Budget 2013: Third runway for Changi Airport by 2020
Published on Mar 13, 2013
1:36 PM


Changi Airport will have access to third runway by the end of this decade to cope with a growing number of flights, said Minister of State for Transport, Josephine Teo.

Speaking during Wednesday's parliamentary debate, Mrs Teo said plans are also in place to boost terminal capacity.

When Terminal 1 is expanded and Terminal 4 ready by 2018, Changi Airport will be able to handle up to 85 million passengers a year, compared to 73 million now, she said.

Mrs Teo who heads a high-level committee looking into the airport's future needs said the next big terminal will not be needed until the mid 2020s.

When required, it will be built near the third runway which is currently used for military purposes. The area is now separated from the existing airport by Changi Coast Road.

Mrs Teo stressed that amid stiff competition from other airports like Dubai, Changi Airport has to ensure it provides enough capacity for future growth.

Changi mulling over need for fourth runway
Karamjit Kaur
The Straits Times
Publication Date : 18-03-2013


Changi Airport is studying the need for a fourth runway to cater to more flights in the coming decades, even as plans are finalised for a third landing and take-off strip.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is seeking consultants to look into the feasibility and benefits of a fourth runway, The Straits Times found out.

When contacted, a CAAS spokesman said the authority is undertaking a study to determine technical and other details for the implementation of a three-runway operation.

She said: "We will also be taking the opportunity to assess the potential incremental benefits that additional airport infrastructure in the future could bring about."

Speaking during last Wednesday's Budget debate, Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo said Changi Airport will have a third runway by the end of this decade.

It will be on a plot of reclaimed land near the airport, with Changi Coast Road separating them.

The new runway will be redeveloped from an existing one that is now used for military purposes.

Industry watchers expect that when a fourth runway is eventually built, it will be at the same site.

The 1,080ha site has been earmarked for the construction of a new mega terminal, as well as supporting facilities like an air cargo centre, by the mid 2020s.

Actual plans will be finalised and unveiled this year, said Mrs Teo in Parliament.

She did not give specifics but added that existing roads may also have to be diverted.

A big question is how the development will impact Changi Coast Road, transport and airport experts said. Options include removing the road or a diversion, in which case it would most likely be moved closer to the coast, they said.

With air traffic growth in the Asia-Pacific region outpacing that of other regions, industry experts have warned that countries that do not invest in their airports risk losing business to rivals.

Changi Airport, which handled a record 51.2 million passengers last year, is now building Terminal 4 and expanding Terminal 1.

The added capacity will enable Changi to handle up to 85 million passengers a year compared with the current 73 million by 2018.

Angela Gittens, director- general of Airports Council International, a global trade body that represents major airports, said Singapore, as well as countries like China and Malaysia, is on the right track. But others like India, Indonesia and Vietnam need to catch up, she told The Straits Times during a recent visit here.

Based on data collated by aviation consultancy firm OAG, airports in the region will grow at an annual rate of between 4 per cent and 14 per cent over the next few years.

If plans by Asean countries to lift regional flying restrictions on member-country airlines materialise by 2015, they will also add more pressure to existing and planned infrastructure, added OAG's Asia-Pacific vice-president Mario Hardy.

Changi Airport handles 4.12m passengers in Feb
Posted: 25 March 2013 2019 hrs

SINGAPORE : Changi Airport handled 4.12 million passenger movements in February 2013, an increase of 9.2 percent over the same month last year.

Aircraft movements for the month grew by 4.2 percent to 25,900 flights.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) said travel demand was boosted by the Lunar New Year holidays which this year fell in February compared to January last year.

Among Changi Airport's top 10 country markets, traffic between Singapore and Australia, China, Hong Kong and Japan each grew by more than 10 percent.

However CAG said airfreight movements declined 12.1 percent compared to a year ago to 126,500 tonnes in the month of February.

As at 1 March 2013, more than 100 airlines operate at Changi Airport, connecting Singapore to 240 cities in some 60 countries and territories worldwide.

With more than 6,400 weekly scheduled flights, an aircraft takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 100 seconds.

The only thing that bugs me is having security at the gate, bit of a pain when transferring flights.
I've always found HKIA to have a really terrible immigration process. You usually wait in a huge queue for around 15-20 minutes.

Last time I flew into Heathrow (Terminal 4, last year) I walked straight through immigration (although I do have a UK passport, which helps!)

Try and gain PR or Citizenship, the HKPIC system is the fastest for immigration control.

Changi Airport enhances connectivity to Myanmar
Apr 05, 2013 15:50 SGT

SINGAPORE, 5 April 2013 – Changi Airport Group (CAG) today announced the arrival of a new carrier, Golden Myanmar Airlines, at Singapore Changi Airport. The carrier will operate daily services connecting Singapore via Yangon to Mandalay, the financial capital of Myanmar.

Mandalay is a new city link for Changi Airport and brings to 47 the number of cities in Southeast Asia that Changi is connected to. The new service by Golden Myanmar Airlines further enhances Changi Airport’s position as a key gateway to the region.

CAG’s Senior Vice President for Market Development, Mr Lim Ching Kiat, said, “We are extremely delighted to welcome Golden Myanmar into Changi’s family of airlines. This is a significant milestone for us given the tremendous growth opportunities for business and leisure travel between Singapore and Myanmar. We are confident that the additional flights will make it easier for people to travel between the two countries and we look forward to working closely with the airline to realise the growth potential that exist in the two markets.”

Bilateral trade between Singapore and Myanmar increased 8.6%[1] last year compared to 2011. The commencement of Golden Myanmar’s flights to Singapore comes at an opportune time as Myanmar steps up efforts to accelerate social-economic development in the country.

Mr Aung Gyi, Golden Myanmar Airlines’ Managing Director, said, “Singapore and Myanmar have enjoyed strong trade and economic links over the last few years and Singapore currently ranks among one of Myanmar’s top trade partners. Coupled with Changi Airport's strength as a well connected aviation hub, it was not a difficult decision for us to make her our first international destination. We plan to utilise Singapore as an extended gateway into Myanmar’s leading commercial cities and we also hope to reach other parts of Asia from Changi Airport.”

Passenger traffic between Singapore and Myanmar has grown positively in recent years. In the five years from 2008 to 2012, passenger movements between the two countries increased by 17.0% annually on a compounded basis. In 2012, passenger traffic grew by 22.8% year-on-year to reach 406,000 movements.

“The decision by Golden Myanmar Airlines to choose Changi as its first international port-of-call reflects the strength and robust potential of our air hub and we are truly honoured by this confidence. Looking ahead, we remain determined to build on our capabilities to secure Changi Airport’s position as the preferred gateway to Asia for travellers from all over the world,” added Mr Lim.

Changi Airport emerges top at Skytrax World Airport Awards 2013
POSTED: 11 Apr 2013 10:58 AM


Singapore’s Changi Airport is tops again in this year's Skytrax World Airport Awards. This is the fourth time Changi Airport is named the World's Best Airport. The awards were announced in Geneva on Thursday morning.

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s Changi Airport is tops again in this year's Skytrax World Airport Awards.

This is the fourth time Changi Airport is named the World's Best Airport.

The awards were announced in Geneva on Thursday morning.

Skytrax chairman Edward Plaisted said: "Changi Airport continues to be a leader and innovator within the industry and is a key reason why it has been ranked amongst the top 3 airports for the last 14 years of the awards."

Changi Airport also picked up the awards for Best Airport in Asia and the Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.

"The vast array of leisure and entertainment facilities really stands out at Changi and serves to highlight the extent to which the airport management has gone to ensure maximum levels of passenger satisfaction. We only have to look at the fact that Changi served more than 50 million passengers for the first time during 2012, to see that it continues to attract customers and maintain its place as one of the world's leading hub airports," added Mr Plaisted.

Changi Airport beat South Korea’s Incheon International Airport to take the top spot. In third place was Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, followed by Hong Kong International Airport, and in fifth place Beijing Capital International Airport.

Congratulations to Changi! I truly hope other airports can emulate Singapore's example of how an efficient and modern airport can bring in, not just tourists and businessmen, but also awards and accolades.

Question also: any new flights coming soon to/from Singapore that have been reported or rumored lately?

S'pore 'said no to Qantas premium airline'
Karamjit Kaur
The Straits Times
Publication Date : 12-04-2013


Singapore said "no" when Qantas asked if it could set up a premium airline here, Simon Hickey, head of the Australian carrier's international operations, has revealed.

If the authorities here change their minds, the flying kangaroo is happy to revisit the matter, he told The Straits Times yesterday at the opening of Qantas' new lounge at Changi Airport.

For more than a year since talks started between the airline and aviation authorities here on plans by Qantas to set up a new premium airline, neither party had confirmed that Singapore is not interested - until now.

Hickey said: "The Singapore Government said 'no'. We're still open to hearing if that (the decision) changes but you take the umpire's decision."

He also revealed that the airline is not interested in Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, which had been earlier flagged as potential bases for the new carrier.

Despite Singapore's rejection and Qantas' recent decision to move its hub for Australia-Europe flights from Changi Airport to Dubai, the airline is committed to its operations here, he said.

To tap strong growth in Asia, the Australian airline will work closely with its low-cost arm Jetstar and other partner airlines.

It has also retimed its flights to Singapore to give travellers more flight options to the rest of Asia.

Capacity on services to Singapore, in terms of seating numbers, has also increased by up to 40 per cent.

"We used to spend a lot of time flying through Asia. Now we are much more focused on flying to Asia, and for Asia," Hickey said.

Qantas' new Asian strategy and its tie-up with Emirates are part of a bigger plan to turn its loss-making international business around.

In the six months to the end of December, the airline reported profits in all parts of its business except Qantas International, which posted a before-tax loss of A$91 million (US$96 million).

On whether Dubai will ever take Singapore's place as Qantas' biggest base away from home, Hickey said: "I don't see that happening."

This is because Singapore is a key hub for Qantas' Asian operations and traffic between Australia and Singapore is also increasing.

He later said in response to the same question: "It's very difficult to say."

Singapore and Dubai serve different markets, he said.

Hickey was in town for the official opening of the airline's new lounge at Changi Airport Terminal 1.

The facility can seat 460 guests, and has 20 showers and several 80-inch television screens.

Hickey told guests at the event: "This multimillion-dollar investment is part of our broader commitment to improve the experience we offer on services to and from Asia, including our Airbus 330 upgrades to begin this year."
