Analysts are suggesting that Singapore's current Budget Terminal may be shifted to make way for a fourth terminal towards the end of this decade. Thanks to the ASEAN Open Skies agreement that is set to be in place by 2015, passenger traffic is expected to grow by over five per cent each year.
Changi Airport's existing three terminals can accommodate about 70 million passengers annually, and passenger traffic this year is likely to exceed last year's 42 million. So with greater passenger volume, Singapore will want to stay ahead of the curve and ensure the current terminals do not become saturated and over-crowded.
Although there is still substantial capacity still available at Terminal 3, there is going to be a need to expand the airport with the new terminal, given the increase in low cost travel and expansion of new discount carriers in the region.
Given the economic uncertainties, the remaining capacity is likely to be taken up once the ASEAN Open Skies agreement kicks in, in 2015. The agreement will fully liberalise air travel between the grouping's 10-member states. Growth could be anywhere between 5 and 10 per cent for the member countries depending on how they exploit the possibilities within the Open Skies Agreement.
The philosophy at Changi has always been to build ahead of demand and that applied to Terminal 3 as well. In March 2008, the Transport Ministry confirmed that Singapore will have a Terminal 4 at Changi Airport. This was mentioned in Parliament, just two months after the opening of Terminal 3 in January. Since then, authorities have been working on the master plan but little has been revealed about the details.
There have been talks that Terminal 4 is likely to be located on reclaimed land, along Changi Coast Road, near to runway three but there also exists the possibility of locating it where the current Budget Terminal is positioned. This would of course involved a relocation of the low cost terminal but so long as the new terminal is setup within the boundaries of Changi and its three terminals then there will be sufficient connectivity to keep the terminals within close proximity of one another.
If the Budget Terminal did make way for a fourth terminal then budget carriers would then likely have to shift their operations to Terminals 1 and 2.
Dallas Airmotive recently announced that it will open a new Regional Turbine Center (RTC) at Singapore’s Seletar Airport in February 2012. Initially launching as a Honeywell authorized service center, the facility will offer line maintenance and major periodic inspections on Honeywell TFE731 turbofan engines and line maintenance on various Honeywell engines and APUs.
The agreement between Honeywell and Dallas Airmotive is indicative of both companies’ commitment to serving this high-growth market and the timing is right for establishing an engine service facility in the Asia Pacific region.
While the Singapore RTC will initially concentrate on servicing Honeywell engines, Dallas Airmotive is already posed to expand the location’s capabilities in 2012. McElroy indicated that the agreement with Honeywell doesn’t preclude Dallas Airmotive from servicing other manufacturers’ engines and that it is likely the center will see an expansion into servicing other products. The company is also making plans to install a First Support global command center at its new Singapore location, with a target opening date of mid-summer 2012.
Other Dallas Airmotive RTCs have also recently expanded their capabilities. Already a Pratt & Whitney Canada designated overhaul facility, the Dallas Love Field RTC is now offering PW306C hot-section inspection services in anticipation of the first round of inspections required for the engines powering the Cessna Citation Sovereign fleet. Dallas Airmotive do Brasil also recently added Honeywell TFE731 and 36 series APU authorizations to its capabilities.
Seletar Airport, Singapore’s secondary civilian gateway, has completed the 250-metre extension of its runway to allow for bigger aircraft. The runway extension project forms part of the airport’s multi-year upgrade project – expected to be completed by 2014 – which will include a new control tower and fire station, an increased number of parking stands, additional taxiways, upgraded aircraft parking aprons, as well as an instrument landing system.
The gateway, which is managed by Changi Airport Group (CAG), is positioning itself to become a niche airport for business aviation, general aviation and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) activities. Singapore has seen strong growth in the business aviation sector recently, with aircraft movements growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 17% from 2007 to 2010.
Meanwhile, the growth in traffic at Seletar Airport is also expected to continue in the coming years, driven by the increase in private jet usage in Asia, as well as the Singapore government’s efforts to develop Seletar Aerospace Park into a world-class facility. The upgrading works to improve the airport’s infrastructure began at the end of 2008, and with the completion of the runway extension, Seletar will resume normal operations with effect from 15 September 2011.

When Swedish born Kristina “Kikki” Karlsson decided to set up a home office almost ten years ago, she couldn’t have known where that decision would take her. Today she is the creative director and founder of international fashion stationery label kikki.K – Swedish Home/Office Style, with rapidly growing retail boutiques in Australia, New Zealand & Singapore, and not to mention a stylish online store.
As she set about establishing her home office, Kristina struggled to find beautiful and stylish products which she had grown used to in her native Scandinavia. So she designed her own. By combining her appreciation of design with her love of stationery, the business was born. And today, thousands of stationery devotees around the world incorporate kikki.K’s designer products into their lives.
From first identifying a gap in the home office market, Kristina’s journey included a buying trip around the world, and extensive market research. Findings overwhelmingly revealed that Kristina wasn’t the only one having trouble combining form with function in her home office. While decorating one’s home in stylish products and furniture was a priority, the home office was so often forgotten. This was all about to change..
kikki.K opened its first boutique in Asia in 2009 at ION Orchard. Over 20,000 keen stationery lovers passed through its doors in its opening week and over 700,000 in the first 12 months.

Changi Airport's Budget Terminal is set for another expansion as it continues to grow in size and capacity. Opened in March 2006, what started out as a minimal, no-frills structure is growing again, on the back of aggressive expansion by low-cost carriers in Singapore and around the region.Just over a year after the airport completed a $16 million upgrade of the facility, plans are already underway for more expansion.
Estimated to cost $25 million, the impending works include:
Constructing two new boarding gates for departing passengers - adding to the current 10;
Building two more aircraft parking bays;
Extending the 400m-long corridor from the tarmac to the arrival hall to serve the new gates;
Adding a fourth baggage claim belt;
Fitting new tiles for the toilets as well as the linkway from the departure to arrival block.
The project is expected to be fully completed by January 2013. The upgrading works planned for the Budget Terminal will cater to even more future growth that is expected in the sector. A key focus of the project is to increase the terminal's aircraft handling capacity, with the construction of the two additional boarding gates and parking bays.
Following the last round of expansion, the terminal can now handle up to seven million passengers a year - about a tenth of Changi Airport's total handling capacity - up from just 2.7 million when it opened. In just six years, low-cost carriers now account for about a fifth of Changi's total passenger traffic of 42 million last year, and operate one in four of all flights.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Changi Airport Group (CAG) has announced the development of a new Air Cargo Express (ACE) Hub. Leveraging the excellent connectivity of Changi Airport, the ACE Hub will further strengthen Singapore’s position as a key centre for Air Express Companies (AECs) and their gateway to air express cargo markets such as in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Oceania, allowing AECs to expand their reach to these regions.
Strategically located within the Changi Airport’s Free Trade Zone, the ACE Hub is a specialised cargo and logistics infrastructure for use by AECs. The ability to provide fast turnaround is vital in their business. The ACE Hub will have direct airside access to facilitate the unrestricted flow of cargo to and from aircraft, enabling AECs to shorten the processing time for time-sensitive shipments to achieve greater efficiency and speed in transporting express cargo.
Under the Changi Airport Masterplan, CAAS has allocated about 80,000 square metres of land for the development of the ACE Hub and its supporting airside infrastructure. CAG will manage the development and operations of the new facility, which is targeted to be operational in the first half of 2012.
The ACE Hub will enhance Singapore’s competitive advantage in harnessing the critical air express cargo business and strengthen Singapore’s position as a leading air cargo hub. As an enabler of the development of the aviation industry, CAAS aims to provide land at Changi Airport for such specialised infrastructure needs of industry players.
The development of the ACE Hub reflects Singapore’s long term commitment to support the growth of the air cargo industry in Asia. The unique development model of the ACE Hub, including conceptualisation of the original idea and collaborative implementation with CAAS and other key government agencies, underlines Changi’s focus on innovation and partnership to grow and keep its competitive edge. CAG looks forward to work closely with all stakeholders to ensure the successful implementation of the ACE Hub at Changi.
Changi Airport’s cargo handling capability has received a fillip with the launch of another superb facility within the free trade zone (FTZ) – Coolport@Changi. Coolport@Changi is Singapore’s first dedicated on-airport perishables handling centre. By having direct access to the tarmac, it offers cold chain capabilities for a wide range of perishables, from pharmaceuticals to live seafood and flowers, opening new trade routes for Singapore and enhancing its position as an efficient, secure and reliable node for perishables.
Built at the cost of S$16 million, Coolport@Changi will have an annual operating capacity of 250,000 tonnes. Owned by Singapore Airport Terminal Services (SATS), it is designed in accordance with internationally recognised Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) guidelines for food safety. Located within SATS Airfreight Terminal 2, the facility has three multi-tiered zones, with different temperatures ranging from -28°C to 18°C, offering temperature-controlled storage for a wide range of perishables. With its value-added services such as warehousing and distribution, inventory management as well as select, pick, pack and labeling, the new facility offers freight forwarders a complete cold chain logistics solution which helps to ensure that products reach their end consumers faster.
For airlines, the new facility extends cold room storage to the ramp side. By providing solarpowered, eco-friendly coolers in a temperature and humidity-controlled environment for perishables, SATS ensures there is no break in the cold chain. Coolport@Changi offers the added distinction of being the first halal certified air cargo hub for perishables in the Asia Pacific.“With the exponential growth in the halal trade, this certification will further strengthen Changi Airport’s position as a transhipment hub as more halal perishables cargo from Southeast Asia, Australia and elsewhere in the world passing through the airport,” said SATS. “We believe Coolport@Changi will present our airline customers with new opportunities to access new sources of business and help them differentiate themselves better,” said SATS president and CEO, Clement Woon.
Should there be a spike in demand, SATS can easily expand Coolport@Changi from the current 8,000 sq. metres to 14,000 sq. metres. Coolport@Changi aims to take a lead in implementing stringent cold-chain handling standards within Changi Airport, hence securing its hub position in Asia.
