Earth Hour takes off at Changi Airport for the third consecutive year

SINGAPORE, 24 March 2011 – As part of its efforts to raise awareness about the environment and climate change, Changi Airport Group (CAG) will participate in Earth Hour 2011 for the third consecutive year and pledge its support to the global sustainability movement.

CAG will switch off all decorative lights and dim the non-critical operational lights in Changi Airport from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm on 26 March (Saturday). This one-hour effort throughout Changi’s four terminals will result in energy savings equivalent to the total amount of electricity consumed by a typical 4-room HDB apartment over a period of approximately three months.

The impact of Changi’s Earth Hour effort will be most visible at Terminal 3, as lights at the Departure Hall and Departure/ Transit Mall will be dimmed by 80%. Lights at the terminal’s façade and its kerbside at the Departure, Arrival and Basement 1 levels will also be dimmed.

This year, the Earth Hour initiative at Changi will be extended to the Budget Terminal which will see lights at the Arrival and Departure corridors dimmed by as much as 50%. The lights illuminating the ‘Budget Terminal’ sign above the terminal building and the ‘Changi Airport’ sign along Airport Boulevard will also be switched off during Earth Hour.

To heighten awareness and reinforce the significance of Earth Hour, CAG will organise a simple quiz for passengers and visitors at Terminal 3’s Departure Hall and inside the airport’s restricted areas. Passengers and visitors who participate in the quiz will receive an environmentally friendly, battery-less torch as a token to mark the occasion. CAG will also spread the green message to all airport staff, passengers and visitors via displays on plasma screens across the main terminals and announcements over the airport's public address system. Trials have been conducted to ensure that the Earth Hour effort will not affect airport operations.

From 26 March 2011 until 1 April 2011, exhibition panels will be set up at Terminal 2’s Departure Hall. These panels, located near Check-in rows 1 and 12, aim to educate passengers and visitors about Earth Hour and provide green tips on what individuals can do to protect the environment.

Environmentally friendly practices will continue to be implemented by CAG beyond Earth Hour. As part of the ‘Changi Goes Green’ programme, various initiatives have been implemented which includes dimming lights at airport terminals by as much as 50% during off-peak hours, increasing the temperature in the terminal buildings’ general areas from 23 to 24 degrees Celsius and installing motion sensors in areas such as toilets and offices to conserve electricity. Solar photovoltaic panels have also been installed on the roof of the Budget Terminal and are generating about 950 kWh of energy a day, resulting in energy savings amounting to some S$80,000 a year.

CAG became ISO 14001 certified just this month (March 2011) and has also attained the Green Mark for Terminal 3 in 2009 – a reflection of the company’s efforts to incorporate best practices in environmental design and construction. Terminal 2 will receive its Green Mark status later this year, while CAG will pursue the Green Mark for Terminal 1 after the current upgrading project is completed.

This picture was actually taken in the basement of the airport. The shorter escalators take you to the arrival hall which is located on the 1st floor while the longer escalators take you to the departure hall on level 2.

"Secret" List of World's Best Airports Revealed
Published March 30, 2011 | NewsCore


LONDON – Singapore Changi Airport is air passengers' favorite travel hub, according to a confidential report cited by The (London) Times Wednesday.

Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea, came second -- followed by Hong Kong International, Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, and Beijing Capital International, China.

Jackson Mississippi was the only US airport to feature in the top ten -- it ranked eighth, while Dallas Love Field Airport was 94th.

Also among the top rated were Pu Deng Shanghai, China, in sixth place, Gimpo International in Seoul in seventh place, Humberside Airport in the UK in ninth place and Kuala Lumpur International in tenth place.

The airport quality data, known as ASQs, are compiled by the trade body Airports Council International and are rarely made public. The international table of the world's 146 principal airports tells the aviation industry how passengers really feel, according to The Times.

Some of the major European airports were close to the bottom of the table. London's Heathrow -- the world's fourth busiest airport -- was in 99th place, with passengers complaining of long security queues and poor "ambience."
Amsterdam Schiphol in Holland was 93rd on the list, Ireland's Dublin Airport 98th, Frankfurt Airport in Germany 126th and Paris Charles de Gaulle five from the bottom at 137th. The Times did not say which airport was 146th on the list.

Meanwhile The Times also obtained scheduling data which showed it now takes 40 per cent longer to fly from Heathrow to Paris, despite more than 30 years of advances in aviation. The journey time -- measured from departure gate to arrival gate -- has increased from 57 minutes in 1979 to between 70 and 80 minutes last year, suggesting that congestion is needlessly delaying flights.

The state of Britain's airport infrastructure prompted 74 business leaders to write a letter to The Times decrying "blighted" airports that were "overstretched, congested and prone to disruption". They claimed the British government's lack of an aviation strategy threatened economic growth because it put a constraint on trade and tourism.

Operating indicators for March 2011

SINGAPORE, 21 April 2011 – Passenger traffic at Singapore Changi Airport rose 7.5% year-on-year to 3.71 million in March 2011. This was despite declines of 9.6% and 5.0% respectively for passenger movements between Singapore and Tokyo and Japan respectively.

Aircraft movements for the month increased 13.0% to 24,400 as low cost carriers (LCCs) continued to enjoy very strong growth. LCC passenger traffic rose 22.8% during the month, and, year-to-date, accounted for about 24% all traffic at Changi. On the cargo front, March 2011 was Changi's busiest month in three years, with airfreight movements increasing 5.6% to 166,100 tonnes.

For the quarter (January to March 2011), Changi Airport registered 10.9 million passenger movements, an increase of 9.5% compared to the same period last year. This was underpinned by double-digit growth for traffic to and from Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia. Changi handled some 70,400 aircraft movements during the same period, up 12.3% year-on-year. Airfreight movements increased 2.9% to 441,400 tonnes of cargo, up 2.9% compared to last year.

Changi Airport achieved a significant milestone when Singapore Airlines began thriceweekly services to Sao Paulo via Barcelona on 28 March 2011. This is the first time that Changi is connected to the South American continent. Changi Airport also celebrated a new connection linking Singapore with Zhengzhou, the capital of China’s Henan Province. Xiamen Airlines’ daily Zhengzhou-Xiamen-Singapore flight began on 27 March. As at 1 April 2011, Changi serves some 100 airlines operating 5,600 weekly 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

Other highlights
New Outlets – French luxury food purveyor Fauchon has set up its second outlet at Changi Airport. The new Fauchon Paris – Le Bar à Caviars, located at Terminal 3’s Departure Transit Hall, will serve Fauchon’s famous caviars, smoked salmon, oysters and shellfish such as king crabs and shrimps.

Indian specialist scarf supplier Pashma has opened two outlets in Changi. Featured in an open kiosk concept, the two outlets located at the Transit Halls of Terminals 2 and 3 offer a range of silk and silk cashmere luxury tops to travellers and discerning shoppers of cashmere products.
