Let me revive this thread with an important update...

IndiGo, India's largest LCC, is "temporarily" canceling its services to Singapore starting 1 March 2013. The airline currently operates flights from Singapore to Mumbai and Delhi; however, a business newspaper in India says that the overall impact of the cancelations will be limited since it will offer new operations to Chennai and Kolkata in the process.

Going a little OT: IndiGo will also "temporarily" cancel its Mumbai-Bangkok service as well.

Is there any information why they have "temporarily" cancelled the SIN services...? Financial reasons?!?

Perhaps. The Airline Route article did not explicitly state the reason why IndiGo will temporarily "ax" its Singapore services, and I don't think the airline will give its reasons either because it is an internal matter.

This is my favorite airport of which I fly at least twice a month since it is more convinient for me as a Johorean. I hope that Changi will have a ferry service to JB (The Duty Free Zon Ferry Terminal) just like HK airport has direct ferry service to Shenzhen, Macau and even Zhuhai.

AirAsia drops plan for new Singapore airline unit

AFP
Monday, Jan 21, 2013


KUALA LUMPUR - AirAsia, Asia's largest low-cost carrier, has scrapped plans for a Singapore joint venture due to high operating costs and lack of domestic market potential in the island republic.

"We are concentrating on markets which have big domestic markets and big populations and markets that are more liberal and market-orientated," Mr Tony Fernandes, group chief executive, was quoted as saying in Monday's Wall Street Journal.

Malaysia-based AirAsia flies throughout Asia and has set up subsidiary budget carriers in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Japan.

The carrier, one of the biggest customers for European aircraft maker Airbus, has a fleet of 112 A320s and is expecting 266 more aircraft to be delivered up to 2026.

Fernandes said it is “very clear that we are in the right markets and capital should go into those countries to maximise return”.

An AirAsia official confirmed his comments to AFP.

The airline was initially keen to establish a unit in Singapore, which would have allowed it to compete with rivals including Jetstar and Tiger Airways and fly to more destinations from the city state, the Wall Street Journal said.

More than 50 million passengers travelled through Singapore’s Changi Airport in 2012, according to the airport operator.

AirAsia has grown rapidly since Fernandes, a former record industry executive, bought the failing airline in 2001.

Singapore airport handles record 51 mn passengers
AFP News – 1 hour 50 minutes ago

Singapore's Changi Airport said Thursday it had enjoyed its busiest year in 2012, handling a record 51.2 million passengers, underscoring its position as a regional aviation hub.

"Passenger traffic for the year totalled 51.2 million, increasing by 10.0 percent over the whole of 2011," Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in a statement.

It was the first time in the airport's 31-year history that the number of people passing through had crossed 50 million, CAG said, adding that the rise came despite economic woes in Europe. Its previous record of 46.5 million passengers was seen in 2011.

"Despite weak market conditions in the eurozone, there was encouraging improvement in demand for travel to and from Europe. In 2012, passenger traffic between Singapore and Europe grew 7.5 percent," it said.

Changi was voted the second-best airport in the world by Airports Council International in 2012, behind Seoul's Incheon.

"Changi continued to experience strong growth in the South Asia, Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia and Southwest Pacific regions, accentuating its position as a key air hub in Asia-Pacific," the operator said.

The busiest route the airport served last year by passenger traffic was to and from Jakarta, followed by Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Manila.

CAG chief executive Lee Seow Hiang said "2012 was indeed a good year for us". He added: "In spite of the economic challenges faced by the aviation industry, we stayed nimble and worked extremely closely with our partners.

"In the near term, Changi Airport's performance will depend largely on how quickly markets recover from the (global economic) slowdown."

As at 1 January 2013, Changi Airport handles more than 6,500 weekly scheduled flights with 110 airlines connecting Singapore to 240 cities in 60 countries.

Impressive statistics and wonderful images! No wonder Changi is the best ever airport in the world... Next question: what airlines would you like to see operate to SIN this year? Alternatively, what routes would you like to see SIN be connected to soon?

Demolition work for Budget Terminal begins to make way for T4
Published on Feb 01, 2013 2:57 PM




Demolition proceedings for Budget Terminal began on Feb 1, 2013. Construction crew started with the large "Budget Terminal" masthead before tearing down the roof. The Budget Terminal will be replaced by the upcoming Terminal 4. -- ST PHOTO: TED CHEN

By Royston Sim


Demolition work for the Budget Terminal (BT), a part of Changi Airport for more than six years, started Friday.

The terminal is expected to be demolished by the second quarter of this year, to make way for the construction of Terminal 4.

It was closed on Sept 25 last year, after handling more than 18 million passengers and 150,000 flights.

Airlines that operated at the BT - including Tiger Airways - have moved their operations to Terminal 2. The new, larger T4 is expected to be completed by 2017.
