The new SGD80 million (USD58.6 million) passenger terminal at Seletar Airport in Singapore is on course to enter service in late 2018, after operator Changi Airport Group (CAG) obtained a Temporary Occupation Permit.
The 10,000 m² building on the eastern side of the airport, including a 500 m² lounge for business aviation and private jet passengers, will be six times bigger than its predecessor, with enlarged departures and arrivals areas. Features include four check-in counters, six immigration lanes, two security screening stations, and a gate holdroom for about 200 passengers. New airside features include three contact stands.
“The check-in, immigration, and security screening counters are positioned in an intuitive straight route through the departure hall, enabling a quick and stress-free boarding process for passengers,” CAG stated on 4 July. “The terminal’s interiors are designed to create a relaxed and comfortable feeling for passengers.”
CAG aims to process up to 700,000 passengers per annum through Seletar when the enlarged terminal begins operations in late 2018. Malaysia Airlines subsidiary Firefly will relocate its 20 daily turboprop flights from Changi to Seletar.
