Changi Airport can handle traffic growth: Transport Minister
By Sharon See | Posted: 23 November 2010 2226 hrs

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport's total capacity of 73 million passenger movements per year is sufficient to cope with traffic growth in the near to medium term.

Transport Minister Raymond Lim said this in a written reply to MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC Dr Lam Pin Min's question on Changi Airport's growth.

He said this is about 45 per cent more than the 40 million passenger movements that the Changi Airport Group (CAG) expects in 2010.

Changi Airport handled more than 34 million passengers in the first ten months of this year, which is a 15 per cent year-on-year increase over 2009.

Changi also handled over 1.5 million tonnes of cargo in the same period this year, a 13 per cent year-on-year increase.

The International Air Transport Association has projected strong traffic growth of about 35 per cent for the Asia Pacific region over the next four years, driven by the robust economic growth of major economies like China and India.

"Building capacity ahead of demand has been a key driver for the success of Changi Airport, and the regulatory framework will ensure that post-corporatisation, there will continue to be sufficient capacity at Changi Airport to handle future increases in traffic," Mr Lim said.

Changi Airport was corporatised in July last year, and with it came a regulatory framework to provide investment by CAG in airport infrastructure, runways and other facilities.

Changi 2010 Passenger Numbers Will Rise to 40 Million, Minister Lim Says
By Chan Sue Ling - Nov 24, 2010 9:39 AM GMT+0800

Changi Airport Group, the operator of Singapore’s main airfield, expects to handle a record 40 million passengers in 2010 as air travel rebounds from the worst recession in six decades, Transport Minister Raymond Lim said.

The company known as CAG received more than 34 million passengers in the first 10 months of 2010, 15 percent higher than the year before, Lim said in a written reply to questions asked in parliament that was posted on the ministry’s website yesterday. The operator handled 1.5 million tons of cargo in the period, 13 percent more than a year earlier, he said.

Singapore, facing competition from newer and bigger airports in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai, has added a third terminal and another for low-cost airlines to tap growth in Asia. Travel within the Asia-Pacific region overtook intra-North American travel as the world’s biggest aviation market last year, the International Air Transport Association said in February.

“With the corporatization of Changi Airport in July 2009, a regulatory framework has been put in place to provide for timely investment by CAG in airport infrastructure, runways and other facilities,” Lim said.

Last year, Singapore’s government set up a company to manage the island’s airfield to enable it to expand and raise funds. The country’s three main terminals, along with the budget airline facility, can handle a total of 73 million passenger movements annually, according to Lim.

Singapore was Asia’s fifth busiest airfield by total passenger movements in 2009, handling more than 37 million passengers, according to the Airports Council International, an association representing airport operators worldwide.

Airlines in Asia Pacific are set to post a combined profit of $5.2 billion this year, the biggest profit of any region this year, according to the air transport association.

Changi sees 7.9% growth in Oct passenger traffic
By NISHA RAMCHANDANI

DOUBLE digit growth in passenger traffic to and from Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and the Americas helped fuel a 7.9 per cent growth in passenger movements to more than 3.58 million at Changi Airport last month.

From the ten month period spanning Jan to Oct, passenger movements totalled nearly 34.4 million - up 14.5 per cent year on year - with low cost carriers making up 22 per cent of total passenger movements.

Aircraft movements went up 7.2 per cent to 22,488 in Oct and up nearly 10 per cent to 217,382 for the Jan-Oct period.

Since 31 October, airlines have added services to Northeast and Southeast Asia to cities such as Hong Kong, Manila and Kuala Lumpur.

On the cargo front, 162,400 tonnes of airfreight were moved in October - an increase of 5.2 per cent - while over 1.5 million tonnes were handled for the ten month period, which represents a 13 per cent increase over the corresponding period last year.

Changi is one of only three five star airports in the world. The other two being Chek Lap Kok in Hong Kong and Seoul Incheon. It has won many awards throughout its 29 years in service!

On-airport facility dedicated to handling perishable cargo opens
By Ryan Huang | Posted: 26 November 2010 2040 hrs

SINGAPORE : Singapore has opened the first on-airport facility in Asia dedicated to handling perishable cargo.

The facility, built at a cost of S$16.5 million, is owned by gateway services and food-solutions provider SATS.

Thanks to its ability to better process and forward perishable cargo such as fresh produce and pharmaceuticals, Coolport is expected to create new trade flows through Singapore.

The facility is currently about 60 per cent utilised, and is expected to reach full capacity in two years.

SATS is currently in discussions with customers that could see utilisation reach 80 per cent by mid-2011.

Packing fresh-cut flowers for redistribution is one of the valued-added services that is offered at Coolport.

It is now possible because temperatures are controlled throughout the warehouse, which - depending on the produce - can be as low as minus 28 degrees celsius.

This means products are kept at desired temperatures virtually from the moment they are offloaded from the plane, and through various stages of handling. SATS previously handled perishable cargo in 17 cold rooms located across four warehouses. A dedicated facility allows the processing of fresh produce and other cargo for onward shipment, either by air or sea.

Clement Woon, president and CEO of SATS, said: "In the old way, you actually have to take it off the airport, repack it so that it can go into this small little chiller...It is not really efficient and a lot of working spaces are at an ambient temperature and our ambient temperature is at 30 degrees or so. Now the ambient temperature is at 6 to 10 degrees.

"Maybe about 20 per cent to 30 per cent of food never reaches the table because it is destroyed along the cold chain. (We are) hoping that by putting this thing together, we will be able to reduce the amount that will be destroyed in the logistics process."

Coolport's operator SATS said it had refurbished one of its warehouses to build the facility.

This was in order to tap growth opportunities in the perishable-goods segment, amidst declining volumes in general cargo.

SATS said perishable cargo makes up about 10 per cent of worldwide air cargo, and is expected to grow by up to 8 per cent every year.

Mr Woon said: "Unfortunately over the last few years, cargo in Singapore has come down, so we actually take the opportunity to reconfigure this terminal into a perishable handling unit. So that helps to actually bring back some of the capacity, and optimise the other areas."

The facility comes online just months after the opening of Freeport in May, a similar facility at Changi Airport that specialises in the storage of valuable art and assets.

Lim Hwee Hua, Second Minister for Finance and Transport, and Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, said: "These new innovative on-airport facilities will allow our valued partners in the airlines and air freight industries to develop more comprehensive and differentiated business solutions that target new market segments, as well as to tap on the rapid growth of Asia.

"The growth of Asia as a key healthcare market has also resulted in greater requirement for stringent control in the distribution of healthcare products. With these changing demand patterns and new requirements, reliable cold chain facilities and perishables handling centres are becoming increasingly important."

While SATS expects the new facility to have a positive impact on its bottomline, it declined to speculate on a figure.

Mr Woon said: "This will be incremental. We are realigning our resources into our central facility; that will give us the capabilities as we work on the new accounts that will let us go up to 80 per cent.

"We will be able to then take that incremental into the bottom line. I will not say how much it is at the present moment, but certainly, it will be a positive impact when we actually have reached that capacity level that we have planned."

Coolport has about 8,000 square metres of space, and can be expanded through conversion to 14,000 square metres. It will be able to handle 250,000 tonnes of cargo a year, for a start.

Operating indicators for October 2010

SINGAPORE, 25 November 2010 – More than 3.58 million passenger movements were registered at Singapore Changi Airport in October 2010, a growth of 7.9% compared to October 2009. This was driven by double digit growth in passenger traffic to and from Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and the Americas.

From January to October 2010, passenger movements grew 14.5% to almost 34.4 million, with low cost carriers accounting for about 22% of total passenger movements.

From 31 October 2010, which marked the start of the Northern Winter 2010 schedule, carriers have added services to Northeast and Southeast Asia to destinations such as Hong Kong, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. Four new services have also been launched to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, bringing to 11 the number of daily services to the Japanese capital1.

On the cargo front, 162,400 tonnes were moved in October 2010, an increase of 5.2%. Year-to-date (January to October), more than 1.50 million tonnes of airfreight were handled, up 13.0%.

Aircraft movements went up 7.2% to 22,488 for the month of October. A total of 217,382 aircraft movements were recorded from January to October, a growth of 9.9%.

As at 1 November 2010, Changi serves 98 airlines operating 5,100 weekly scheduled flights to more than 200 cities in 60 countries and territories.

Changi Airport’s traffic statistics are available at http://www.changiairportgroup.com/ca...tatistics.html

China national jailed four months for hurting CISCO officer
Posted: 29 November 2010 1704 hrs

SINGAPORE: A China national who created a ruckus at Changi Airport in July over a delayed flight and assaulted a police officer, has been jailed four months and fined S$1,000.

28-year-old Fang Xiang, a student, was at Changi Airport Terminal 1 on July 5, waiting to catch a flight at about 9.40am.

He had flown to Singapore from Shanghai and was waiting to catch a connecting flight to Zurich, Switzerland, where he lives and studies.

Certis Cisco Aviation Security Officer Lai Wei Chuen heard Fang shouting at the departure transit area.

The officer checked his boarding pass and told Fang he was supposed to be at Terminal 3 and not Terminal 1.

Fang later dashed into a Gate Hold Room and airport police were called in after a silent alarm was activated.

Fang was taken to Changi General Hospital for a medical examination and placed in a wheelchair.

He then kicked Airport Police Division officer, Sergeant Ryan Yam, who was adjusting Fang's legs in the wheelchair.

He pleaded guilty earlier this month to two charges of voluntarily causing hurt to a public servant and disorderly behaviour.

Four other charges of criminal trespass, using criminal force, voluntarily causing hurt, and using criminal force on a public servant were taken into consideration.
