Other than terminal 3, is Changi airport planning to have the third runway as well? I see a large landfill area from Google Earth. Anyone can explain what they are going to use it for?

From what I know, there is a new airbase there with a shortened runway (which to me seems like it might be extended in the future to handle Changi Airport's traffic, after all its located so near the airport).

A new exhibition centre for aviation will also be built there within the next couple of years for the Changi International Airshow.

I think there are a few other facilities there like a new high tech water reclaimation plant and some other stuff.

Other than that, its pretty much empty there... I think its generally zoned for aviation...

Personal opinion: I envisage the entire place to have a totally new airport in a decade or two's time...there is adequate space for it and the current airport location could only handle maybe one more terminal, Terminal 4, in the coming decade without being located too far apart from the existing terminals.

So, will Terminal 3 be completely Singapore Airlines? It seems logical but I don't think the terminal has enough gates for all of the airline's flights.

Terminal 3 will be completely used by Singapore Airlines. Some flights will remain at Terminal 2 though.

Its low cost carrier offshoot ''Tiger Airways'' will also be the only carrier using the Budget Terminal (so far, that is).

Terminal 1 (Being Upgraded): All Other Airlines
Terminal 2 (Upgrading Partially Completed): Singapore Airlines & A Few Others
Terminal 3 (2008): Singapore Airlines Only
Budget Terminal (March 2006): Tiger Airways So Far

oh...I think it wasnt awarded yet...was mistaken...

The article:

Lum Chang, InterContinental poised to clinch airport hotel site

12 Jan 06

Hotel expected to be flagged as a Crowne Plaza

(SINGAPORE) The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is likely to award a site for a hotel in Terminal 3 to a joint venture comprising Lum Chang group and InterContinental Hotels Group, sources say.

InterContinental is expected to flag the four-star property as a Crowne Plaza. The hotel, which will have up to 400 rooms, should be ready by early 2008 when the new terminal opens.

The tender for the site closed in November and is understood to have attracted five bids.

The other four bids were also from joint ventures involving developers/equity investors and hotel operators. They include:


A joint venture involving City Developments and its hotel arm Millennium & Copthorne;


A tie-up involving Novotel and a private fund;


Malaysia's IGB Group teaming up with its hotel unit Cititel;

A partnership between Shimizu and Radisson.

Sources say the five contenders also made submissions in an earlier expression-of-interest exercise that closed in August last year. For that exercise, Shimizu is said to have partnered Starwood but later decided to team up with Radisson for the final tender submission in November.

What is also interesting is that all five bids in the final tender were close to one another, sources say.

Bidders offered an annual payment of several hundred thousand dollars as a base sum plus 3-4 per cent of gross revenue from the hotel each year. What probably clinched the deal for InterContinental Hotels and Lum Chang is the strength of the former's reservation network, say industry observers.

CAAS appointed DTZ Debenham Tie Leung and HVS International as consultants to seek suitable investors in the project.

According to earlier reports, it could cost around $100 million in construction costs and fees to build the hotel.

The site is expected to be leased on a 60-year term. It can be developed up to a maximum gross floor area of 32,200 sq metres spread over eight or nine levels above the new terminal's north basement carpark. Unlike the two existing transit hotels with a combined 146 rooms and located within the restricted areas of Changi Airport, the new hotel will be situated in the public area of Terminal 3.

The proposed hotel will be linked to Terminal 3 above the north basement car park and will allow guests direct access from the hotel lobby into Terminal 3's departure hall at the same level.

The new hotel will cater to air travellers with short stopovers, as well as corporate travellers involved in businesses or meetings near the airport.

I noticed the Singapore flag is taken down half pole...its a national mourning of the passing away of one of Singapore's founding fathers i thought?

Indeed it is. The passing of the late Mr. Rajaratnam, former Prime Minister of Singapore.

$92M INVESTMENT
LC Development to build airport hotel

LISTED LC Development has just been awarded a contract to develop and manage Singapore's first full-fledged airport hotel.

It is pumping in an estimated $92 million into Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel, to be managed by the InterContinental Hotels Group under its upscale Crowne Plaza brand.

The hotel, which will occupy about 7,700 sq m next to the upcoming Terminal 3, is expected to be ready when the terminal opens in 2008, said the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).

The firm will pay CAAS annual rent of $250,000 plus 3 to 5 per cent of the hotel's annual revenue.

Designed by WoHa Architects, the nine-storey hotel will have 300 to 350 rooms, a 500-seater ballroom, 1,500 sq m of meeting room space, two restaurants, shops and a spa among other facilities.

It will be linked to Terminal 3, with the lobby on the ground floor linked to the arrival hall.

Woha's director, Mr Richard Hassell, described the airport hotel as a hybrid between a city hotel and a resort and said it will compete with downtown hotels.

Guests will be paying a 20 per cent premium over a similar quality city hotel for the convenience, said Mr Paul Logan, InterContinental Hotels Group's vice-president of development for Southern Asia.

Next Shopping Stop: Singapore Changi Airport

CAAS wins global award by Raven Fox for supportive approach to travel retail

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) has been voted the 'Airport Authority with the Most Supportive Approach to Travel Retail' at the Global Travel Retail Awards for Travel-Retail Excellence 2006. The Awards were organised by Raven Fox, a UK-based global publisher of travel-retail for both print and online publications, such as the "Duty Free News International magazine".

The award was a result of votes cast by the concession operators and the brands. It is a recognition of CAAS' support given to the retailers and concessionaires operating at Changi Airport. "This award goes to show that our philosophy of treating all our concessionaires as business partners and our approach of achieving a win-win partnership with them is appreciated and acknowledged by them," said Ms Lim Peck Hoon, Director (Commercial), CAAS.

Last year, some 32.4 million passengers passed through Changi Airport, many of whom came from all over the world. To cater to the international tastes and preferences of these passengers, CAAS has juxtaposed a retail and food & beverage mix at Changi Airport to include both leading international brands as well as popular Asian and Singapore brands. In recent years, it has introduced more brands and products with unique Asian and local characters to the retail offerings at Changi Airport. This further differentiates Changi's travel retail offerings from others.

"To complement the usual high street or luxury global brands, Changi offers a wide range of Asian brands that are popular not just with travellers from the region, but even international long-haul travellers. This gives Changi's passengers, especially those who are on transit, a chance to experience local and Asian products and food. Without stepping out of the airport, they can shop for local brand name products and even sample local flavours that are uniquely Singapore," Ms Lim continued. She revealed that CAAS will be offering more information on the retail opportunities at Changi's new Terminal 3 later this year and is looking forward to partnering more operators and brands at the new terminal.

Now into the second year, this 'Airport Authority with the Most Supportive Approach to Travel Retail' award was presented to CAAS in London on 10 March 2006 during the Raven Fox Charity Ball. The other nominees for this award this year included the Airport Authority of Hong Kong ( Hong Kong International Airport ) and the BAA ( London Heathrow Airport ). The award was won by BAA last year.
