Erm people, this rating is based on airport lounges... so Suvarnabhumi in this list is well justified and should be higher on the list actually.

Have they completed the new glass rooflight yet? Terminal 1 would appear very different with the introduction of natural light into the interior.

Eager to see the completion of the renovation of T1.....

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.
