SINGAPORE: Singapore's fifth airport terminal will be ready in the next decade, said Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew on Tuesday at a dinner recognising Changi Airport's airline partners.

Details on the facility are expected at the end of this year.

Mr Lui said more information on the air hub's long-term masterplan will also be revealed then.

He urged Changi Airport to respond to "fundamental shifts" in the global aviation landscape to cement its status as a leading air hub.

Future plans for Singapore's airport are steadily taking flight, with a Changi 2036 Steering Committee masterminding the air hub's development.

Key to continued success is the ability to turnaround arrivals and departures quickly.

Having more flights but just two runways has not handicapped Changi Airport's ability to perform.

In 2012, aircraft movements increased by nearly eight per cent.

Delays in departing flights were 40 per cent lower as of March this year compared to the previous year.

Plans are underway to convert Changi's third runway from military use to one which can be utilised by the airport.

This is expected to boost the air hub's turnaround capabilities at existing terminals.

Addition of a fifth terminal, or T5, will also bring the airport's passenger handling capacity beyond the annual 85 million expected with four terminals.

Senior vice president of market development for Changi Airport, Lim Ching Kiat, said: "When T5 is up, it will also be a three-runway system.

"So both, in terms of our runway capacity, as well as our terminal capacity... will be enhanced. But (as for) specific details, we're still studying various options."

Mr Lui said: "For Singapore aviation to continue to grow and thrive, all stakeholders must also work together and plan ahead together.

"To benefit from our air hub's potential, infrastructure planning and development is key. The strong growth in recent years makes it imperative for us to enhance Changi Airport's capacity."

The next development is to boost capacity at Terminal 4, slated to be completed in 2017.

It will be equipped to handle the needs of low-cost carriers and short-haul flights of full-service airlines.

I certainly hope they build a terminal big enough to accommodate the entire SQ operation.

Looks like some ambitious plan for our neighbour..

 

 

 

The Singapore government unveiled a master plan on Sunday to double capacity at Southeast Asia's busiest airport, build a new waterfront city, move its massive port and relocate a military airbase to free up land for development.


The plan announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong follows mounting discontent in one of the world's wealthiest nations over an influx of foreign workers and expatriates blamed for a range of problems - from strained infrastructure to among the highest living costs in Asia.


The plan follows mounting discontent in one of the world's wealthiest nations over an influx of foreign workers and expatriates blamed for a range of problems


In an annual National Day address, Lee sought to allay those fears, elaborating on a trove of long-term plans that appear intended to counter a growing voter backlash against the People's Action Party (PAP) that has ruled Singapore for more than half a century.


These include changes to Singapore's health-care and education systems, and the move of its port - the world's second-busiest hub for container shipping - to a new location in Tuas in western Singapore from 2027. That would free up land in Tanjong Pagar, next to the central business district, for a sprawling new waterfront city, Lee said.


He also unveiled plans for a fourth runway at Changi Airport, Southeast Asia's busiest. This will allow the government to move a military airbase in central Singapore to Changi after 2030 and free up 800 hectares (1980 acres) of land for homes, factories and businesses....Read more

Correction. SIN is not the busiest airport in South East Asia. It is the 3rd behind CGK and BKK for a couple of years already now. In fact, SIN has never been the busiest in South East Asia since at least year 2000, 13 years ago:

Perhaps the author should rephrase the article and says SIN is the busiest international airport in
SEA, since 100% of passengers are practically going to/from another country :D .

Project Jewel essentially plonks one giant structure over the existing T1 carpark to add to the landside facilities to all three terminals. They've established that they are the best airport for transit passengers. Now they want the non-flying public to come and spend too.

Singapore Changi ensures its future as leading ASEAN hub with third runway and fifth terminal

 

Singapore is finally moving forward on plans to open a third runway as part of a new project aimed at making sure Changi Airport remains a leading hub for Southeast Asia. Changi over the last decade has seen a huge rise over aircraft movements driven by the rapid expansion of Singapore’s budget carrier sector. But this has led to congestion of the two existing runways at peak hours.

 

The third runway and subsequently a fifth terminal will be on Changi’s undeveloped east side, which is currently only used by the military. The fifth terminal will be massive and could potentially double the airport’s capacity to approximately 170 million passengers per annum.

 

Changi handled 51 million passengers in 2012; it is currently able to handle 66 million passengers and is in the process of adding capacity within the current four-terminal site to handle 85 million passengers. But it is runway rather than terminal capacity which is by far the more pressing issue for Singapore. The third runway is not expected to open to commercial use until 2020, leaving Changi a challenging situation, as it is already turning away some airlines seeking slots for new services.

Will Singapore's new ambitious airport plans affect Malaysia and other neighbours?

 

Aug 23 (Reuters) - Singapore's ambitious project to double its air passenger handling capacity by the mid-2020s is set to extend its lead over neighbours like Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Jakarta, whose airports are struggling with congestion and construction delays.

 
Changi, Southeast Asia's biggest and most popular international airport, is keen to seize a greater share of a boom in regional traffic, mindful of competitors' plans to grow into international hubs.
 
The increased capacity also plays into the hands of budget carriers such as Malaysia's AirAsia Bhd, Singapore Airlines Ltd affiliate Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd , Qantas Airways Ltd affiliate Jetstar Asia, which is based in Singapore, and Indonesia's Lion Air.
 
Low-cost carriers such as these account for a third of Changi's traffic, up from virtually zero just eight years ago, and are hungry to expand routes and flight frequencies.
 
The expansion plans, which include a third runway and a fifth terminal by the mid-2020s on top of a fourth already under construction, will double current capacity to around 130 million passengers annually and cement Singapore's leading role as a hub of Southeast Asian business.

The desires for a meal is much much higher for a hungry person than a full bloated one. So, is Malaysia hungry enough to want to be the top international airport in SEA, or perhaps Asia?

Singapore have sounded their intention, and we have just concluded the dead-line for the completion of KLIA 2, so what's next for Malaysia's airports?

Of course - Malaysian politicians always want to show off. However, they are not prepared to put in the work that is needed to achieve international recognition. At best, MAHB is only functioning at the same level as the civil service. So most of those who work there are only looking to build up a personal fortune for their family and retirement.

KLIA maybe able to win in terms of infrastructure, but Changi will still win in terms of overall management and execution. One example, even at this juncture, way before the initial earthworks for T5, they have stated that T4 and T5 will be connected to the rest via the Automated People Mover, airside and landside. Meanwhile back in KUL, we need to pay RM2 to use the ERL to move between MTB and KLIA2. And only landside at that.

UMNO and PAP rule respective domain unchallenged for more than 50 years without any meaningful fight. Both are ruthless and pisses of their rakyat to some extent. But the main difference is PAP made Singapore so far ahead in terms of eveything but physical size. Their execution of various plans are world class. The masterplan juxtapose of having world's best or biggest airline with world's best airport. While in Malaysia, masterplans always disconnect from each other. In terms of aviation, we want to run a hub, but our national airline is sick and ailing. Well, just to give one relevant example. We want to become region's automotive hub but Proton is nowhere near the critical mass despite being given so much advantage. Singapore plan many things ahead, i cant help but to admire. Sure they are not perfect, but the example is there

And what is the core difference?  The policy in developing talents.  Singapore being a small country they have no choice but to develop human resources.  Malaysia thinks it has plenty of natural resources therefore complacency sets in.  Quite frankly I don't see how / when things will improve in Malaysia...

If ever the Lion nation's neighbours attain proficiency and efficiency that can afford a credible challenge to her's, then she will slide into gradual irrelevance  :)

Changi developments to open path to new opportunities

 

  •          New mega terminal (T5) to be ready in mid-2020s
  •          Three-runway system to be operational around 2020
  •          Land earmarked for industrial facilities
  •          Ground connectivity to be enhanced

 

 

            More details on the expansion of Changi Airport, including the construction of a new mega-terminal and the implementation of a three-runway system, were announced by the Changi 2036 Steering Committee (SC) today.[1]

 

Terminal 5 to handle 50mppa[2]

 

2             Minister of State for Finance and Transport Mrs Josephine Teo, Chairperson of the Changi 2036 SC, announced that Terminal 5 will be able to handle 50mppa initially. Based on current planning, it will be ready for operations in the mid-2020s.

 

3             Terminal 5 will be one of the largest terminals in the world. Two conceptual options for the layout of Terminal 5 (see Annex A) have been developed with various considerations such as passenger convenience and airfield and terminal operations efficiency in mind.

 

4             Terminal 5 will be linked to the other terminals at Changi Airport. This will allow the expanded Changi Airport to be operated as a single, integrated airport for ease of transfer between different terminals, maximum passenger convenience and airfield operational efficiency.

 

5             Mrs Teo said, “The Changi 2036 team was clear right from the start that our work is not only about airport expansion. It is also about a well-loved Singapore icon and how we keep Changi flying high. So we set our sights on creating a qualitatively better air hub.”

 

6             Being a mega-terminal, Terminal 5 will introduce new modes of operation for the airport operator and government agencies, and other stakeholders such as airlines, ground handlers, air cargo operators and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) service providers. The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) will be seeking views from these stakeholders over the next two months to further refine the layout. The Concept Plan is expected to be finalised in the first half of 2014.

 

Three-runway system to be implemented around 2020

 

7             A three-runway system will be implemented at Changi Airport around 2020. The project will be complex, with extensive land preparation, such as clearance of existing vegetation, soil top-up and improvement works, having to be carried out first on the 1,080 hectare reclaimed site.

 

8             The existing Runway 3, currently used by the military, will be extended from 2.75km to 4km to handle larger passenger aircraft. Almost 40km of new taxiways will also be built to connect the runway with the current airport and to allow for efficient aircraft movement. New facilities such as navigation aids, airfield lighting systems and a fire station will need to be built as well.

 

9             Planning and preparatory works for the project have already started. For example, consultants are being appointed to advise on the specific land preparation works needed and to carry out various engineering studies.

 

Land earmarked for industrial facilities

 

10          Singapore’s logistics and aerospace industries are projected to continue growing robustly, driven by growing intra-Asia trade and expanding fleets of Asian carriers, as well as Singapore’s strategic location, strong connectivity and efficient infrastructure. To support the long-term growth of these sectors, land has also been set aside to the north of the new Terminal 5 for facilities for airfreight and air express operators as well as MRO activities.

 

Ground connectivity to be enhanced

 

11          In order to create a contiguous and integrated airfield, the existing Changi Coast Road and the park connector beside it will be replaced with a new at-grade road and park connector further east, along the eastern coastline. Works are expected to start in the second half of 2014.

 

12          For good ground connectivity, the road infrastructure will be improved to ensure convenient access to Terminal 5. The terminal will also be connected to the MRT network. More details will be released after engineering studies are completed. The adequacy of bus services to the airport will also be reviewed. These plans will ensure that all airport users and staff are able to travel to the airport easily and conveniently.

 

A better air hub; a path to new opportunities

 

13          Changi Airport currently has three terminals, two runways and a total passenger handling capacity of 66mppa. It will have four terminals and three runways with a total capacity of 85mppa by around 2020. When Terminal 5 starts operations in the mid-2020s, Changi Airport will have five terminals with a combined capacity of 135mppa.

 

14          Mrs Teo said the developments at Changi East require careful coordination and will stretch over several terms of government. “For passengers, Changi must mean superior connectivity, convenience and comfort. So these plans are significant because they strengthen our air hub. But there is also special meaning for Singaporeans. Changi connects us to the world and the plans open the path to new business and job opportunities. That is really the bigger story to be told.”


[1] The inter-agency Changi 2036 SC was established in early 2012 to develop a holistic long-term plan for the expansion of Changi Airport, including civilian co-use of Changi’s third runway, additional passenger terminal capacity and related infrastructure and transport links. The SC comprises eight government agencies and the current Changi Airport operator Changi Airport Group.

I hope they choose Option 1. Option 2 (with its cross-shaped satellite looks too KUL alike).

 

The main Terminal 5 building looks identical to HKG and the new DOH. Probably that is the shape that is best maximise everything?
