Well...why would there be a maglev to Johor Bahru when they are much more interested in developing their own aviational hub at Senai?

SATS to expand overseas as domestic competition intensifies

SINGAPORE : Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS) plans to expand its operations overseas as competition increases in Singapore.

The company is the catering and ground handling unit of Singapore Airlines.

Operations outside Singapore made up 15.5 per cent of the company's profit before tax for the year ended March 31.

SATS aims to increase its pre-tax profit share from overseas ventures to between 20 and 25 per cent in the medium term, Chairman Edmund Cheng said in a meeting for shareholders.

"The environment locally is getting more and more competitive and there is an urgent need for SATS to expand overseas," Mr Cheng said.

"Even going overseas, the opportunities are not much and when there are opportunities, it is very competitive."

Competition for ground-handling services intensified after the Government last month awarded a third licence to Swissport International.

Changi International Airport Services, a unit of Temasek Holdings, also provides check-in, baggage and cargo services at Changi Airport.

SATS handles about 80 per cent of the cargo at Changi and has been expanding from its home base, with joint ventures at Asian airports including those in India, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and the Maldives. - CNA

Hope there'll be a high-speed rail link to JB in the new bridge to ease congestion!

If they really need a link, you might as well build a third one in the east, which is like so freaking nearer to the airport right?

200 free Internet machines at Changi Airport

INTERNET surfing at Changi Airport is taking off.

There are now 200 machines with free Internet access, up from 40 in January this year, while wireless Internet coverage at the airport has also been expanded.

The machines are in the departure transit lounges of both Terminals 1 and 2, as well as most gatehold rooms - the places you wait to board a plane after the security checks.

The first 20 were installed in 2002. A Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) statement yesterday said that Changi has 'the largest number of free Internet terminals available in any airport worldwide'.

More than 3,000 travellers use the machines daily.

Another improvement is that wireless coverage now extends to the gatehold rooms. Within such 'hot spots', travellers can send e-mail from wireless-enabled laptops or personal digital assistants.

The main public areas, such as the arrival and departure halls, had already offered wireless access, but this connectivity - offered by StarHub - must be paid for. For instance, a half-hour pay-per-use package with StarHub costs $6.

There are more than 80 hot spots, and subscribers to major service providers in Malaysia, Australia, Britain, China and South Korea - as well as to roaming partners like Gric and iPass - can log on too.

Wireless coverage at the airport spans an area of '28 football fields', said CAAS.

Changi Airport to handle 21% more people in 2004

(JAKARTA) Singapore's Changi Airport, South-east Asia's second-busiest, will handle 21 per cent more passengers this year as travel demand across Asia increases, Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong said.

The number of passengers may reach 30 million, up from 24.7 million last year, Mr Yeo said at Bali. The number may increase by an average of 5 per cent to 6 per cent a year in future, he said.

The increase in passenger traffic follows a 15 per cent drop last year because of Sars. Economic growth in countries and new low-cost airlines in South-east Asia is making air travel affordable to more people, prompting the Singapore government to build a US$1.75 billion third terminal at Changi to be opened in 2008.

'We build in anticipation of the demand,' said Mr Yeo at a conference for transport ministers in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation group. 'Based on the growth rate we are seeing now, in 2008 demand will be quite high. The first two terminals will be already crowded by then.'

The new terminal will increase Changi's annual capacity 45 per cent to 64 million passengers. - Bloomberg

Changi offers twice-weekly flights to Qingdao

SINGAPORE - China's Shandong Airlines has begun twice-weekly services from Singapore to the Chinese mainland, raising the number of flights between the two countries to over 140 a week, Singapore's airport authority said on Monday.

Shandong Airlines on Saturday added an additional flight to its existing one between Qingdao on China's eastern coast and Singapore, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said in a statement.

Shandong is the eighth carrier to fly between the regional hub of Singapore and China, the statement said.

Singapore is looking for greater access to China's 130 airports that handle more than 174 million people on 1,155 air routes each year. -- AP

Changi Airport organises games for travellers during Olympics
By Johnson Choo, Channel NewsAsia

SINGAPORE : If you cannot be in Athens to witness the Olympic Games, how about taking part in a friendly competition in Singapore.

The competitors are not athletes, but travellers.

In a move to inject some of the Olympic buzz at Changi Airport, various events have been staged for 80,000 travellers who use the airport daily.

They can compete in games such as long jump, archery, soccer and basketball.

And following the tradition of the Olympics, winners are rewarded with specially-designed medals, plus Olympic memorabilia, and shopping vouchers.

And for those who prefer to watch from the sidelines, there are performances by Singapore Cheerobics Teams and Silat Teams.

The Changi Games are on till August 29. - CNA

Changi passenger traffic hits 7-mth high

By VEN SREENIVASAN

PASSENGER traffic at Changi Airport in July soared to its highest level since December 2003, with some 2.68 million travellers using the hub.

This was a 26.3 per cent increase from 2.12 million travellers in July 2003 and an 8.1 per cent increase from 2.48 million passengers in July 2002 before Sars struck in early 2003.

Just over 17 million passengers - more than four times Singapore's resident population - passed through Changi Airport in January-July.

This was a whopping 44 per cent jump from the same period in 2003 and a 2.7 per cent increase on the pre-Sars numbers in January-July 2002.

Changi's air-freight traffic was also up strongly in last month, rising 15.8 per cent to 151,494 tonnes, compared with 130,797 tonnes in July 2003. The number was also 9.4 per cent higher than the 138,534 tonnes handled in July 2002.

For the first seven months of the year, Changi Airport handled slightly over a million tonnes of air cargo - an 11.8 per cent increase from the same period last year and an 8.3 per cent increase from January-July 2002.

The latest numbers mark a strong recovery from last year, when passenger traffic at Changi tumbled 15 per cent after Sars.

With regional economies on the mend and low-cost carriers making flying more affordable for the masses, Changi is expected to see passenger throughput increase about 5 per cent a year in the coming years.

The number of passengers passing through Changi is expected to exceed 30 million this year, up from 24.7 million last year.

30 million seems to be on track!

It will be a major boost to industry confidence here, I suppose, even if it is just short of the 30 million of coz. the upsurge is certainly a much needed shot in the vein!
