pan-Asian air hub underscores Singapore's strategic purpose to be a leading global financial centre and key economic hub.

Last year, the Singapore airport was ranked 22nd among the world's busiest airports by passenger volume, with a total of 35 million passengers, or an 8 per cent increase over 2005.

Passenger traffic is likely to hit 40 million this year.

The airport has also done well financially.

CAAS, which operates Changi and is also the air transport regulator for Singapore, made a record surplus of $398.3 million for FY05/06 - up 14 per cent from $349.5 million the previous year (FY06/07 numbers will be released soon).

This came on the back of record revenues of $1.4 billion, boosted by robust passenger and aircraft traffic, as well as higher spending in shops and restaurants. CAAS gets 60 per cent of its revenue from commercial, non-aeronautical activities such as shop-floor rental.

But the multiple-award winning airport (it was recently voted the 'Best Airport in the World' for the 20th year in a row by global business travellers) is facing increasing competition and challenges.

Analysts have warned that Changi Airport's traffic growth could plateau as global business attention is diverted from South-east Asia to powerhouses China and India.

And one of its greatest challenges is retaining and attracting talent.

Over the past three years, Changi has lost many experienced staff to upstarts around Asia. While CAAS does not keep tabs on who goes where, anecdotal evidence suggests that India and the Middle East have been the biggest poachers so far, with China not far behind.

To meet some of these challenges, the airport is looking into corporatising some of its operations.

Besides retaining and attracting talent through better remuneration and rewards, such a move is also aimed at enabling the airport operator to respond quickly and nimbly to changing market circumstances.

And with air traffic expected to triple worldwide over the next 20 years, Changi Airport, through its wholly owned unit Changi Airports International (CAI), has been aggressively building a portfolio of assets in key markets like India, China, Russia and the Middle East. Terminal 3 will be the jewel in its crown.

CAAS Launches Flight Information Sources for Singapore Airlines Customers at Changi Airport

Singapore Changi Airport's new Terminal 3 will allow Singapore Airlines to expand its operations at the airline's hub airport. Singapore Airlines will operate from both Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 when Terminal 3 opens its doors on 9 January 2008. To complement Singapore Airlines' expanded operations, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has launched various information sources, such as the Internet, television, telephone and airport directories, which could be used to check flight details.

Singapore Airlines has announced that its long-haul flights will depart from Terminal 3 while short-haul and regional flights will operate out of Terminal 2. As for arriving flights, the terminals for arrival flights will be confirmed about two hours before the actual time of arrival. CAAS would like to advise Singapore Airlines passengers as well as their family, friends, meeters and greeters to check flight details before heading for Changi Airport and to confirm it again when they are at the airport. CAAS will make available details on departing and arriving flights in the following off-airport and at-airport information sources:

1. Internet
Changi Airport website www.changiairport.com

2. Television
* Teletext (a text based television flight information service)
* Flight information televisions located at the Check-in Halls, Departure / Transit Malls and Arrival Halls of the airport

3. Telephone
Changi Airport's toll-free flight enquiry hotline 1800-542-4422

4. Others
At Changi Airport, passengers can also refer to the enhanced airport directories and way finding signs to check Singapore Airlines flight information and the corresponding terminals.

In addition, departing passengers can also check their Singapore Airlines e-ticket and boarding passes for flight departure terminal details. They can also visit Singapore Airlines website at www.singaporeair.com

Travelling between terminals at Changi Airport will be very easy on the state-of-the-art Skytrain system - an automated people mover system which has seven stations located throughout the airport's public and transit areas. The Skytrain system will provide seamless and convenient inter-terminal transfers between Changi Airport's terminals. Travel time on the Skytrain system will range between 2 minutes and 4 minutes.

CAAS and Singapore Airlines will be jointly producing brochures containing details on Singapore Airlines' flights in Terminal 2 and Terminal 3, as well as flight information sources. These brochures will be made available at Changi Airport and will be distributed to Singapore Airlines' overseas stations, diplomatic and consular corps in Singapore, and travel industry partners such as the Singapore Hotels Association and the National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS).

Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, CAAS said, "Changi Airport is Singapore Airlines' hub airport and the opening of the new Terminal 3 will provide added terminal capacity to support Singapore Airlines' expanded operations." Mr Lim added, "We are excited about the opening of Terminal 3 and look forward to sharing the unique and memorable T3 experience with Singapore Airlines passengers on 9 January 2008."

The 380,000 square metres Terminal 3, located directly opposite Terminal 2, is a 7-storey building with three basements and four above ground levels. The S$1.75 billion terminal will add an additional capacity of 22 million passengers per year to Changi Airport, bringing the airport's total annual handling capability to about 70 million passengers. Terminal 3 will feature innovative breakthroughs such as a unique roof designed to let natural light into the building while keeping out the tropical heat. There will also be a 'Green Wall' which is a 300-metre span of creeper plants interspersed with four cascading waterfalls.

Besides Singapore Airlines, four other airlines namely China Eastern Airlines, Jet Airways, Qatar Airways and United Airlines, will operate from Terminal 3. These four airlines will start at Terminal 3 at a later date around March 2008.

Singapore Concludes Air Transport Agreement with Canada

Singapore and Canada have initialed a new air transport agreement, following bilateral air services consultations in Ottawa, Canada from 30 October to 1 November 2007 in Ottawa, Canada.

Under the new bilateral agreement, Singapore carriers are allowed to operate passenger and all-cargo flights as frequently as desired between Singapore and Canada, via selected intermediate points. In addition, they may code-share either with one another, with any Canadian or third country airlines. Code-sharing enables an airline to market its partner airlines' flights as its own, and offers an additional means for airlines to serve a market without having to deploy its own aircraft. Canadian carriers enjoy similar traffic rights and code-share privileges under the reciprocal arrangement.

"This new agreement represents a significant step in further strengthening the bilateral relations between Singapore and Canada. It demonstrates our two countries' commitment to pursue a common goal of achieving a more liberal aviation framework in the global aviation arena," said Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, who led the Singapore delegation in the negotiations. He added "I am confident this agreement would be a bridge to promote greater tourism, trade and investment flows between Singapore and Canada."

Singapore Airlines currently operates 6 weekly passenger flights between Singapore and Vancouver via Seoul.

Changi eyes Abu Dhabi airport stake
Reuters
Published: November 07, 2007, 23:32

Singapore: Singapore's Changi Airports International is keen on a stake in Abu Dhabi's international airport and is also eyeing two smaller terminals in China for takeover, its chief said yesterday.

Changi Airports clinched an 18-month contract to operate the Abu Dhabi government-owned airport in December, and is angling to turn this into equity as authorities have said the airport was likely to be privatised by next year.

"We've made it known to the Abu Dhabi authorities that we would like to be considered. They will hopefully take into account our relationship for the past year," chief executive Chow Kok Fong said.

Chow said financial terms of such a stake are not yet available, but added: "There's no reason why we won't want to take up as much as possible."

Globally, airports such as Germany's Fraport, Amsterdam's Schiphol Group and South Korea's Incheon International are also seeking stakes in airports in emerging markets like India, the Middle East and China to capture their rapid growth.

Changi Airports, the overseas investment arm of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, which owns and operates the city-state's Changi Airport, paid $138 million in January for 29 per cent of China's Nanjing Lukou International Airport, and has management contracts with airports in Russia and India.

In July, it entered a joint venture with China's Shenzhen Airport Group to invest in and manage up to 50 airports in China.

Two deals

Chow said the China JV currently has two likely deals on the table, but declined to give a timeline as to when these will be concluded.

He said the company does not have funding constraints, adding: "Changi Airport typically makes about $400 million every year, so we have a very strong cashflow."

And while Singapore state investment firm Temasek Holdings has run increasingly into road blocks overseas, amidst rising wariness of sovereign wealth funds and their motives, Chow said this was "not an issue" for Changi Airports.

"We've not encountered any difficulties along those lines yet. We are perceived as an operator-centric kind of player, and the industry knows we do not get into a position just for a financial stake," Chow said.

In August, the Singapore government announced plans to "corporatise" CAAS, currently a state agency, meaning it will operate like a business, but will stop short of being privatised as the government wants to retain full control for strategic reasons.

Changi Airport's New Terminal 3 Will Offer Wide Spread of 'First-Of-Its-Kind' Shopping and Dining Treats
More floor space in public area dedicated to retail and food & beverage outlets







Singapore Changi Airport's new Terminal 3 (T3), which opens for flight operations on 9 January 2008, will be a shopping and dining haven, not only for travellers but for airport visitors as well. T3 has attracted numerous retail and food & beverage (F&B) operators, many of which will be launching their maiden businesses at the airport. In addition, a number of "first-of-its-kind" outlets, the introduction of innovative and interactive features in shops' concepts as well as greater presence of popular retail and dining establishments will exude vibrancy to T3's shopping and dining scene. A new consideration by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) in commercial space planning at the new terminal is the allocation of a considerably larger floor area for shopping and dining outlets at T3's public areas.

T3's Retail and F&B Floor Space
T3 will have 20,000 sqm of floor space dedicated to about 100 retail and over 40 F&B outlets. With T3, Changi Airport's total retail and F&B space will be increased from the current 28,000sqm, in T1 and T2, to 48,000 sqm, representing an increase of over 70%. Of the 20,000sqm of floor space in T3, 11,400 sqm will be within the Departure / Transit Mall for about 55 retail and 20 F&B outlets. T3's public area, with about 45 retail and 20 F&B outlets over five levels of the terminal, will have 8,600 sqm of space, an increase of 10% compared to the combined retail and F&B area in T1 and T2.

Retail and F&B Outlets in T3 Public Area
To cater to the increasing patronage of the retail and F&B outlets at Changi Airport, mainly by Singaporeans and local residents, in addition to larger floor space, new shopping and dining zones will be introduced at T3's public areas. Besides having retail and F&B outlets at the departure and arrival levels, there will also be outlets located on Basement 2, Level 3 and, at the Viewing Mall on Level 4 where airport visitors can enjoy the vantage view of planes taking-off and landing. Basement 2, which is accessible to the Mass Rapid Transit train station, bus station and car parks, will have a food court KOPI, and several retail and dining outlets, such as Candy Empire and Swatch. On Level 3, a visual icon and centerpiece is a lighted "orchid" design structure which towers over the terminal's central Departure Immigration Entrance. This unique location will house the Crystal Jade Shanghai Restaurant.

Mr Lim Kim Choon, CAAS Director-General and Chief Executive Officer said, "Shopping and dining at Changi Airport will reach a new level when Terminal 3 opens. The increased floor space dedicated for commercial activities at the new terminal gives us the opportunity to provide a wider variety and unique retail and dining treats for our travellers and airport visitors to enjoy."

New Brands and Innovative Concepts at T3
T3 will see many businesses stepping into the airport retail business for the first time. Among these are Sony Style and FIFA Official Store which will be opening their first airport outlet in T3's Departure / Transit Mall. Apple i-Store will be setting up their first full-fledged airport concept store while Ferrari as well asfashion stores, Marc O'Polo and Fat Face, will be opening their first airport outlet outside Europe. Changi Airport will also be the first outlet in Singapore to launch La Perla, an internationally renowned lingerie concept store.

Travellers in the Departure / Transit Mall can also look forward to enjoying a mix of interesting new dining concepts from established local and international brands. These include the first Hard Rock Café in a major international airport and a wine & tapas bar by Il Lido Wine & Tapas Lounge. Other food & beverage "firsts" include the first Guylian Belgium Chocolate Café outside Belgium and the first airport microbrewery in Asia where travellers can enjoy beer that will be freshly brewed on site by popular local microbrewery restaurant, Brewerkz. In addition, Post Bar, operated by Fullerton Hotel, will be introduced at the central area of the Departure / Transit Mall. Set amid lush landscaping and with a cascading waterfall, the bar and its plush lounge seating offer the relaxing setting for travellers to unwind while waiting for their flights.

While T3 will have the usual travel-retail offerings such as liquor & tobacco, perfumes & cosmetics, books, watches and pharmacy, innovative retail concepts and features will also be introduced. For example, travellers will enjoy innovative elements at T3's perfumes & cosmetics outlets which will have a full suite of beauty services such as a spa cabin, make-up studio, concierge services and fragrance sensory Internet kiosks.

Mr Lim said, "I am also delighted that Terminal 3 presents a new business opportunity for many established commercial operators to either set up their first-ever airport outlets or to establish their presence in the airport environment. More than 35% of the retailers at Terminal 3 are new to Changi Airport and all set to tap on a guaranteed captive international market to grow their businesses here."

When T3 opens, there will be about 230 retail and over 110 food & beverage outlets spread across 48,000 sqm of commercial floor space at Changi Airport.
