Appointment of new CEO of Changi Airports International

Singapore, 25 April 2011
– Changi Airport Group (CAG) today announced the appointment of Mr Lim Liang Song, 51, as Chief Executive Officer of Changi Airports International (CAI) with effect from 3 May 2011. A wholly-owned subsidiary, CAI is the international arm of CAG focused on airport-related equity investments and management consultancy projects around the world.

Mr Lim joins CAI from Indigo Partners, where he was a Principal for the USheadquartered venture capital firm whose primary interest is in the air transportation industry. He takes over from Mr Wong Woon Liong, who will continue to be a member of the Changi Airport Advisory Group (CAAG).

Mr Lim Chin Beng, Chairman of CAI, said, “We welcome Liang Song to the Changi family. He brings with him invaluable experience in the area of aviation investments, including the development and management of a portfolio of aviation assets.”

Mr Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group, said, “Liang Song joins us at a very exciting time for CAG, as we step up our efforts on the international front to identify and participate in opportunities that will underpin our growth moving forward.”

Prior to joining Indigo Partners in 2005, Mr Lim held various management positions at Singapore Airlines. In his last role as Vice President, Company Planning, he was responsible for the airline’s corporate planning activities, including merger and acquisition strategies, fleet planning, fuel procurement and hedging.

“I am excited by the challenge that this opportunity presents,” said Mr Lim. “Changi has an outstanding track record of excellence and is a world-renowned name in aviation. I look forward to working with the CAI and CAG teams to leverage Changi’s expertise and experience to expand the group’s international presence.”

Mr Wong, 59, served as Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore for 15 years before retiring in 2007. He was subsequently appointed to the CAAG that year and assumed the position of CEO of CAI in August 2008.

Mr Lim Chin Beng thanked Mr Wong for his contributions to CAI. “Since Changi Airport’s corporatisation in July 2009, Woon Liong has driven increased collaboration and alignment between CAI and CAG to further refine CAI’s investment strategy. Under his leadership, CAI made key acquisitions with strategic investments in Bengal Aerotropolis Projects Ltd, a greenfield airport city project in Durgapur, India, and Gemina S.p.A., the holding company for Italy’s largest airport group, Aeroporti di Roma.

“He has also spearheaded the development of Changi’s portfolio through CAI’s consultancy and management services offered to overseas airports including in China, India, the Middle East and Europe. This includes a six-year management contract with Dammam Airport in Saudi Arabia, a milestone project for CAI.”

Mr Lee added, “We are deeply appreciative of Woon Liong’s dedication, contributions and achievements for Changi Airport over the years. I am glad that we will continue to be able to benefit from his expertise, experience and passion for the airport business through his role at CAAG.”

SATS, Royal Caribbean Cruises to launch new Cruise-Fly service
By Julie Quek | Posted: 28 April 2011 1608 hrs

SINGAPORE: Mainboard-listed SATS has partnered Royal Caribbean Cruises to launch a new Cruise-Fly service starting from April 30.

Reportedly Southeast Asia's first such service, it offers customers a seamless transfer from the pier to Marina Bay Sands, for flight check-in and luggage deposit.

This service will be available for its customers travelling on carriers, including Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, Qantas Airways and Air China.

SATS said they had a successful pilot run in December last year.

This service will debut on Royal Caribbean's cruise ship called Legend of the Seas, which would shorten the distance between the pier and flight check-in services.

SATS also plans to continue offering this service for Legend of the Seas when it returns this November, and for Azamara Quest, also of the Royal Caribbean fleet, which is slated to call at Singapore again from this December.

FedEx building new Singapore regional hub



Fri, Apr 29, 2011
AsiaOne


FedEx Express is building a new FedEx Singapore Regional Hub within the Air Cargo Express (ACE) Hub at Singapore Changi Airport.

The 282,700-square-foot integrated FedEx operating facility, which is FedEx's second largest facility in the Asia Pacific region, will enhance Singapore's access to global markets for FedEx customers and support Singapore's aim to be a leading air cargo hub in the region.

Located beside the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore and within Changi Airport's free trade zone, it will house FedEx delivery, pick-up and air operations under one roof.

Click here to find out more!
It is slated for completion in the second half of 2012. When completed, it will have a 5-belt sort system with capacity to sort up to 9,000 packages per hour and house more than 250 delivery vans. It will also include airside infrastructure including two new aircraft parking bays as well as a special on-site facilitation by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority and Singapore Customs for efficient cargo clearance.

"The launch of this project reinforces our long-term commitment to Singapore, where we already have a significant presence with our South Pacific headquarters, Asia Pacific Data Centre and Asia Pacific Financial Service Centre," said Clifton Chua, managing director, FedEx Express Singapore.

Changi Airport Group's Executive Vice President, Air Hub Development, Mr Yam Kum Weng, said, "This unique air cargo express infrastructure will enhance Changi's cargo competitiveness and reflects our commitment to support our partners in their business growth at Changi. We believe the ACE Hub will also enable FedEx to expand its regional operations in Singapore and to capitalise on long-term growth opportunities from increasing intra-Asia trade."

"We welcome FedEx's collaboration with Changi Airport Group to commence the development of the Air Cargo Express (ACE) Hub - an innovative infrastructure that will enhance our air cargo competitiveness and enable companies like FedEx to capture new growth opportunities in Asia." said Mr Julian Ho, Assistant Managing Director, Singapore Economic Development Board.

No other passengers are also allowed to use the service but it's only offered by some airlines.

A Singapore-based carrier in the works for Qantas?
04:47 AM May 14, 2011

SYDNEY - Qantas Airways, Australia's biggest airline, said on Friday it would be considering "all options" for its long-haul operations following a newspaper report that it may start a new carrier in Singapore.

A team led by Qantas executive Lesley Grant is studying the company's international operations and will report back to the board by the end of the year, said Qantas spokeswoman Sophia Connelly. No decision has been made and talk of any specific plans would be "speculation" at this stage, she said.

Qantas may start a premium Singapore-based carrier with about 20 jets to expand in Asia and take advantage of lower costs, the Australian Financial Review reported on Friday, citing unidentified people close to the company.

"We are looking at our international business as it's not performing to expectations. The project team is looking at possible new routes and ways to reinvigorate that business," Ms Connelly said.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce formed the task force in February to address losses of international market share to Middle Eastern carriers including Emirates, domestic rivals such as Virgin Blue Holdings and budget airlines like Malaysia's AirAsia.

Qantas and its Jetstar budget brand carried 27 per cent of international passengers to and from Australia in February, according to the most recent government data. That compares with 30.4 per cent two years earlier. During the same period, Emirates increased its market share to 8 per cent from 6.2 per cent.

Qantas already has a budget subsidiary, Jetstar Asia, based in Singapore. To create a premium alternative, Qantas would have to acquire an airline licence from Singapore. To gain such a licence, Qantas would have to create a holding company that is at least 51-per-cent locally owned, the Review said. Singapore is the preferred Asian base for the new airline although other Asian cities were also being considered, the newspaper added.

Mr Goh Choon Phong, chief executive of arch-rival Singapore Airlines, welcomed the development and took the opportunity to call for more open skies.

He said: "A lot of airlines operate in Singapore. In that sense, we're not new to competition. You still see a lot of capacity has been added to Singapore. We are very liberal and that's good. We want both sides to be liberal as well so that we can also have the opportunity to go to other destinations and to other places and to better serve our customers. "

But Qantas' move may further anger unions in Australia, which have been threatening industrial action at the carrier. The aircraft mechanics union decided on Friday to cancel planned strikes by its 1,600 members, citing safety concerns, but sentiment remained agitated amid claims that Qantas had been moving their jobs offshore.

Finnair begins direct flights to Singapore
By Indo Asian News Service | IANS – Tue, May 31, 2011

Helsinki, May 31 (IANS) Finland's largest airline Finnair Tuesday said that it has started direct flights to Singapore with a timetable devised especially for the needs of business travellers.

'Finnair's Asian strategy has worked extremely well. The Singapore route will strongly support our core strategy as well as serving our main target group of customers travelling between Asia and Europe on business,' Finnair's chief executive officer Mika Vehvilainen said, according to a company statement.

Singapore is the airline's tenth scheduled destination in Asia.

The company said it was the only airline which offered daily connections between Singapore and northern Europe.

The new route opens up connections to its 50 strong European destination network specially for Asian customers.

'The new route to Singapore gives splendid support to Helsinki Airport's position as the leading long haul hub in northern Europe,' the airport's director Juha-Pekka Pystynen said.

Customers travelling onwards through Singapore can connect with flights offered as part of Finnair's partner network to Australia and Singapore's neighbours, Malaysia and Indonesia.

The flights are being operated using A340 aircraft.
